The Nerds Close Out This Year’s Union County Summer Arts Festival, August 27 At Oak Ridge Park, Clark

CLARK, NJ –The Union County Summer Arts Festival concert series concludes its 54th season of music on Wednesday evening, August 27, with a performance by The Nerds.  The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders invites the public to attend this free concert that begins at 7:30 p.m. in Oak Ridge Park, located in Clark, New Jersey.

Sometimes called New Jersey’s hardest working, hardest rocking party band, The Nerds perform a blend of soul, classic rock and TV theme music.  The band is loosely based on an old skit from Saturday Night Live and have been performing together for over 20 years.

“This will be the final opportunity for residents to come out and enjoy the musical entertainment under the stars at Oak Ridge Park in Clark,” said Union County Freeholder Chairman Christopher Hudak. “Bring your blanket or lawn chair and arrive early to get the best view of our outstanding musical entertainment.”

In addition to the great music, residents are invited to come out early and participate in

Union County’s Summer of Fitness, part of Chairman Hudak’s Union County Get Fit initiative. Free community yoga classes will be held prior to the musical entertainment, beginning at 6:30. This week’s class will be conducted by Alluem Yoga of Cranford, New Jersey.
