The special Friday show will star Remember Jones leading an expanded cast performance of The Who’s groundbreaking rock opera, “Tommy.” That Sunday, the Paramount will be hosting an afternoon concert featuring The Chapin Family.
Also on tap in Asbury Park is a special edition of the annual Asbury Angels Induction show, which honors and memorializes the lives and history of members of the Asbury Park musical community, “including but not limited to, musicians, tech support persons, DJs, journalists, club owners, record company personnel, managers and promoters.” This year’s event, being held Friday (Jan. 17), at the Stone Pony, will feature The Weeklings hosting an extended Album Release Show for their third album, 3.
