Old Bridge, NJ – June 21, 2017 – The Old Bridge Public Library will welcome back popular local band The Wag on Sat. July 8th at 2:30pm as part of the Library’s Second Saturday Concert Series.
An upbeat, high energy four-piece band based in NJ’s Bayshore area, The Wag’s unique style varies from blues to pop to rock, and features three alternating lead singers, resulting in a different feel to every song. The band has performed for over 20 years in local establishments and opened for national acts such as Rick Springfield, John Cafferty, Peter Tork of the Monkees and Jefferson Starship. They perform original music along with cover songs, and play monthly at Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, NJ. Over the past year, they have ventured out beyond their local area and have played regional and international tours. The evolution of the Wag’s songwriting is evident on their latest recording, Continuum. Band members include Brian Ostering (bass and vocals), Alicia Van Sant (keyboards, vocals, percussion), Don Lee (guitar and vocals) and Joshua Van Ness (drums, percussion). More information can be found at www.thewagband.com or on Twitter at: @TheWag.
The Library recently enhanced its community meeting room where the Second Saturday concerts are held with a new 130-inch motorized screen, five high definition speakers, a 4K projector and new video camera. In addition to these concerts, the new technology will enrich Qello Virtual Concert events, weekly movie screenings and other programming.
The Wag concert is free and open to the public but attendees are urged to bring a non-perishable food item for donation to the Old Bridge Food Pantry.
