SOVCA Presents 2nd Annual Under Cover Music Fest

June 1, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Downtown South Orange will draw residents and visitors to its groovy summer kick-off event, Under Cover Music Fest, which features six cover bands and a bustling beer garden—plus, no cover charge. On Saturday, June 1, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. (rain date Sunday, June 2, from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m.), South Orange Village Center Alliance (SOVCA) is pleased to present the second annual Under Cover Music Fest, a free event for all ages in the heart of South Orange on Sloan Street.  World-class musicians from the area will be performing covers of the most popular hits from a collection of famous artists: Aretha Franklin (Mark Murphy’s Music Student Band: Dithmi & The Franklins), Prince (Ricky Persaud, Jr. & Crossroads), The Meters (Nation Beat), Bill Withers (Curtis Winchester Band), Dave Matthews Band (Mark Murphy and Friends) and Radiohead (Charlie Pollock and Friends).

New this year is a large beer garden (cash bar) hosted by The Fox and Falcon, which will serve beer from four local New Jersey breweries (SOMA, Carton, Asbury Park and Flounders), wine, cider, a “Flood’s Hill” specialty cocktail with tequila and delicious festival food (youth are permitted to enter, and provisions will be in place to ensure there is no under-age drinking). Kids’ activities will be provided by General Store Cooperative, which will also be selling music-centric wares from local independent stores, markers and artist.

Please note:

– No alcohol is allowed outside the beer garden. Beer garden is cash only.

– Picnics, blankets and low-profile folding chairs (no higher than 9” off the ground) are allowed on Sloan Street (outside the beer garden)

The Under Cover Music Fest stage will be located on Sloan Street near South Orange Avenue (facing the direction of the firehouse). Downtown parking will be free thanks to the South Orange Parking Authority. Track the latest news by following @SOVillageCenter on Facebook and Instagram and using #UnderCoverMusicFest
