CLOSTER, N.J. -- Closter Recreation's series of five free concerts kicks off this Friday, June 17, with a performance by Marc Berger and Ride.

Here's a Steven Ha review of the band:

Marc Berger and Ride bring a well choreographed mix of deep country folk songs with touches of bluegrass, roots, Americana, a little spicy Cajun and even a little indie with an effects-laced lead acoustic guitar. It's near impossible to sit through a set without feeling a musical kinship to something in every song, even if it's just the basic joy of watching a well seasoned band rip through every song as if it was the final number of their farewell tour.

"We encourage adults and kids to come with their blankets and chairs and enjoy a night under the stars listening to some great music," organizers note. The snack stand will also be open.

The event will run from 7:30-9 p.m., at the Closter Lions Bandshell, located at Memorial Field, in Closter. In case of inclement weather, call 201-750-9507 for updates.
