“Music has the power to connect, include and inspire. We are very proud to welcome Rubix Kube to celebrate Pride Month with the Union County community, and reaffirm our support for equal rights and equal dignity every day of the year,” said Board of Commissioners Chairman Alexander Mirabella
“Rubix Kube is a band full of life and 80s music – a decade of songs that were either inspired by our community or spoke to us at a time when we really needed it,” said Board of Commissioners Vice Chair Rebecca Williams, liaison to the Union County LGBTQ Ad Hoc Committee. “Come for the entertainment, leave with acceptance.”
Based out of NYC, Rubix Kube is the ultimate 80s tribute band known for captivating audiences. The tribute concert will feature some of the most celebrated anthems of the LGBTQ community.
Hailing from Elizabeth, NJ, comedian and LGBTQ activist Amy Colon will open the drive-in PRIDE event with social commentary and an invitation to normalize acceptance.
