A big show needs a big band, and that’s what the Light of Day now has.
LaBamba’s Big Band and Friends with special guest Gary U.S. Bonds will headline the Bob’s Birthday Bash show at the annual Light of Day Winterfest, Saturday, Jan. 13 at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park.
The show will mark the return of Richie “LaBamba” Rosenberg to the Light of Day stage, which he last graced in 2015. He’s a former member of Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes and a former touring member of the E Street Band. These days, he’s a featured player on TV’s “Conan.”
Willie Nile, Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers, James Maddock, Garland Jeffreys, Remember Jones and Joe D’Urso and Stone Caravan will play full-on electric sets and Jeffrey Gaines, Ben Arnold, Luke Elliot, Isabella Rose, Greg Kihn, Rob Dye will play acoustic sets at the Paramount.
LaBamba was joined by Bruce Springsteen, Southside Johnny, Bonds and more in the 2015 Light of Day show at the Paramount.
The festival also announced Willie Nile, James Maddock, Jeffrey Gaines, Joe D’Urso, Emily Grove, Isabella Rose and a Tribute to Tom Petty, Friday, Jan. 5 at the Outpost in the Burbs in Montclair; Nile, Gruschecky and Houserockers, Vini Lopez, Remember Jones, Ben Arnold, Joe D’Urso and Stone Caravan, Jim Boggia, Graham Alexander, John Byrne, Nalani & Sarina, Isabella Rose and Lisa Bouchelle, Saturday, Dec. 6 at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia; and Gary U.S. Bonds, Dramarama, Johnny Pi’s Punk Rock Pizzeria, D’Urso and Stone Caravan and The King Sings The Boss at the Cutting Room on Wednesday, Jan 10.
The King Sings the Boss is Britain’s Mark Wright, who sings Springsteen songs in an Elvis Presley style. Speaking of Springsteen, he frequently shows up unannounced at Bob’s Birthday Bash, but this year he’s starring in “Springsteen on Broadway,” with an 8 p.m. showtime, on Jan. 13, so it would seem to preclude an appearance.
Who’s Bob? He’s Bob Benjamin, the Light of Day founder. In 1998, a 40th birthday party for Benjamin raised money for the fight against the Parkinson’s Disease, which he was recently diagnosed with. The first official Light of Day took place in 2000 at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park and has been held in Asbury Park and Sayreville since, with shows in Europe and Canada, too. The Asbury Park Press is a title sponsor.
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects nearly 1 million people in the United States and over 10 million worldwide, according to the Parkinson’s Foundation. It’s the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s and is the 14th leading cause of death in the U.S.
The Light of Day has raised $4.5 million for the cause and much of it has been regranted to organizations which fund specific research initiatives, including the Michael J. Fox Foundation, CurePSP, the Parkinson’s Foundation (formerly the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation), and the Parkinson’s Unity Walk. The Light of Day has recently helped implement the Boxing for Bob physical therapy classes at the Gladiator Gym in Forked River and Gold’s Gym in Howell.
