ASBURY PARK – Democrats and Republicans may be dancing today on the edge of the “fiscal cliff” in Washington, D.C., but their Monmouth County counterparts danced together, drank together, and got things done at the legendary Stone Pony, raising more than $100,000 for Hurricane Sandy relief at a bipartisan blowout that drew over 1,000 locals to the famed music venue.
The Monmouth County Democratic Organization, the Monmouth County Republican Committee and the New Leaders Council NJ teamed up to sponsor the relief concert, emceed by NJ 101.5’s Kevin McArdle. An array of classic Jersey Shore bar bands, including the B Street Band, The Pat Roddy Band, Joe Orlando and the Cryers, Vinny Pastore and the Crazy Horse Band and Back Up Jackson, rocked the house.
The New Jersey Young Republicans and the New Jersey Young Democrats also sponsored the fundraiser. All proceeds raised at the event were donated to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
