The Legacy of Tony Mart Tony Mart Presents DONATIONS: TONY MART CARES, GOFUNDME

Evolving from a small bayside tavern, the Tony Mart Cafe became the legendary rock ‘n roll club of the Jersey shore for almost 40 years. Tony Mart’s was a window into the evolution of popular music from late swing through the golden years of rock ‘n roll in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s; into the new wave sounds of the early 80’s; and ultimately, the setting of the classic cult movie, “Eddie and the Cruisers” which immortalized Tony Mart’s as a rock ‘n roll institution.
From Bill Haley and Conway Twitty to Mitch Ryder and Joey Dee, “The Mart" was a venue for dozens of famous Hall Of Fame musical artists, including a summer residency of one of the greatest groups in the history of popular music, “The Band” which became Bob Dylan and The Band after leaving Tony Mart’s in 1965. The night club literally put Somers Point on the map of American musical culture.
The legacy lives on in the current seasonal celebration of great musical concerts and events in South Jersey. From the magical and unique 29th anniversary of the AtlantiCare Concerts on the beach in Somers Point, the brand new “Tony Mart presents Country at The Point” free concert series every Thursday night in Somers Point in 2022, to the Mardi Gras AC celebration of New Orleans Rhythm and Blues/Funk and classic and roots rock every Wednesday night at Kennedy Plaza on the boardwalk in Atlantic City, the living history of Tony Mart’s musical culture is celebrated in 34 free concerts in the summer of 2022 alone!
