ROCKIT'S WOODSTOCK & THE AGE OF AQUARIUS and the FIRST-EVER BASIE VANGUARD AWARDS
August 22 • 7PM
Presented by: Count Basie Theatre
This special summertime Rockit! performance won’t just honor the music of Woodstock and the ‘Age Of The Aquarius,’ but it will also serve as the setting for the Count Basie Theatre to present its first-ever Vanguard Awards to recognize a lifetime of devotion towards the arts here in New Jersey. Our inaugural Vanguard recipients are Maureen and Steven Van Zandt, Monmouth County Freeholder Lillian Burry and Monmouth County Arts Council Executive Director Mary Eileen Fouratt.
Rockit!’s A Tribute to Woodstock & The Age Of The Aquarius performance will honor both the music of Woodstock and sounds inspired by that era, and will be curated with input from Mr. Van Zandt himself. Opening the evening will be Rockit!’s “Age Of The Aquarius” set, a tribute to the music of the late 1960s. Immediately following the first set, VIP ticket holders will have the chance to meet honorees Maureen and Steven Van Zandt during an intermission reception. The second half of the evening will concentrate solely on songs performed at Woodstock itself, and will be introduced by Mr. and Mrs. Van Zandt following their receipt of the Vanguard.

“I Will Survive” was recorded in 1978 as Gloria Gaynor’s tale of personal strength, and the smash hit soon become the greatest disco anthem of all time. In 1979, “I Will Survive” climbed to the top of Billboard ’s Pop Charts and claimed the #1 position on two different occasions. Little did Gloria know, the song would grow into the banner for social survival which is still relevant after three decades of international airplay. 2014 marks the 35th Anniversary of the song, which itself has survived in various forms and has been re-recorded over 200 times by various artists such as Chantay Moore, Diana Ross and Cake.

David Gray (“Babylon,” “This Year’s Love,” “Please Forgive Me”) has established himself as one of the UK’s leading music artists both at home and overseas. Gray’s commercial success is also backed up by a critical consensus and countless accolades. His 2009 release Draw The Line was met with critical praise and garnered the artist a series of high profile television appearances, as well as two sold out tours of the US. Foundling, Gray's 9th studio album picked up where Draw the Line left off and created a new chapter of lush, soulful songs that found the artist returning to his folk music roots.
The October 4th date is part of David’s first full U.S. tour in four years.
