Musical acts:

  • Camden Pop Rock– Established in 2015 as part of the famous Camden 3rd Thursday Art Crawl, CamdenpopRock has become a fixture of Camden Culture, drawing Camden County residents from far and wide who wish to experience the wondrously eclectic fusion of modern, classical and international music and performance art. http://www.camdenpoprock.com/
  • TJP (The Jost Project)– TJP will present a PEACE AND LOVE Concert, presenting music from their new CD of the same name with such songs as “America” by Simon & Garfunkel, “Put a Little Love in Your Heart”, “Get Together”, “America the Beautiful” and many others. Their CD “Can’t Find My Way Home” (Dot Time Records) is played regularly on Sirius XM radio and has audiences raving about their unexpected interpretations of this music. They are reaching into the “baby boomer” and subsequent generations who came of age with rock and roll, the Beatles, hard rock, and other genres which are rarely played by jazz groups.

  • Matt Butler– Matt Butler first gained notoriety as the lead singer of the New York based band Reckless Sons, who released two EPs, the latter with legendary record producer David Kahne (Lana Del Ray, The Strokes, Sublime, Paul McCartney).  The turning point in Butler’s career came, however, when he confronted his lifelong struggle with alcoholism and substance abuse.  After getting sober, Butler recorded his debut solo album Reckless Son, a poignant confession of his battle with addiction and his inspiring path to recovery.  Right from the start, Butler was able to pull together a community around his message and crowd fund the entire project through a successful Pledge Music Campaign. Butler wrote and performed ‘Just One’, the original song for the feature length and nationally distributed documentary Generation Found.  The film portrays the devastating effect the current drug and opiate epidemic has had on adolescents in and around Houston, TX, and the unprecedented way in which the community has rallied to support them. http://mattbutlerofficial.com/
