Free Concert by The Nerds at Oak Ridge Park, August 31

CLARK, NJ – The Union County Summer Arts Festival concert series concludes its 51st season on Wednesday, August 31, with an evening of energetic party music performed by The Nerds. The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, led by Chairman Deborah P. Scanlon, invites the public to attend this free concert that begins at 7:30 p.m. at Oak Ridge Park in Clark.

You can’t help but have fun when you spend an evening with The Nerds. Enjoy sheer entertainment with the band that combines high energy rock and roll with a stage show of pure talent and comedy. For more than 25 years, these Jersey guys – Biff, Spaz, Stretch and Mongo – have performed their endearing brand of rock and pop covers on a whirlwind ride that has taken them from popular watering holes along the Jersey Shore to Carnegie Hall and the set of “Good Morning America.” And now they make their triumphant return to Union County.

“Bring the entire family for a rollicking evening of music at Oak Ridge Park in Clark,” said Freeholder Chairman Scanlon. “Pack a picnic basket, bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on, and enjoy the sounds of summer under the stars.”

The Union County information van will be at the concert site with personnel from the Union County Police, Division of Emergency Management, Bureau of Environmental Health, and other knowledgeable Union County staff to answer questions and offer information about helpful programs and recreational activities that are available to Union County residents.

Sponsored by Union Center National Bank and the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the August 31 concert by The Nerds is free of charge. Lawn chairs, blankets and picnic baskets are encouraged. Refreshments and snacks will be available from vendors.

For rain information call the Union County Department of Parks and Community Renewal at (908) 558-4079 after 3 p.m. on the day of the scheduled concert, or visit the Union County web site:
