The genius of Mason Jennings' music is its honesty: Only the very young or very courageous can afford to be so frank about themselves and the world. Still, after eleven albums, Jennings continues to be true to his experience, crafting songs that are equally striking and simple. No wonder this indie-troubadour sold 30,000 copies of his first two albums without a big label or P.R. push -- the music sold itself. Now, years later and with a loyal cult following, Jennings is touring the country in support of his latest effort, the critically lauded Always Been. While building on Jennings' rugged, acoustic early work, the album explores sunnier melodies and inspiring love songs. Watch this earnest and soulful artist perform live at the South Orange Performing Arts Center. Learn More

It was a fantastic show - full of energy and Angelique's special warmth. She is a ball of energy with an incredible voice and a knack for including her audience in the joy her music brings. Her voice is clear and sharp and strong and her repertoire full of high energy, upbeat music.
SOPAC was a special surprise - intimate, comfortable, a good sound system and acoustics and although iI drove, it's literally AT the train station and an easy commute from Manhattan. Great sports bar/Italian place on the corner for a drink and a bite before or after a show.
