The Downtown Allstars Bring Their Unique Cause to Jack’s Music Shoppe in Red Bank, New Jersey!

Sunshine, smiles and sweet music echoed down a bustling Broad Street in Red Bank on Saturday August 16th as The Downtown All-Stars of Red Bank held an acoustic concert in front of the legendary Jack’s Music Shoppe. The event not only raised funds and awareness for our current cause, Little Kids Rock, but continued the promotion of our compilation CD, “Bright Lights on Broad Street.”

Leading off, Jack’s patrons, outdoor diners and pedestrians were treated to the dulcet voice and deft guitar playing of Riley Schiro.
