Seaside Heights Administrator: 2016 Gentlemen of the Road Concert in the Works


TOMS RIVER-Seaside Heights Borough Administrator Chris Vaz was interviewed by WOBM AM morning talk radio host Jeremy Grunin on the “Wake Up With Jeremy” show last week and gave some details about future music festivals in town.

When asked if the Gentlemen of the Road festival was returning, Vaz said the borough is working on it.
“We’re trying very hard to do that and very close, I think we’re two to three weeks from an announcement and it could take place in the third week of September,” Vaz said.

He also said they are in talks with Tony Bongiovi, the legendary music producer who produced albums for Ozzy Osbourne, Aerosmith, Jimmi Hendrix, The Ramones, Talking Heads and of course, Bon Jovi.

“We’re working on something else for 2017, there’s some meetings we’ve been having with Tony Bongiovi and some of his people to put on a music festival,” Vaz said.   “That’s as good as I can get it now with information, but it will be two to three weeks before a press announcement.”
