Light of Day — which had its most successful festival yet in January, raising $550,000 for Parkinson’s Disease research — will be back Jan. 5-15, with tickets going on sale Nov. 25 at noon, through Ticketmaster. Confirmed artists include Albert Lee, Greg Kihn, Joe Grushecky and The Houserockers, Willie Nile, Garland Jeffreys, James Maddock, Joe D’Urso and Stone Caravan, Billy Hector, Kashmir (Led Zeppelin tribute), Bobby Bandiera (Tom Petty tribute), Jeffrey Gaines, Christine Martucci, Bruce Tunkel, The Slyders, The Sandy Mack Allstars, Kyle Ward, Colossal Street Jam, Tara Tote and The Billy Walton Band.
As in years past, most of the shows will be in Asbury Park, though there will also be events in Montclair (Jan. 5), Manhattan (Jan. 10) and Philadelphia (Jan. 6). The main concert will be at Asbury Park’s Paramount Theatre, Jan. 13, though the lineup for this show — and, indeed, all shows — is not yet available.
This will be the 18th year for Light of Day, which has raised nearly $4.5 million over its first 17 years.
I will add more information to this post, as it becomes available. Look for updates, too, at lightofday.org or facebook.com/LOD2000.
