Songwriters by the Sea

The Sounds of Asbury Park and other Shore points are celebrated when a pair of musically minded Jersey Joes — Joe D’Urso and Joe Rapolla — bring their Songwriters by the Sea series of intimate, relaxed, and inspired round-robins to the Pollak Theatre stage. What started out as a coffee shop show for area songwriters to casually perform with other writers in Asbury Park has quickly evolved into a national series featuring some of the top songwriters in music today. Artists to perform include Marshall Crenshaw, David Johansen and Allison Moorer. Opening the show will be Monmouth University students Natalie Zeller, Bryan Haring and Erin Holmes.
