Max Weinberg and The Smithereens (featuring Marshall Crenshaw) will both perform at a free Sept. 10 concert at Oak Ridge Park in Clark, presented by the Union County Board of Commissioners.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets or lawn chairs to the 6-10 p.m. event, which will also feature Ray Andersen’s “Bowie and Beyond” tribute to the late David Bowie.
The Union County website, ucnj.org, does not specify whether Weinberg will be presenting his Max Weinberg’s Jukebox show or performing in some other manner. But Weinberg’s own website, maxweinberg.com, does list it as a Jukebox show. Jukebox shows feature Weinberg and other musicians performing classic rock covers requested by audience members.
The Smithereens recently announced they will release an album called Lost Album, featuring previously unreleased songs recorded in 1993, on Sept. 23.
The Smithereens are members of the New Jersey Hall of Fame, as is Weinberg, who entered as a member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and who will be inducted for a second time, on his own, this year.
