Count Basie Theater | Red Bank, NJ
The 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature was awarded to the kid from Minnesota who asked How many deaths will it take ‘til he knows that too many people have died? Bob Dylan told us that the answer was Blowin’ in the Wind, and challenged us to find it.
On Thursday May 25th, The Count Basie Theatre will recognize this prestigious achievement and the Poets 76th birthday at BobFest. This year the annual celebration often called Red Banks Hippest Musical Event will focus on Dylan’s songs of War and Peace, with the words that empowered a generation to ask questions and seek answers delivered by New Jersey’s own Pat Guadagno, as only he can.
Guadagno performs with Tired Horses, whom he assures us ‘is not a tribute band, but rather a remarkable assembly of talented musicians, each bringing their own individual brand of magic to the stage.’
Radio Personality Big Joe Henry from NJ 101.5 will be on hand to Master the Ceremonies, The Lobby will be adorned with artwork and memorabilia, the stage alive with Bob Dylan music, even the outside patio bar will rock as a pre-show cocktail party with recording artist Frank Lombardi kicks off at 7:05PM
