Michael Patrick’s 3rd Annual Jersey Country Revival will take place at Brewster’s Bar & Grill in Bradley Beach starting at noon on Saturday, September 5, 2009.
The concert showcases live 12 New Jersey Country music acts, features headliner John Eddie and benefits The Cooley’s Anemia Foundation, leading the fight against Thalassemia (http://www.thalassemia.org).
The Revival celebrates its 3rd year of showcasing Country music in New Jersey, while donating proceeds to The Cooley’s Anemia Foundation, whose mission is advancing the treatment and cure for the fatal blood disease Thalassemia, enhancing the quality of life of patients and educating the medical profession, trait carriers and the public about Cooley’s Anemia/Thalassemia major. An organization of personal importance to Patrick, as this is an illness that has affected his loved ones.
Michael Patrick is an established local performer, who recently shared the stage with such country superstars as Randy Travis, Rosanne Cash and Marty Stuart. Along with his success performing as a solo artist, Patrick currently fronts two bands, Michael Patrick and the Suburban Hillbillies (http://michael-patrick.net) and the Ring of Fire Band, a Johnny Cash Tribute (http://www.ringoffireband.com).
Patrick is also founder of the Suburban Roots Concert Series (http://www.myspace.com/srcsnj, http://www.facebook.com/suburbanroots.concertseries), a concert promotion group whose mission is to support and promote artists in the Americana, Roots, Folk and Country genres in Patrick’s home state of New Jersey.
We are very pleased and proud to announce the addition of singer/songwriter John Eddie (http://www.johneddie.com) as headline performer for the Country Revival. John Eddie is a legend on the Jersey Shore, not to mention his success across the country, including regular appearances in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New England and the Midwest. A true-grit rocker, once touted as the next Bruce Springsteen, Eddie’s musical journey led him into Country and Folk territory in recent years. His songs are witty, rollicking, honest and sometimes downright heartbreaking. His live performances are electrifying, leaving the crowd on its feet and shouting for more.
