Williams Honor's 3rd Annual Hometown Halloween Spooktacular To Take Place In Asbury Park

(ASBURY PARK, NJ) -- Williams Honor have announced two headline area shows while home working on their new album. The 3rd Annual WH Hometown Halloween Spooktacular with their all star full band featuring Ron Haney, Arne Wendt, David Halpern, Bobby Mahoney, Scott Bradoka, Nick Douglas, plus special guests, takes place on the Asbury Park Boardwalk at Mcloone’s Supper Club, on Wednesday night October 31st .  Attendees come in costume if they desire and are entered into a grand prize costume contest while getting to hear WH’s vast array of influences in the form of “not so typical” modern and classic country music.

The duo have also announced their return trip to NYC debuting brand new material on Saturday, November 17th as part of City Vineyard's Voices on the Hudson series. The acoustic performance will take place in a beautiful intimate setting, with food and drink served while over looking the gorgeous scenery of the Hudson River and New York City skyline.

This will be the first time they play NYC after their ‘dream come true’ Madison Square Garden sold out performance opening for hometown heroes and newly inducted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members, Bon Jovi. “It was even better than we could have imagined,” said Brown “growing up in that shadow and then actually getting to stand on THAT stage, we’ll take that with us forever.”

It has already been quite a ride in the past three years WH has been together. They’ve released two singles to country radio, touring nationally and visiting radio stations live on-air, hitting the Top 30 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart with their second single “No Umbrella” (#27). Their video for “Send It To Me” (shot on location in Asbury Park and Nashville) won 2018 Best Music Video at the Asbury Park Music & Film Festival.

“We have experienced so much together touring everywhere, ” says Reagan “ but the unbelievable support from country radio across the nation, and of course our beloved WHArmy is truly priceless. We’re carving our careers the only way we know how, by writing good songs, making good records, getting out there to perform and connect with a true passionate audience. It’s been really rewarding. I’m like a kid at Christmas counting the days until we can release the new album!”

WH had major support from over 50 stations and featured television broadcasts on Nashville’s FOX17, NBC Today in Nashville, and Spotlight NJ with Della Crews on NJNEWS12. Earlier this year, they were asked to “ride” through the streets of their musical hometown performing their singles on top of the Light of Day parade float which won 3rd place during the Asbury Park St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Their self-titled debut album has become the only country album ever to have national charting singles written in Nashville and New Jersey and produced and recorded on the Jersey Shore.

‘G & R’ as the WHArmy affectionately call them, have been working on their second album in Nashville and New Jersey for the last few months, with Gordon producing once again. A new single is planned for early 2019.

Tickets for Wednesday, October 31 WH’s 3rd Annual Hometown Halloween Spooktacular at Mcloone’s Supper Club (1200 Ocean Avenue, Asbury Park, NJ) are available online Doors at 6:00pm,   Showtime 7:00pm 

Tickets for Saturday, November 17 WH at City Vineyard (233 West Street, New York, NY) are available online.   Doors at 4:30pm, Showtime 8:30pm.

Straight from Asbury Park, NJ's legendary music scene, comes an unstoppable collision of likeminded influence, chemistry and a true love for country music. The duo consists of powerhouse singer and performer Reagan Richards and producer/multi-instrumentalist Gordon Brown. After spending years separately in Nashville and never running into each other, they both were writing, recording and touring for other projects and artists. The two finally connected while doing a benefit for Hurricane Sandy victims in NJ and fueled by the memory of their fathers, who were both lost way too soon, Williams Honor was born.

Their debut album is available wherever digital music is sold, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, etc. and signed physical CD’s are available on their website.
