(LAKE COMO, NJ) -- Danny Coleman's Rock On Radio will celebrate 15 years of covering the music scene with a "15th Anniversary Celebration Bash" on April 28, 2024 at Salty's Beach Bar (1705 Main Street) in Lake Como, NJ from 1:00pm-6:00pm.  The night will include performances by Radio Fiction, The Williamsboy, Dave Vargo, Jerry Monk, Helen O’Shea and Friends, Jump Back and more. Admission is free; there will be an available menu as well as a cash bar.

Rock On Radio debuted on April 26, 2009 on WIFI 1460 AM Radio in Burlington County, NJ as a one-hour weekly program featuring interviews and live performances largely by unsigned independent artists, bands and entertainers.

The popularity of the program grew quickly and so did its length; expanding to a full two hours causing Coleman to abandon terrestrial radio for the vast audience of internet broadcasting resulting in syndication across the US and in the UK.

As the show’s audience increased, national artists began part of the focus as well.  Performers such as John Oates, comedians like the late Louie Anderson, Steve Hackett, the late Peter Tork and many more have called into the program and interacted with Coleman and his guests; offering insight, advice and amusing anecdotes.

What was started out of necessity quickly became a passion connecting Coleman to music communities the world over. A musician, entertainment journalist, emcee and radio personality who has been called a, "media triple threat" who "has no agenda" appreciates those who give him their time and talent and does his best to create a comfortable outlet where they can be themselves and showcase their creativity.

Over the past 15 years, Rock On Radio and Coleman himself have been nominated for multiple Asbury Music Awards, supported various charities and engaged more than 700 guests in a style that was called, "friendly, relaxing and very comfortable" by a prominent Philadelphia radio personality and former guest of the show.  

The "15th Anniversary Celebration Bash" is a free admission event from 1:00pm-6:00pm. and is sponsored by The Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Foundation, New Jersey Stage Magazine, Makin Waves, Deko Entertainment.
