Vote For Us NOW!

We’ve been very busy trying to figure out how to move things forward.  Everyone knows you need exposure in this business! We’ve recently been the beneficiary of some hard work! Perhaps you saw in the news that Bruce Springsteen played a club date in Asbury Park. Bruce was performing with his pal Joe Grushecky. The show was organized and promoted by UMT Presents. We’ve been doing some shows with UMT and they asked us to jump on the bill at the last minute so we were fortunate to play to a packed house!

Light of Day

Hey everyone, several big shows coming up! First, Billy Walton Band | Light of Day | Wonder Bar 17th Januaryon January 17th we will be participating in the annual Light Of Day Benefit in Asbury Park. We will be part of the “Asbury Blues” show at the Wonder Bar during the afternoon. Other performers for the blues event will be Stingbean, the Tangiers Blues Band, and the Upstage Jam Band. The Light of Day Foundation, Inc., utilizes the power of music to raise money and awareness in its continuing battle to defeat Parkinson’s disease and related illnesses such as PSP and ALS within our lifetime. The Foundation’s mission is to fund research into possible cures, improved treatments and support for patients who suffer from those illnesses, their families and their caregivers to help improve their quality of life. Light of Day – the concerts and the organization – grew from a birthday party and fund-raiser held in 1998 at the Downtown Cafe in Red Bank to celebrate the 40th birthday of artist manager and music industry veteran Bob Benjamin, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1996.
