Croft Farm Rock Fest ’13 tomorrow
Cherry Hill Township and Room Two Productions will team up to host Croft Farm Rockfest ’13, a free outdoor music festival, at Historic Croft Farm on June 8.
The concert will feature seven bands and will be filmed for television and broadcast to celebrate the 19th anniversary of Inside Music Today.
Featured bands include No Commitment, a Cherry-Hill based band that has been on a strong run of late.
The band was nominated this year by the Jersey JAM Awards as the Best Under 21 Band in New Jersey and their debut album Hiding What is Underneath (iTunes) was nominated as the Best Under 18 Album by a New Jersey artist.
They will be headlining the fireworks celebrations in Medford and Cherry Hill and will also be appearing at Great Adventure and Hershey Park this summer.
But the Croft Farm Rockfest is a special event for the band because it gives them the opportunity to share the stage with their peers. According to lead singer Zach Birnbaum, a Cherry Hill West sophomore and American Idol Season 12 Hollywood Week contestant, “We love getting together and jamming with other bands our age and rocking out! We are especially psyched to have everybody in our hometown, where we can share our music with people local and from all over New Jersey.”
In addition to local favorites No Commitment, the festival lineup will also include up-and-coming bands If All Else Fails, Volt and Half Daze.
Rounding out the bill will be three accomplished local bands, Dr. Lou and the Privileged Few, The Count Josephine Band, and The Defused.
The festival will be broadcast throughout the summer on IMT, which runs every Saturday night at midnight on WMCN (Atlantic City/Philadelphia) and reaches 2.1 million households in the Delaware Valley, including Cherry Hill subscribers of Comcast, Verizon Fios, DISH Network, and DirecTV.
Food and bathroom facilities will be available on site. Vendors are welcome to contact Gretchen O’Brien at IMT about sponsorship opportunities.
Lawn chairs and blankets are welcome.
Smoking and alcohol are prohibited in all Cherry Hill Township park locations.
The concert will start at 2:00 p.m.
