Harpin' Help 2017


Harpin' Help 2016

Sunday April 23rd, Noon ~ 9pm at Bar "A"

A full afternoon of music and fun! Music starts at 12:30! Admission is $15 and two cans of non-perishible food, or food-related items (paper towels, etc) for eight (count ‘em) eight hours of music! Admission is $20 if you don't bring items.

Harpin' Help is an annual charity event organized by local musician Sandy Mack in conjunction with the Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Foundation.

The purpose of Harpin' Help is to generate some much needed funding for JSJBF, to provide some much needed food for Keyport Ministerium Food Pantry and to share some great live musical entertainment.

Bar “A” is Bar Anticipation

703-5 16th Avenue, Lake Como, NJ ~ MAP
(732) 681-7422

Many thanks to Bar "A" for hosting this event.

This year music on two stages, acoustic and electric!

All ages welcome!

Each year many of the best local, regional & national musicians donate their incredible talent to this worthy case. If the past year's shows are any indication, Harpin' Help 2015 will again be one of JSJBF's musical highlights for the entire year!

Besides 8 hours of GREAT live music,
there will be 50/50 raffles & other goodies!

Food is available for purchase at Bar A,
so you can come early and stay late!
