Thank you TriCity News
We’re all for a good live music initiative. And in these times of Covid, making many of us shelter in place, seeing live music has been difficult. So Asbury Sunset Presents, a not-for-profit started by Tim Cabrey, an Asbury Park resident in response to said pandemic, decided to create an opportunity for local musicians to play their music in Covid safe outdoor spaces back in our favorite year of 2020. And Cabrey is at it again in 2021 with a new music series for highlighting and providing exposure for musicians all the while generating donations for area non-profits. It’s called the ‘The Watermark Series’ and it runs through March 13.
The series happens every Saturday at 5pm with streaming performances of local New Jersey artists live from Watermark on Asbury Park’s boardwalk. Watermark is one of our favorite spaces in town and no doubt provides the perfect backdrop for this kind of streaming event. If your lucky enough, you could even be one of six audience members who get to see the shows in real life. Guests are chosen at random through submissions via email to AsburySunsetPresent@Gmail.com or via their donations of any amount to support the musicians and participating non-profits via Venmo @ Asbury-Sunset-Present or PayPal @AsburySunsetPresents. No contribution is required for a chance to win. All Covid safety protocols will be in effect including taking the temperature of any artist or guest in the building, masks required and social distancing. They’re on top of the safety protocols as you can see. Audio and video production by Cooper Davis of Super Duper Sounds.
Neither Asbury Sunset Presents or Watermark profit in any way from any revenue generated by donations to the streams. All monies go to the artists and the participating non-profits. So we’ll leave you with the calendar of upcoming live shows. For more information contact TimCabrey@Gmail.com or call (732) 766-2735.
