(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- On Saturday, April 7, the Ocean County College Foundation and the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts are partnering to host the Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band: TUSK in a benefit concert to support the students of Ocean County College. For one night, only, enjoy an evening of incredible music and food as you support the mission of the Ocean County College Foundation.
This special performance of TUSK will be held on the Grunin Center Main Stage, Ocean County College Main Campus, College Drive, Toms River. Proceeds will support the mission of the Ocean County College Foundation with a portion of the proceeds going to the OCC Repertory Theatre Company.
TUSK covers all the great hits of Fleetwood Mac, which featured the talents of Mick Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks. The five seasoned, well-respected musicians comprising TUSK have been making music together in various combinations and styles, in original outfits and in cover bands, for over 25 years. It seemed only fitting that they should come together to form the Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute, and pay homage to a group that dominated the charts during the band members’ formative years. Authentic-sounding and always respectful, TUSK leaves no stone unturned in replicating the sounds of one of the world’s best-loved, top-selling bands.

Bach's Brandenburg Concertos With Symphony in C You know the old joke: If it ain’t Baroque, don’t fix it? Well, put away those tools, dear reader. Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos ARE Baroque, so no fixing necessary.
This Saturday, December 1, Symphony in C is performing Johann Sebastian Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos Nos. 2 through 6 at the Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts. Officially presented in 1721, these collective works are considered to be some of the finest orchestral compositions of the Baroque era (generally 1600 to 1750). These six concertos are among the most recorded, performed and beloved works by Bach. – And that’s J.S. Bach, for those of you keeping score at home. There are a LOT of Bachs.
