Distinguished NJ Songwriters Joe Rapolla and Joe D’Urso are back this year hosting the celebrated Songwriters by the Sea series at the Lauren K. Woods Theatre. What once started in a small coffee shop as an area for local songwriters has
now grown into a series that features some of the top songwriters in the country.
This year, the show features a twist of rock music and country music. The rock music
is courtesy of Eric Bazilian, founding member of the rock band Hooters. Bazilian is also known internationally for his efforts as a Grammy nominated songwriter, as well as being an arranger, multi-instrumentalist, and producer.
Singing-songwriting duo Williams Honor will bring a bit of the country to Woods Theatre. The duo have exploded in Asbury Park’s music scene, and features producer and multi-instrumentalist Gordon Brown and performer powerhouse Reagan Richards. The two previously have worked and toured with many national acts before coming together to form the Jersey Shore’s first ever country duo. They’re about to release their first single to country radio “Send It To Me” from their debut album.
Opening the show will be Monmouth University students Daniel Amato and Brittany Cannarozzi.
The net proceeds will support Monmouth University’s Endowed Music Industry Scholarship.
There will be a pre-show hospitality reception at 7 p.m. and post-show reception (included with ticket price)!
Sponsored by the Monmouth University Leon Hess Business School and Business Council.
