Somers Point Beach Concert Series: PBS movie film crew on June 21st

The history of South Jersey music making and movies is no secret to locals and visitors alike. AND there is no richer history than Rock N' Roll in Somers Point, New Jersey. The Bay Avenue and adjoining beach areas were a music mecca in the heyday of 1940's-1950's Swing, Jazz, Blues and Rock and Roll. Legendary promoter Tony Mart made sure the bars and nightclubs in his beloved town would go down in history. In 1983, movie makers launched our sleepy yet thriving beach community of Somers Point into the national spotlight as the set for the major movie release, Eddie & The Cruisers. John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band were also launched into the national spotlight for their work on the soundtrack. Starring Tom Berenger (Born on The 4th Of July, The Big Chill, Major League) and Joe Pantoliano (The Fugitive, The Sopranos), Eddie &The Cruisers, has long put a summertime glow on beach fun and music at the Jersey Shore. Fast forward to exciting plans just announced by the Somers Point Beach Concert Series in 2024.Lights! Camera! Action! "Where Eddie Lives' a long-awaited movie sequel to the original will begin filming at the Bay Avenue beach concert on Friday June 21st.
