September is National Recovery Month.

The non profit organization New Jersey Recovery Advocates will be holding a FREE, inclusive, family friendly Recovery Walk and Rally on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Liberty State Park. Join us for a community concert with vendors and a banner contest. This event will serve to:

1. Educate the public
2. Provide hope and inspiration to those struggling with the disease of addiction;
3. Demonstrate and celebrate the miraculous, yet attainable, reality of recovery in our community;
4. Eliminate the isolation, shame, stigma and discrimination which form thick walls keeping individuals and families from healthy living.
5. Empower individuals and families to seek freedom from the bonds of addiction by embracing the healing available to them in their own communities.
The Motor City Revue: Motor City Revue: Capturing the Distinct Motown Sound A little more than half a century ago, a new sound took shape in and around Detroit that revolutionized the music industry. Today, the all-star Motor City Revue faithfully recreates that signature Motown sound…and, in the process, takes audiences on a journey back in time to where it all began.

Although there are many bands that cover Motown tunes, few strive to match the vocal harmonies and instrumental mix that distinguished the original recordings. Motor City Revue was formed to offer music lovers an authentic tribute to the artists and songs that defined a generation.

Vocalist Layonne Holmes (member of Tim McLoone and the Shirleys and Bob Bandiera's Jersey Shore Rock 'n' Soul Revue) and Bassist/Musical Director Gerald Carboy (of David Sancious & Tone and Barry Miles & Silverlight fame) enlisted some of Jersey's A-list musicians to respectfully pay homage to this world renowned sound.

Band members include: Lead vocalists: Ricky Collins and Layonne Holmes Bass: Gerald Carboy Guitar/vocals: Ralph Notaro Keyboards/vocals: Arne Wendt Drums/percussion: David Anthony Tenor sax: Rick Brunermer

Motor City Revue will have you dancing and singing along to the songs immortalized by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, The Supremes and countless others.
