Inside the 2018 Songwriters On The Beach Series By 90.5 The Night

(BELMAR, NJ) -- Brookdale Public Radio’s annual Songwriters on the Beach concert series will return to Belmar this summer with weekly performances by acts such as Dramarama, Jason Morton & The Chesapeak Sons, Glorietta, Danielia Cotton, Ike Reilly, The Accidentals, and Animal Years.  Each week features great openers as well. This year includes opening sets from  Don DiLego, The Brixton Riot, Lowlight, Sherman Ewing, Kurt Deemer, Tara Dente, LeRiche, and Mike Montrey Band.

The free, open-air concert series will run from July 12 through August 30. Concerts are held every Thursday night at 7:00pm on the Belmar boardwalk at 5th and 6th avenues. In the event of rain, concerts will be held inside the Taylor Pavilion.

Admission is free, just bring your own beach chair or blanket.  Sunglasses are recommended for watching the opening act as it can be very bright until the sun goes down.

Mike Daly & The Planets

For a long time, Mike Daly had trouble envisioning himself as a lead singer.  He knew his baritone range was much deeper than the majority of singers heard on the radio and rarely heard anyone who sounded like him. Until one day when the late Pat DiNizio,  a fellow North Jersey artist who fronted The Smithereens, entered the picture.

INSIDE MUSIC: I Can’t Remember The Lyrics!
