It’s official! One of the Jersey Shore's most iconic musicians will be honored annually and every January 11th will be known as Clarence Clemons Day in NJ. The NJ Senate passed a resolution that memorializes the legendary saxophonist from Bruce Springsteen's E-Street Band. Clemons was a founding member of the E-Street Band, playing with the group from its inception in 1972 until his death in 2011. The Clemons family is planning to celebrate the first annual Clarence Clemons Day in style on Jan 12 with a benefit at the Wonder Bar. The beneficiary will be the music departments from Point Pleasant Beach HS and Bay Head School that have lost instruments and supplies in Hurricane Sandy.

On the show will be Nick Clemons and music teacher Emma Fretz of Bay Head School and Musical Director of Point Pleasant Beach HS. Nick and Emma will share how this fundraiser came together and the importance of music programs for kids. The Bay Head School had 7 ft of water in the music room and all equipment was lost to the storm. The funds from this benefit will literally rebuild the music program.. And the Point Pleasant Beach HS lost out on their largest fundraising opportunity of the year due to Sandy and desperately needs funding to continue their music program.

Come celebrate The Big Man’s Birthday Benefit at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park. This is going to be an exciting night of live entertainment which will directly benefit our Jersey Shore community. There is a great lineup of musicians including Nick Clemons Band, Woodfish, Marc Ribler, Jobanno and The Godsons, and Steve Smith and the Nakeds.
