This is the event that Little Steven fans have been waiting for: His first New Jersey shows with his Disciples of Soul band since the 1980s. They will perform at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park on April 22, as part of the Asbury Park Music and Film Festival, after taping an episode of the public television show “Front and Center” at House of Independents, April 21.
NJArts.net will be giving out a pair of loge tickets to the Paramount show in a contest. To enter, just donate $10 to us via PayPal (this can be done via the “Donate” button on the bottom of our Friends & Supporters page) or by sending a $10 check made out to NJ Arts Daily to Disciples of Soul Contest, 11 Skytop Terrace, Montclair, NJ 07043. The deadline to enter is 3 p.m. April 18, and the winner will be determined that afternoon.
You can increase your chances of winning by donating more. For $20, you will be entered twice, for $30 you will be entered three times, and so on.
As Steven’s old friend Bruce would say, “Now, here’s the important part”: Your donation will help NJArts.net continue its mission of covering the arts in New Jersey in an era of dwindling arts journalism. So even if you don’t win … in a certain sense, everybody wins.
The Disciples of Soul performed in England, last year, and in Maryland, this year, but these are their only other currently known U.S. reunion shows. They will also have a string of European dates this summer.
