The Light of Day festival has started announcing the new dates for the postponed shows of its 2022 WinterFest, with more to come. The event had been scheduled to be taking place this week, in Asbury Park and other cities, but was postponed because of the COVID spike.
One of the January events will still take place as originally planned, though: The Max Weinberg Jukebox at City Winery in New York, Jan. 12.
