***UPDATE: Originally scheduled for July 18, the event has been rescheduled for August 12.***

A “Message In A Bottle” will wash up on the shore of the Hudson River on August 12, as over 40 musicians unite on the Hoboken Waterfront to celebrate the music of Sting.

Presented by ALEOproductions—the creative machine behind the David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Paul Simon and other phenomenal musical engagements in Hoboken & Jersey City—each song will feature a different blend of musicians, with the intention of allowing them to interact with each other musically.

“I chose Sting because in doing Paul Simon last year, there was a lack of tunes for the girls in our crew to really open up their voices, since Paul’s tunes are in a very low register,” says Jaime DeJesus, of ALEOproductions. “With Sting and the Police, they are able to really sing in their sweet spots. This was the main reason. Also, Sting’s tunes are very smart and intricate. The musicians in our community have been leaning the same way in their own compositions as well, so Sting seems to fit the mood of this year’s “song” that is being sung all over town.”

Sting (a.k.a. Gordon Sumner) got his break with the seminal New Wave rock band The Police, and of course continued to achieve artistic success on his own.

“I have always viewed The Police as a Punk/Reggae fusion,” says DeJesus. “I think the fundamental difference with Sting’s solo stuff is that he added more complex chord changes and melodies that left that genre and reflected his mental and physical evolution. It’s a beautiful thing—it’s the entire point—when an artist creates images of the ineffable stuff through his/her own vessel (body/mind/spirit). For the Sinatra Park gig, there will be mainly Sting solo stuff, accentuated with some of The Police tunes that I feel illustrates his message. However, for the people who are missing The Police stuff, I am putting on a performance of only Police music across the street at House of ‘Que right after the Sinatra Park show.”
