Bongo Boy Records finds unique way to celebrate 10th anniversary

Bongo Boy anniversary


The Jersey-based record label and promotion company, Bongo Boy, will present some free music at the White Lake Natural Resource Area in Hardwick Township (Warren County), May 22, to celebrate its 10th anniversary as well as its adoption of a trail there.

Singer-songwriter Paolo Gayan, from Alpha (Warren County), will perform, as will Wildcat O’Halloran, a blues musician from Massachusetts. There will also be a jam session with various musicians. The music will start at about 12:30 p.m., following a cleaning up of the trail that will begin at 11 a.m.

Bongo Boy’s 10th anniversary was actually last year, when a gathering was impossible because of the pandemic.

“Each year we have held a jam party at an indoor New Jersey venue and many artists, friends and family attended,” Bongo Boy co-founder Monique Grimme wrote in message about the event to the company’s mailing list. “In 2020 that was not possible. Therefore, we hope that with Adopt A Trail we can organize a monthly event outside that makes you feel good about yourself by helping in cleaning our parks, be comfortable to attend and share good music with each other.”
