July 4th at the Oval is always a great time for families, friends and neighbors to celebrate Independence day. This year, it will be extra special when the town welcomes the EPICSOUL Band to the main stage just prior to fireworks finale.
EPICSOUL, lead by Livingston resident Joe Burach, is an 11 piece R&B and Soul band featuring two male and two female singers and a dynamic horn section. Burach, a Berklee College Of Music alumni, leads a talented group that includes musicians who have toured with Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Sting & the Police and Jay and The Americans.
Livingston residents will recognize the band’s bass player, Livingston High School’s music technology teacher Amedeo Ciminnisi who has played with South Side Johnny and the Asbury Jukes.
EPIC SOUL entertains crowds with classic soul hits, Motown medleys, pop and dance tunes that get crowds off their feet. What the band is best known for is surprising audiences with songs they knew and loved and haven’t heard in years . The EPICSOUL Band has and continues to perform at Harrahs & the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City, Giants Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, Prudential Center in Newark, Cove Heaven and Paradise Stream Entertainment Resorts in the Poconos, corporate events, and weddings throughout the tri-state area. Most recently the band performed in the Rainbow Room at the “top of the rock” at Rockefeller Center NBC Studios in New York City.
“We had such a great time performing in the Beer Garden at last year’s July 4th celebration that we were thrilled to be asked to perform on the main stage this year. We can’t wait to perform for all of our friends and neighbors in town,” said Joe.
EPIC SOUL plans to take the main stage at 7:45 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4.
