OceanFirst Summer Jazz Series Continues on August 8!

The South Jersey Jazz Society is proud to announce the 3rd in a four part series sponsored in part by OceanFirst Bank.
This 4 part series tries in some small way to capture the music that made the Club Harlem in Atlantic City a very special part of the jazz history of this area.
On August 8th at Clancy’s by the Bay, the Giacomo Gates with John Di Martino on piano and Ed Howard on bass will make a very special and rare appearance here in South Jersey.
In a recent article in “Jazz Times”, Christopher Loudon writes, “There are two contenders for coolest, sharpest male vocalist around…and Giacomo Gates is one. Gates now 67, waited until his 40″s to pursue music full time, but quickly emerged as a deeply insightful vocal acrobat, preternaturally skilled in scat and vocals, and a first rate storyteller.”
John di Martino, Composer, Arranger, Pianist, has recorded many CD’s for Venus Records with his “Romantic Jazz Trio” Noted for his versatility, John has performed and recorded with such notables as Kenny Burrell, James Moody, Joe Lovano, David “Fat Head” Newman, Pat Martino, Paquito D’Rivera and Houston Person.
Ed Howard, currently resides in New York City and is a highly sought after bassist. Ed has also had a long-standing tenure with the Roy Haynes Quartet. Since joining Mr. Haynes in 1982, Ed has had the opportunity to tour extensively and record three CD’s with this grand master of the drums. Ed also sights Clifford Jordan as a major influence in his musical development.
This one set performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. Those who would like to order food should be seated by 6:30 p.m.

Stockton Marine Field Station to Plant Baby Oysters at Tuckerton Reef Restoration Site

More than 150,000 baby oysters, or spat, will be planted next week in the Tuckerton Reef, the first-ever bottom oyster restoration site in the Southern Barnegat watershed.

The project has also generated an expanded oyster recycling program, using shells from Long Beach Island area restaurants.

In 2015, Stockton University’s Marine Field Station partnered with Parson’s Mariculture and the American Littoral Society on a proposal to the Barnegat Bay Partnership’s shellfish research program.

The team was awarded $52,000, most of which was used to  establish the pilot-level Tuckerton Reef with aquaculture-set oyster spat on whelk shell and transplanted seed from the Mullica River.  The balance of the funding has contributed to continued efforts on the Toms River Good Luck

Point site, led by Al Modjeski of the American Littoral Society.

Cirque Italia has grown to the point where the next logical step can only be to expand operations and double our presence at the national level. In response to our wonderful fans all over the U.S., and with over 90% of shows being sold out, NOW is the perfect time for a substantial investment.

Beginning in 2017, Cirque Italia, the first traveling Water Circus, introduces a second unit, the Gold Unit: a luxurious experience where technology and preforming arts are mixed to create a one-of-a-kind show.

This new performance will feature an ultra-modern water curtain that controls every droplet of water meticulously. Cirque Italia is ready to provide a breathtaking experience. This new stage by itself is enough to amaze the most demanding audience, and synchronized with the most creative display of superhuman talent – the result is simply out of this world!

The latest trends of the industry are challenged with every Cirque Italia appearance and this 2nd unit is not going to be any different. A careful casting selection has united the best artists from all over the world. This production will feature acts all the way from Russia to Mexico. Cirque Italia believes in multi-culturalism as one of our strongest assets.

Packed full of incredible acts, there is no room for boredom. The variety presented is exceptional. For those who enjoy smart and well-thought out comedy, Alex the clown thrills while taking an acrobatic journey on the trampoline. Our Argentinian twin jugglers (with a Guinness World Record in their pockets) can handle all kinds of objects in the air, even fire! There is almost no bodily limit for our contortionist as she bends in ways you never would have imagined. She makes it seem so natural, you might end up trying it in yoga class.

Whether it’s a futuristic laser act or mesmerizing aerial performances, the show has something for all tastes and expectations. One thing Cirque Italia sets out to accomplish is to create a type of world-class entertainment suitable for all age groups.

This new second unit also follows the same strict animal-free policy that makes the Water Circus stand out from other circus entertainment shows.

The “magic touch” of the Italian entrepreneur Manuel Rebecchi, President and Owner of Cirque Italia, added to the flawless direction of the COO, Chanté DeMoustes, and has turned this once romantic project into a successful production known and acclaimed all over the country.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be amazed and transported to a fantastic realm where your deepest dreams can -and will- come true.
