Makin Waves Song of the Week: "Half Bad" by Dave Vargo

Asbury Park singer-songwriter Dave Vargo soon plans to follow his latest single, “Half Bad,” with another tease to his third album due in fall. That will follow the 2016 debut LP, “Burning Through,” and 2019’s “Spaces in Between.” 

In the meantime, folks everywhere should listen to the optimistic COVID era anthem, which is the Makin Waves Song of the Week. 

As the Song of the Week, “Half Bad” also can be heard between 6 and 8 p.m. Aug. 6 on “Radio Jersey” at www.ThePenguinRocks.com and anytime at this permanent link and here.

You also can check out Dave during his weekly 2forTuesday concerts, which he performs at 7 pm with a special guest on Facebook Live. His Aug. 10 guest is Bri & Matty. Other upcoming shows include Aug. 8, Wet Ticket Brewing, Rahway; Aug. 13, Palmer Square, Princeton; Aug. 15, Montclair Brewery; Aug. 17, 2forTuesday with Joanne Calabrese; Aug. 21, Pinelands Brewing, Little Egg Harbor; Aug. 24, 2forTuesday with The dt’s and Aug. 31 with Carol Crittenden.
