WILDWOOD CREST – Jamison Celtic Rock, one of the most popular Irish pop/rock bands of the Delaware Valley, is set to play at Centennial Park Saturday, Aug. 20, as the Wildwood Crest Summer Music Series continues.
Jamison Celtic Rock has become a favorite of the Irish, the Irish at heart and many more across the region over the past decade. A five-piece band formed out of Northeast Philadelphia, Jamison mixes dynamic reels with rock, modern pop, hip-hop dance beats and more – all while never straying far from their Irish roots. While Jamison drops traditional and more modern Irish favorites into their shows, the band also performs many pop and rock favorites from Pink to Pink Floyd and from Rihanna to Rush, all with a style that makes each song seem as if it were crafted in the basement of a Dublin pub.
But perhaps the best way to describe a Jamison performance is to say you certainly don’t have to be Irish to enjoy this talented group of musicians.
In addition to rocking pubs, taverns and nightclubs, Jamison has appeared live on Fox Good Day Philadelphia and CBS3 television’s Talk Philly, has headlined many Irish festivals and parades across the region and makes many appearances at the Jersey Shore each summer.
Saturday’s event is a free all-ages show. Attendees should bring a blanket or a chair.
Centennial Park is located at Fern Road and Ocean Avenue.
The Wildwood Crest Summer Music Series, hosted by the Wildwood Crest Recreation and Tourism Department and supported by the Wildwood Crest Tourism Development Commission, consists of 21 live music shows every Wednesday and Saturday at Centennial Park through Sept. 3.
Other upcoming entertainment includes rhythm all the hits of Billy Joel with Street Life Serenade on Wednesday, Aug. 24; the best songs of Elton John with Bennie & The Jets on Saturday, Aug. 27; and progressive and classic rock with Sass faction on Wednesday, Aug. 31.
