Asbury Park Jazz & Blues Festival

The Guitar Storage staff paid a visit to the Asbury Park Jazz & Blues Festival, held outside convention hall. And sponsored by the Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Society. It was well attended and parking was tough. It’s another great example of how far Asbury Park has come the last few years, considering a mid Summer visit to that city a decade or so ago would have resembled a ghost town. Now it’s thriving.

The Guitar Storage staff took a road trip to a roadhouse in Central NJ to see one of the great West Coast Blues guitar masters, Jr. Watson. Roxy and Dukes in Dunellen, NJ is home to sword swallowers, burlesque, rockabilly, psychobilly and other sideshow acts, and it was the prefect venue for for the quirky Watson.
