what happened to the Fleetwood mac cover band?They were the best we ever had at the summer concerts and they haven’t been back on years
How about the doors tribute band? They were by far the best act of all the shows put together for at least the last 3 years. Very disappointed to see they are not playing.
Re Woodbridge summer concerts, why no night for jazz?
We loved Cash is King and the Linda Ronstadt tribute band. NY State of Mind was great also.
