Free Concert and Fireworks Friday, September 5

The grand opening of Burlington County’s Amphitheater on Friday, September 5th, will resemble a Hollywood premiere with red carpet, ribbon cutting, fireworks, food and music by Grey Eye Glances.

The Board of Chosen Freeholders will kick-off this free event at 7 p.m. The amphitheater is located off Woodlane Road in the County Complex, next to the library. Rain date is Sunday, Sept. 7.

“ We are excited to celebrate the opening of this beautiful, open-air venue that will provide free or low-cost entertainment to be enjoyed by residents of all ages for years to come,” said Freeholder Director William S. Haines, Jr. “We will be focusing on a variety of family-oriented programs with an emphasis on our county’s culture and heritage.”

Grey Eye Glances, which took its name from an Edgar Allen Poe poem, is a folk rock group comprised of original band members, Jennifer Nobel (vocals, 12-string guitar), Dwayne Keith (vocals, piano, keyboard) and Eric O’Dell (vocals, bass guitar), joined by guitarist, Brett Kull and drummer, Paul Ramsey.

Having embarked on their musical career by using Border bookstores as a venue, the band members creatively formed a limited partnership with fans to help finance their latest album, “A Little Voodoo,” which was a collaborative effort using several producers and engineers. The album has had play time on XM, Music Choice, DMX1, WXPN, and one of the album’s tracks was featured on the “Dawson's Creek” TV show.

As Grey Eye Glances’ fan base has widened so has its scope of venues, which now includes Katmandu, the TLA, The Tin Angel and most recently, the singer/songwriter weekend in Philadelphia. The band has also toured nationally.

The amphitheater has a seating capacity of 500. Concert goers are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets, although stone ledges are available for seating.

Gates open at 6 p.m. and parking is free. Refreshments will be available for sale. No alcohol, pets, coolers or glass containers are permitted.
