Tony Mart Presents Music, Food, Fun and Travel: Let the Good Times Roll!   This Saturday and every Saturday at high noon on WPG 1450 AM 95.5 FM and www.Tonymart.com
 
With the investigations and headlines about Live Nation and Ticketmaster and just how much it costs to see a live concert, it is very timely to talk about what it is we do at Tony Mart Presents and Tony Mart Cares.
 
Nancy Marotta is the chairwoman and Carmen Marotta is the volunteer production coordinator and talent buyer for the Somers Point Beach Concerts. In our 30th Anniversary 2023 season, the Somers Point Beach Concert Committee is preparing to produce 14 free shows featuring the very best local and regional performers, national and international recording artists including multi million selling recording artists, members of the rock ‘n’ roll Hall of Fame, Grammy award winners, Memphis Blues Music Hall of Fame award winners and Big Easy award winners from New Orleans.
 
These are free concerts every week for 13 consecutive weeks on Fridays and the Fourth of July when our own Rock and Soul Guitar Hero, Billy Walton will perform with Michael “Tunes“ Antunes, the only real rock ‘n’ roll musician in Eddie and the Cruisers.
 
Tony Mart Cares is a nonprofit community organization that supports regional musicians and those from as far as New Orleans and Tucson, Arizona. Tony Mart Cares is about to take part in a new project centered around recording of music from “Big Bob“ Ernano and a special posthumous tribute to the music of Mark Pfeffer, Esquire.
 
Mark Pfeffer was one of the finest human beings to every practice law and walk the face of the Earth. We all loved him so much and this will be a project undertaken by Bob and the Tony Mart Allstars to pay homage and honor Mark Pfeffer’s songs that he composed and performed with “Big Bob: Ernano and his lifelong friend, Joseph Sayegh, Esquire, in a band of lawyers called “Hearsay”.
 
We will celebrate the first performance of these recordings on Friday, March 3 when the Tony Mart Allstars will perform some of these songs plus the highlights of the popular Music that Made Tony Mart’s Famous“ show and favorite requests from the performers and audience in a party dance show on a warm and wonderful night, 7 to 10 PM thanks to the support and generosity of Kathleen Lloyd and Dermot Lloyd at Josie Kelly’s Public House.
 
We are elated to share the excitement as we prepare to embark upon the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise in Port Everglades this Saturday, January 28. To celebrate we will share an interview with one of the greatest of the blues rockers on the ship, Randy McDonald, the longtime rockin’ bass player in Tommy Castro and the Painkillers. Randy is very hip to the Jersey rock ‘n’ roll scene and a true rock and roller that has played with Tommy and the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise review for many years.
 
He is excited about being at the Jersey Shore to perform with us this summer, August 18, 2023 as a part of the Concerts on the Beach in Somers Point Series.
 
On the way down to the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise where we will be rocking on the high seas January 28, there is always Roadfood.
 
Starting with some excellent North Carolina barbecue moistened with peppery vinegar sauce and excellent fried chicken at Smithfield’s, we moved on to the spectacular, cheap southern BBQ buffet known as “Dukes BBQ“ where “Chef Granny Sandra” has been cooking up the taste of the south for 55 years. An incredible, delectable array of Southern cuisine is always on the $15 buffet which includes hand breaded and pan fried chicken, the best pork barbecue smoked and served with Carolina mustard sauce, southern specialties including South Carolina hash and rice and what she calls Italian beans (actually fava beans).   Chef Sandra will serve 24 pans of macaroni and cheese on Saturday alone!  And the desserts are included!  Classic Carolina Banana Pudding with cake baked into it, fruit cobblers and an original lemon pudding cake with meringue topping are some of her masterpieces.
 
If you’re driving between Florida and the Northeast you deserve a visit to the buffet at Dukes BBQ open Wednesday through Sunday in Walterboro, South Carolina.
 
Continuing to taste and review the excellent wines and phenomenal values introduced by winemaster, Chester Malloy, during the winter sale, we will also discuss other attractive selections of craft beers, seasonal brews and an extensive array of the finest liquors in the world at probably the best independent liquor store in the world, definitely the best in New Jersey, the Circle Liquor Store open 9 AM until 10 PM seven days a week.
 
Coming on the Saturday, February 4th show, we are delighted to welcome “Madam President“ Janice Johnston, returning President of City Council in Somers Point for a review of the fruits of their labor, the accomplishments of a hard-working majority on Somers Point City Council. Janice will share her thoughts and feelings about the future and great deeds to be done as we move forward with the future for our families and our community in South Jersey.
 
We are on the road and at sea bluesin’ in the Caribbean on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise visiting Saint Johns in the US Virgin Islands, Saint Martin and yet another hokey private islands in the Bahamas between travels around Florida and onto Louisiana where we will celebrate Mardi Gras!
 
Together we share our lives’ blessings and Let the Good Time Roll!
