DANTE HALL THEATER // 7:30 P.M. SATURDAY, AUG. 12
WHAT IS IT: Originated in 2015 to coincide with the 50tj anniversary of Bob Dylan’s collaboration with Levon & The Hawks in Somers Point, Dylan Fest is a celebration of the music, art and legacy of the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer. The event features live music from the Dylan tribute band The 5 Believers and a special guest performance from Gary Solomon of The Band. In addition to the concert, the event features a pre-show art and wine party at the Noyes Arts Garage.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Dylan Fest will bring it all back home on Saturday with a show at Dante Hall. The 5 Believer’s live performance of the 1983 album “Infidels” is one of the many highlights of an evening that includes music from Gary Solomon, Just Like the Women and Watson & Shocket. WZXL’s Steve Raymond will be on hand to emcee the event and play Dylan’s music. Food and drinks from Ducktown Tavern, memorabilia, wine tasting and an exhibit of new and original Dylan-themed artwork called “Desolation Row” will make for the ultimate evening for any Dylan enthusiast.
WHAT’S NEW: The third annual Dylan Fest AC will feature a guest performance from The Band’s Gary Solomon.
