Music Under the Stars: The Kootz

8/25/2019 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM ET

It’s the “Rock ‘n Roll with Fiber” world of this group of Jersey-guys and their ‘musical friends’ who just can’t seem to ‘retire their guitars’ and likely never will!  The collective passion for classic rock, pop, soul and blues and just ‘plain old making great music’ has been a driving force even a ‘mantra’ in assembling ‘The Kootz’ band. Bring your picnic baskets, refreshments, and lawn chairs, or rent a table and 6 chairs for $100. No advance tickets; donations appreciated.


Registration for this event is closed.
