Asbury Park Music Foundation Teaming with Tito's to Bring AP Artists to CBGB (at EWR)

Sit Back, Relax, and Enjoy Some Music

Asbury Park Music Foundation and Tito's Handmade Vodka announced today that they'll be teaming up for The Mockingbird Summer Series, a 10-week, live music series that will showcase artists from Asbury Park. The artists will serenade travelers from the CBGB Terminal C location at Newark Airport.

Acts including The Burns, Drew the Recluse & Miles NxBxDy, Accidental Seabirds, Bobby Mahoney, Rachel Ana Dobken, and more will perform on select Thursday and Friday evenings and Saturday mornings during the last 10 weeks of summer (July 12th - September 15th). Travelers can get a taste of the Asbury Park music scene while enjoying Tito's Handmade Vodka cocktails at CBGB. For each cocktail sold, Tito's will donate $1, up to $20,000, to Asbury Park Music Foundation. The Foundation strives "to keep the Asbury Park music legacy alive by providing underserved youth with life-changing music education, helping the local music scene thrive and uniting a diverse community through music."

"At Tito's, our mission is to turn spirits into love & goodness," said Zack Flores, Director of Philanthropic Programs at Tito's Handmade Vodka in a press release. "Asbury Park Music Foundation shares our vision of supporting local communities and we're grateful to be able to partner on The Mockingbird Summer Series to support emerging musicians."

"We want passionate music fans from throughout the US and the world to enjoy a taste of what Asbury Park musicians have to offer," said Jim Lenskold, President of the Asbury Park Music Foundation (and avid local music fan). "The CBGB stage in the Newark Airport is a great opportunity to introduce a new audience to Asbury Park's diverse original music. We hope to encourage travelers and locals to experience the live music playing every night of the year in one of our 20+ great venues."
