Side Stage: 1:15pm – 2:00pm - Paul Simon Tribute with ALEO-music, a collective of quality musicians, audio/video artists, designers, listeners, etc, who have settled in the Hoboken/Jersey City area to hone and express their craft, both as individuals and as a community. Let the sounds of Paul Simon wash over you during this afternoon set!

Side Stage: 4:00pm – 4:45pm - Bon Jovi Tribute with Slippery When Wet. Raised on the same mean streets and reared in many of the same bars and nightclubs as Jon and the band, these experienced rockers bring the same energy, enthusiasm, and New Jersey attitude to the stage as the early Bon Jovi, circa 1986! This group of seasoned veterans will be rocking the house on the side stage singing JBJ’s biggest songs!

Pack a chair or a blanket and settle in for day of eclectic, non-stop music, food, drink and good times! Enjoy a rockin’ Sunday outside eating, drinking and taking in all the town has to offer!
