It’s my essential basic blink of an eye the day before New Years’ Eve as I reminisce the evolution of Annual Big Man’s Birthday Bash and other matters of special sentimentality. Our NJ Discover crew/family has been at all four prior Bash’s. I remember the first one in Asbury Park when we magically worked the red carpet interviewing the musicians and celebs, so loyal and devoted to Clarence, his memory and cultural impact. The void of loss has been dramatic and enduring. How special it has been to remember the Big Man in this way, honoring his birthday and bringing the essence of Jersey talent together for one rocking electric eclectic night of music.

It has become that winter highlight of revelry and music along the Jersey shore; something we all look forward to and thank the Clemons’ Family and Big Road Productions for bringing it all together. Yes, it seems only in Jersey along the shore at Bar A; a cacophony of Jersey iconic symbols. This year’s musical lineup is nirvana.  Enough said. See you there on January 7th. Happy Birthday Big Man!!

THE 5th ANNUAL BIG MAN’S BIRTHDAY BASH AT BAR ANTICIPATION ON JANUARY 7, 2017

Lake Como, NJ – On January 7, 2017, the Jersey Shore celebrates the birthday of
the late and legendary, Clarence Clemons, with THE 5th ANNUAL BIG MAN’S BIRTHDAY BASH at Bar Anticipation in Lake Como, NJ. The event presents a historic gathering of All-Star, legendary musicians and will benefit CFC Loud N Clear and TOPAC (The Overdose Prevention Agency Corporation), both recognized 501(c)(3), non-profit organizations that support those addicted to drugs.

This year’s 5th Anniversary show, which runs all day and night, will feature headliners:

 The show, which kicks off at 2:00 p.m. (full line-up below) and is expected to run until 1:00 a.m., will also feature guest jams and artist collaborations that are a long-time tradition at the Shore.

Nick Clemons states, “My father always taught me to ‘give back’ and remember the less fortunate. I try to do that and CFC Loud N Clear and TOPAC do great work at a time that New Jersey still has its worst heroin epidemic ever.”

This is the 5th year that Clemons and his team have produced the Birthday Bash. Co-producer/Terry Camp of BIG RoaD is an attorney and long-time member of the Jersey Shore music community. He recalled, “When Clarence passed, Wonder Bar in Asbury Park hosted the Sensational Soul Cruisers and The Nick Clemons Band for a memorial show in July 2011. Bruce was kind enough to join us that epic night and we’ve been building on it since – selling out Wonder Bar in December 2012, packing Martell’s in Point Pleasant January 2014, and the last two years at Bar Anticipation. The show gets bigger and bigger every year – and for the 5th Annual Bash, we’ve secured this incredible line-up.”

BIG RoaD’s Jesse Warren lost his brother, Scott Warren, to a heroin overdose on March 26th, 2015. Warren states, “The heroin addiction crisis in Monmouth and Ocean Counties has been building for many years and has, unfortunately, received national note. We are all responsible to keep the issue front and center in our communities.”

Bash details and frequent updates are at the Facebook Event page:

Doors open at 1:00 p.m. and live music begins at 2:00 p.m. The show is expected to end by 1:00 a.m. Tickets are $45 Advance and $60 Day of Show. They may be purchased on line at:

The BIG RoaD All-Star Band
Created by Terry Camp and Jesse Warren from an August 13, 2015 40th Anniversary “Born to Run” show, this 10-piece, BIG All-Star band is backed by the best of the Jersey Shore including former Asbury Jukes, current (Jon Bon Jovi and the Kings of Suburbia members, and many local and national musicians and featured vocalists.

About CFC Loud N Clear
From the Family of Mark and Lynn Regan: CFC Loud N Clear was developed in light of our family’s personal journey through addiction. In 2012 after many Intensive Outpatient Programs, several in-patient treatment centers and years of an uphill battle, we discovered the gaps in the system and realized a need for diverse programs of extended after care. Daniel Regan developed an after-care system for himself with the help of his mother, Lynn Regan. After a while, people started to want to know how they did it and wanted a recovery plan set up for themselves. The family decided from that point that everyone deserves access to an after-care program and they created CFC Loud N Clear. The first year after treatment is the most crucial year in someone’s recovery. CFC will help guide you through your first year and beyond. CFC Loud N Clear believes in providing many roads to recovery, thus giving our members many positive, proven options that resonate with them. We also recognized the need for safe, sober socialization and created a social calendar filled with fun, laugh-inducing activities. Daniel and Lynn Regan are highly involved in the field of prevention and saw the importance of giving back and preventing others from going down the wrong road. Thus, CFC got its name, Coming Full Circle. We are proudly more than just a recovery program. CFC provides services for Prevention, Intervention and Recovery with a seamless integration of the three, making it a full circle.http://www.healingus.org/
