The Quebe Sisters will perform at a free concert at Parker Press Park in Woodbridge, June 24.

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.

This info is not accurate. The Thursday. Ands are at the Parker Press. Not the community center. At least that’s what the advertising posters say. How are people supposed to know where to go?
