Thu, June 22, 7pm: Charlie Gracie & SB Deluxe

Charlie Gracie, returns to Disston Rec for another night of old time rock and some old time Wildwood club tunes. Charlie Gracie is one of a diminishing number of rock n roll innovators, who continues to actively perform. In 1957, Charlie's "Butterfly" topped the American and British music charts, selling over 3 million copies. His other late 50's big sellers include: "Fabulous", "Ninety-Nine Ways", "Wanderin Eyes", "I Love You So MuchIt Hurts" and "Cool Baby."

Charlie is a living legend who inspired The Beatles and has been inducted into Great Britain's Rock n Roll Hall of Fame; we are very honored to have him return for another year.

SB Deluxe, featuring two recent Tacony transplants, will also be grooving with their cool blend of rock and jazz.
