(ASBURY PARK, NJ) —“Danny Coleman’s Rock On Radio” will celebrate 10 years of covering the music scene with a “10th Anniversary Celebration Bash” on April 24, 2019 at The Asbury Hotel located at 210 5th Avenue in Asbury Park, NJ. The night will include performances by Radio Fiction, The Williamsboy, Dave Vargo, John Alberici, Strumberry Pie, and The Jo Wymer Band. Admission is free.
“Rock On Radio” debuted on April 26, 2009 on WIFI 1460 AM Radio in Burlington County, NJ as a one hour weekly program featuring interviews and live performances largely by unsigned independent artists, bands and entertainers.
The popularity of the program grew quickly and so did its length; expanding to a full two hours causing Coleman to abandon terrestrial radio for the vast audience of internet broadcasting resulting in syndication in the US, the UK and Canada.
As the show’s audience increased, national artists began part of the focus as well. Performers such as John Oates, comedian Louie Anderson, Steve Hackett, the late Peter Tork and many more have called into the program and interacted with Coleman and his guests; offering insight, advice and amusing anecdotes.
What was started out of necessity quickly became a passion connecting Coleman to music communities the world over. A musician, entertainment journalist, emcee and radio personality who has been called a, “media triple threat” who “has no agenda” appreciates those who give him their time and talent and does his best to create a comfortable outlet where they can be themselves and showcase their creativity.
Over the past decade “Rock On Radio” and Coleman himself have been nominated for multiple Asbury Music Awards, supported various charities and engaged more than 500 guests in a style that was called, “friendly, relaxing and very comfortable” by a prominent Philadelphia radio personality and former guest of the show.
The “10th Anniversary Celebration Bash” is a free admission event from 8:00pm-11:00pm. and is sponsored by Brian Erick, New Jersey Stage Magazine, Makin Waves, City of Angels NJ and Carousel Arts NJ.
“Rock On Radio” airs Sunday evenings at 7:00pm (EST) from the Hightstown studios of City of Angels Radio on www.COARadio.com and www.societybytesradio.com .
Danny Coleman also writes a weekly column entitled “Rock On…” which appears every Thursday at NewJerseyStage.com — the column regularly interviews local and national artists, reviews releases, and provides a list of upcoming shows in the area.
