A free Summer Concert was
held Friday at 6 p.m. on June 18 at the Depken Athletic Field and featured "Big Truck
Music with Rebecca Frezza" and "The Bobby Byrne Show".
The program began with welcoming remarks by Nick Del Calzo, followed by the Pledge of
Allegiance, Salute to the Flag and the Star Spangled Banner.
The Big Truck Music with Rebecca Frezza
performed songs from their award-winning CD's "Road Trip" and "Music in My
Heart" which recently won four prestigious awards. Rebecca Frezza is a NJ
singer/songwriter. The group bill's itself as Kids Rock -- a refreshing alternative that
appeals to young and old alike. Recent reviews state, "an absolute delight for
both kids and parents alike, filled with bouncy, infectious tunes", and "a
free-spirited blend of pop, rock, jazz, and more".
The Bobby Byrne Show is a unique blend of music
that featured Broadway show-stoppers, Irish ballads, Italian arias, hilarious novelty
numbers, Elvis Presley rockers and old time sing-a-long songs. Bobby Byrne is a
favored entertainer of many celebrities with many admirers in Washington D.C. circles.
Bobby Byrne has played Carnegie Hall, the PNC Arts Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral,
Atlantic City, Germany, Cancun, Bahamas, etc.. He has hosted Bobby Byrne Tours to Ireland,
Italy, Canada, Spain, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Branson and more.
The public was welcomed. Lawn seating on the field was permitted. No back packs or
coolers were allowed. Those under 12 were accompanied by an adult.
Refreshments and souvenirs were available. Free tattoos and face painting was provided by
the Girl Scouts. Additional volunteers included the HH Jr. Women's Club and the HH Parents
of Athletes. There was a 50/50 raffle.
The event was sponsored by the Hasbrouck Heights and Wood-Ridge Municipal Alliances.
Substance abuse is a major health problem that puts millions at risk for alcohol and drug
related traffic accidents, poor academic and work performance and criminal offences. The
Alliances look to educate the community of the negative effects and provide special events
to build a stronger community.
