Tequila Rose will perform on Friday evening, August 24, concluding the eight-part free summer concert series. The concert starts at 7 p.m. at the beautiful Victorian gazebo in the Jefferson Township municipal complex (1033 Weldon Road).

The group has become one of New Jersey’s hottest “new country” bands over the last several years by mixing the best of today’s country music with classic country hits of the past, and sprinkling in a little rock ’n’ roll as well as southern rock. Known for three-part harmonies, they have kept crowds singing and dancing at many of the area’s top clubs (including Bar A in Belmar and Prospector’s in Mt. Laurel), at summer festivals and concerts, and at private parties. Visit http://tequilaroseband.com to meet the band members, who are all talented professional musicians: Rick Newport (lead vocals, lead guitar, harmonica), John Brite (lead vocals, lead guitar), Joe Luongo (bass, vocals), and Elliott Rubinich (drums).
