Free fireworks show at Revel
What Is It: Atlantic City's Revel Casino-Hotel has lit up the sky several times this season already with Friday-night fireworks. The city's newest casino continues that tradition tonight with a 9:30 blastoff for its last scheduled fireworks display of the summer.
What To Expect: The show is produced by the Grucci family, one of the top names in fireworks. And if you go to Revel, in the South Inlet, you'll find that this isn't just rockets blasting into the sky: The electronically fired shells are choreographed with musical accompaniment, and the glass-covered building also lights up with the fireworks' reflections.
Event Info: The show starts 9:30 p.m. at Revel, 500 Boardwalk, Atlantic City. For more details, call 855-348-0500.
Springsteen alum Vini Lopez rocks Somers Point
What Is It: Vini "Mad Dog" Lopez was the original drummer in Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band. The two parted ways years ago, but Lopez is still playing, and he brings his current band, License to Chill, to the bayside beach in Somers Point tonight for a free concert.
What To Expect: License to Chill likes to cover some big names and show fans a good time by playing everything from Jimmy Buffett to lots of classic rock favorites to songs that Lopez recorded with The Boss on Springsteen's first two albums - which are classics themselves.
Event Info: Showtime is 7 p.m. at the William Morrow Municipal Beach, at Bay and New Jersey avenues, Somers Point. Free. For more details and all future concerts, see somerspointbeachconcerts.com.
