Count Basie Center for the Arts presents Back To The Eighties Show with Jessie

(RED BANK, NJ) -- Count Basie Center for the Arts presents Back To The Eighties Show with Jessie's Girl on Friday, June 28, 2024 at 8:00pm. This is the world's greatest tribute to the music of the '80s!

Jessie’s Girl’s primary line-up includes a team of NYC’s top rock and pop vocalists: Jenna O’Gara, Jerome Bell-Bastien, and Mark Rinzel. They are backed by one of the tightest bands in the city comprised of 20+ year veterans of the NYC music scene: Eric Presti on guitar, Drew Mortali on bass, Michael Maenza on drums, and Karlee Bloom on keys and keytar. Each with dozens of credits performing with authentic ‘80s icons who made the music famous to begin with! In fact, Bret Michaels, MC Hammer, Colin Hay from Men at Work, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, Taylor Dane, Mike Score from A Flock of Seagulls, Tone Loc, Rob Base, and many more have all performed at the Back To The Eighties Show.

Their calendar is filled with high-profile appearances and private events around the U.S., bringing the Back To The Eighties Show to The Theater at Madison Square Garden for the I Want My ‘80s Concert, ABC / NY Magazine’s launch party for The Goldbergs, a Halloween bash with Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx, a private birthday party for ‘80s icon Neil Patrick Harris and Coca Cola / Buffalo Wild Wings’ massive “Tablegate” event in Tempe, AZ, opening for Smash Mouth!

There is no decade like the ‘80s and no party like The Back To The Eighties Show with Jessie’s Girl. So throw on your best neon, use extra hair spray on that hair and head to the Back To The Eighties Show – because it’s time to party like it’s 1989!

Tickets range from $20-$55 and are available for purchase online.  Count Basie Center for the Arts is located at 99 Monmouth Street in Red Bank, New Jersey.
