Rehoboth Beach Museum Hosts
Acoustic Jam Night
For a blast from the past, don’t miss the Rehoboth Beach Museum’s re-creation of Acoustic Jam Night, the popular musical event held at The Front Page Restaurant & Bar from 1984 through 1993. This year’s Jam Night will be on Wednesday, July 19, 2023, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Rehoboth Beach Museum.
The Jam Night will be held in the lecture hall located on second floor.
“The Front Page was a kind of melting pot of live music in its era. It fostered a lot of different kinds of music, and gave local musicians a chance to express themselves in front of an always-supportive audience,” said Terry Plowman former owner of The Front Page.
Over the 10 years of Acoustic Jam Night, hundreds of amateur and professional musicians performed for an enthusiastic crowd every Tuesday in the summer and every Saturday in the off-season.
Original players from the Front Page era will return, including Bill Robertson, Steve Wilson, Ken Thompson and Mike Long, all members of the house band that accompanied many of the performers. Other players will include: Stuart Vining and his singing partner, Amy Felker; Walt Hetfield, music teacher at Rehoboth Elementary and a former Front Page regular; Bill Richardson, Emma Plowman, and others. Singer-songwriter Kent Schoch will serve as emcee, and will perform.
