Fabulous Greaseband kicks off summer with an eclectic playlist At The Shore Today


The Fabulous Greaseband rocks Wildwood Crest

What Is it: They have party rockers in the house tonight at Centennial Park in Wildwood Crest. The Fabulous Greaseband, a longtime staple of the party scene along the Jersey Shore and East Coast, comes to play tonight at the town's annual Summer Kickoff Concert - free.

What To Expect: This seven-piece band has been at it for more than 30 years, playing lots of numbers - the Greaseband likes to call itself the "Best of the '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s rock 'n' roll party band." And although some of those numbers are later additions, this band is a well-rehearsed machine that plays more than 200 shows per year and is always a favorite in the Crest.
