This year’s Fall fest should take on a Sunday Funday Summer feel, as temps will be pretty warm—with highs in the upper 80’s.
It should get hotter still, when singers Christina Alessi, Jaime DellaFave, Sylvana Joyce, Carolyn Monroe, and Casey Solomon take the stage for an encore performance of their heavy-hitting Queens of Soul show.
“These five girls have such incredible voices and self-expression. And they are, so joyfully, five very different singers,” says ALEO Productions’ Jaime De Jesus. “This show is a great avenue for each of them to shine and be seen by the greater Hoboken audience.”
Backing up this powerful pentaverate will be the Sun Dogs Orchestra, featuring:
Ty Tuschen – guitar
Jaime DeJesus – bass
Johnny Roccessano – drums
Jim Bell – trumpet
Matt Lepek – tenor sax
Jeremy Hunt – baritone sax
Ben Krupit – trombone/flute/percussion
Stay hydrated… it’s gonna be sultry.
