Many New Jersey communities present a free night of music, once a week, throughout some portion of the summer. Woodbridge, though, is outdoing virtually all of them with five nights of free music: Oldies on Mondays; tribute bands on Tuesdays; folk, blues, world and roots music on Wednesdays; local bands on Thursdays; and country on Sundays.
Here is the schedule; for more information, visit woodbridgeartsnj.org.
