March 23, 2014, West New York, NJ: Thank You Scientist, Blue Food, Kill Her Smile, A Touch of Sinatra, The Jon Abel Project; sounds like the musical line up at a Madison Square Garden concert, but it isn’t. It’s the line up at the second season opening of the Riverwalk Outdoor Market & Festival this April 5th.
Located between PF Chang’s Restaurant and the A&P on Port Imperial Blvd in West New York, the Riverwalk Outdoor Market at Port Imperial will be opening up for its second season with a rip roaring line up of rock & roll and cover bands, a NYC based Alternative Rock band, a local Sinatra Tribute Band, “A Touch of Sinatra” and a relative newcomer to the scene, Latin Jazz Pianist The Jon Abel Project who will be playing Salsa, Top 40’s, R&B and Latin Jazz. In between the acts DJ Ray will be playing your favorite radio and club songs.
All the above, plus vendors offering great deals on jewelry, clothing, antiques, art, collectibles, cosmetics, free ten minute therapeutic massages by a NJ Licensed Therapist and a clown and fun and games for kids should make this a great outing for the whole family. Everyone is welcome but the lucky folks are going to be the residents along the Hudson Waterfront near PF Chang’s and the A&P on Port Imperial Blvd in West New York where the market is held every year. They are in walking distance.
“This year the Riverwalk Market is not only going to bring in vendors offering all kinds of upscale items at bargain prices, but live entertainment, informational spaces about local services and activities for children every weekend,” said Raul Vicente Jr., operator of the market.
Vicente said that the market and festival has no cover charge and there is plenty of reasonably priced parking available at the Port Imperial Ferry Parking lots just one block away. Vendors have free parking on site. Vicente added that there is still time to be a vendor and to apply, you only have to send an email to email@example.com and an info package will be sent back right away.
The Market is open from April through October from10am to 6pm every Saturday and some Sundays depending on vendor participation.
The Riverwalk Outdoor Market & Festival Line-Up For April 5, 2014 Season Two opening Day….
Thank You Scientist: is a seven-piece progressive rock band from Bergen County, New Jersey. Featuring a violinist and horn section, the rock group was formed in 2010 by guitarist Tom Monda. Blending genres such as progressive rock, funk, metal and pop, in January 2011, the group released their first effort, an EP titled The Perils of Time Travel, which was received positively by progressive rock outlets. Media Review: Strange sounds brew in strange places, and Thank You Scientist is no exception. With “more hooks than an old tackle box, and more time changes than a broken pocket watch,” the band belies their humble suburban New Jersey roots with a sound that is undeniably unique. Thank You Scientist has been mesmerizing live audiences since their inception in 2010. Dubbed “The Top Unsigned Act in the Tri-State Area” shortly after the release of their debut EP, “The Perils of Time Travel,” the band hasn’t slowed down a bit. On June 8th 2012, the band released their first full length record, “Maps of Non-Existent Places.” The album is a stunning collage of influences. Progressive rock, jazz, fusion, classical, metal, psychedelic, 60s pop and world music all seem to collide together at full speed and the impact demands your attention.
