Veteran DJ Bruce “Cousin Brucie” Morrow, who previously presented “Palisades Park Reunion” shows at State Fair Meadowlands in East Rutherford, will do so this year at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel. Tony Orlando, Bobby Rydell and The Capris will perform at the show, which takes place at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 26.
“Here’s What You’ve Been Waiting For … So Cuz Come On Over,” wrote Morrow on his Facebook page.
The show is free, although donations to the Garden State Arts Foundation will be welcomed. The foundation has been presenting free classical, jazz and pop shows such as this one at the PNC Bank Arts Center (originally known as the Garden State Arts Center) since 1999. Free shows will also be offered this year featuring Vinnie Medugno and The Coda Band, Sept. 8; Gary Puckett and The Association, Sept. 14; and Jay Siegel’s Tokens and Ron Dante, Sept. 28.

A radio mainstay in the New York area since the 1960s, Morrow can currently be heard from 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturdays on “Cousin Brucie’s Saturday Night Rock & Roll Party” on WABC (770 AM and 107.1 FM). The show is followed by “Saturday Nights With Tony Orlando,” from 10 p.m. to midnight.
Orlando’s career peaked in the ’70s with hits such as “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree,” “Knock Three Times” and “Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose.”
