Asbury Park Beerfest Kick-Off with Pilsner Urquell

  • Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In honor of Asbury Park Beerfest, Pilsner Urquell is sending us 8 barrels of their exclusive, unfiltered, unpasteurized Nefiltrovaný (4.4% ABV).

This rare brew is served on the Plzensky Prazdroj tour and at Na Parkanu in Plzen. A limited number of kegs are exported for special events each year. Though the beer is not kvasnicovy (yeast beer), as there is no wort or young yeast added.

The first keg will be tapped at 8 PM on Friday, January 25. Each purchase comes with a collectible glass or T-shirt (one per guest, while supplies last). It'll be on tap until the 8 kegs are kicked!

“Pilsner Urquell unfiltered and unpasteurized is the way they drank it in 1842, the way they drink it in Pilsen today, and the way we offer it to you, air-shipped directly from the brewery. All other pilsners are ultimately derivations of the authentic Czech pilsner. This is Pilsner Urquell in its original form as it was served 172 years ago." -- Bryan Panzica, Pilsner Urquell National Trade Quality Manager.

Copy of Chris & Charlie Brown

Charlie Brown has been singin' in the bars and clubs, and at churches and parties around New Jersey since the late 60s.  His punk rock troubadour son Chris has been singin' barroom singalongs around the tristate for the last 20 or so years.   The combination of the two is a blending of age gaps and musical stylings united by their voices that go so well together.

Soul Project NOLA

  • Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

With soulful grooves and impeccable musicianship, The Soul Project  brings the vibrant spirit of New Orleans everywhere they go.  Crowds can't help but "let loose" to their energetic and original mix of Funk, Jazz, Soul, Blues, and Gospel. 

And after 4 long years of hustling,  the self-proclaimed ambassadors of funk have released “The Long Hustle”, the follow-up album to their 2013 Offbeat Magazine’s  “Best Of The Beat” nominated debut album, “Music For Movers & Shakers.” The release, the first on the Soul Universal Productions label, represents not only the last 4 years of hard work and constant playing, but the complete journey of the Soul Project from its inception in 2001 until the present.  With some retooled tracks [like Celia, Down By The Riverside and What’s the Meter (With You)] that have finally been realized in their intended form, to brand new offerings (What We Got, BedBugs, Spotlight),  compositions from saxophonist David Ludman (Blue Snail) and Jeremy Habegger (Gsus), and the band’s New Orleans-inspired cover of The Beatles’ “Blackbird”,  this album has something for everybody.   

Finding inspiration in the music of the masters such as Walter “Wolfman” Washington, the Meters, the Neville Brothers and Galactic, the band has been concocting their own heady brew of funk in the great New Orleans tradition for over a decade. Long-standing residencies on world-renowned Frenchmen Street have enabled the band to hone their unique sound, while festival appearances (New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, French Quarter Festival, Jazz in thePark) and regular tours have allowed them to share their music with a wider audience.

The Adlers

The Adlers

The Adlers Band – a fabulous band that has musical roots that extend back to September 1979 at the hands of founder and guitarist Adi Adler, singer and “band mother” Tina Adler, along with their son Barry on accordion and Eddie Spatarella- “band brother” on drums. Austrian and German Alpine music formed the core, and as time progressed, additional musicians to the band- including one of New Jersey’s top Polka band leaders of the 1950’s and 1960’s Tony Szurka helped to launch this band into performing its Polish repertoire and nudging the band in a new positive direction. As musical tastes had changed and time marched on into the new Millennium, The Adlers Band adapted to the changes keeping its core music that remains timeless to its nature, but also now features Party Rock music that conforms to the demands of modern times.

The latest band consists of the original Adlers with Eddie Spatarella, and now including Johnny Grisbacher (Sax and Clarinet), John Miksza (Lead Guitar), Anthony Del Bagno (Acoustic Guitar and Bass Guitar), and Dana Sylvander (Trumpet and additional Brass) and our newest addition, our very special female singer Lisa Podesta joining in 2015 - presenting one of the most intense voices in the industry.

The Adlers are most proud to feature world class entertainer Mike Killmer into their fold. Mike is a former musician of The Dominoes International and MC at Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ- Hunter Mountain Alps Festival, and guest musician of 18 time Grammy Award winner – The Jimmy Sturr Orchestra. This latest compilation of The Adlers Band blends the perfect amount of Austrian- German - American flavor into one of the perfect Oktoberfest / Party bands available in the USA today.
