Light of Day paramount schedule

Willie Nile will headline this year’s main Light of Day concert.

Willie Nile and his band will close this year’s main Light of Day concert, Jan. 19 at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, hitting the stage at 11:25 p.m.

Here is the sold-out concert’s full schedule, which has just been announced:

7:30 p.m.: Joe D’Urso & Stone Caravan
8 p.m.: James Maddock & Band
8:35 p.m.: Steve Forbert & the Renditions

This is the 19th annual Light of Day Festival. Bruce Springsteen has made unbilled appearances at 11 of the first 18. When he does so, he traditionally performs with backing by Joe Grushecky & the Houserockers, though he has occasionally made brief appearances with other artists as well.

Over the years, Light of Day has raised more than $5 million toward its goal of defeating Parkinson’s Disease and related disorders in our lifetime.
