Jake Clemons, John Cafferty to be among performers at Rockland-Bergen Music Festival



E Street Band saxophonist Jake Clemons will bring his own group to Tappan, N.Y., in June, to co-headline the fourth annual Rockland-Bergen Music Festival at German Masonic Park.

Clemons, who sings, writes songs and plays guitar, in addition to saxophone, released an album, Fear & Love, on the BMG label in January, and headlined the main concert of this year’s Light of Day Festival.

Other acts will include John Cafferty & Beaver Brown, Steve Forbert, Joe Grushecky, Jeffrey Gaines, Hollis Brown, Ben Arnold, Joe D’Urso and Anthony D’Amato.
