LIGHT OF DAY // CONCERT SERIES
Asbury Park, NJ

 

LIGHT OF DAY
Bob Benjamin, ein Musiker und Manager aus New Jersey, erkrankte im Jahre 1996 an der Parkinson Krankheit. Zwei Jahre später entschloss sich Benjamin, mit Freunden eine gemeinnützige Stiftung ins Leben zu rufen und Spendengelder für Betroffene und Angehörige einzusammeln. 
Im November 2000 fand im legendären "Stone Pony" in Asbury Park, NJ das erste "Light of Day Festival" statt. Unter anderem spielten ortsansässige Bands sowie Joe Grushecky & the Houserockers. Bruce Springsteen kündigte sein Kommen an und sorgte dafür, dass das Festival ein grosser Erfolg wurde.
In den Jahren 2001 und 2002 zog die Show ins inzwischen abgerissene "Tradewinds" nach Sea Bright, NJ um. Doch schon ein Jahr später siedelte das "Light of Day Festival" wieder nach Asbury Park, NJ um.

Seit 2004 unterstützt die "Light of Day" Stiftung folgende Organisationen:

 
Alle aufgeführten Organisationen erforschen die Parkinson Krankheit. Ausserdem wurden die "Light of Day" Konzerte ab 2005 auch auf andere Länder ausgeweitet. Mittlerweile finden auch in Kanada, England, Spanien, Italien und Deutschland Konzerte statt.

Bruce Springsteen veröffentlichte auf seiner Homepage folgende Nachricht:
I want to wish Bob Benjamin, all of the musicians, and all my friends who are attending the Light of Day shows in Asbury Park the very best for a great weekend of concerts. Bob’s Light of Day series is not only an important fundraiser but also one of the best weekends of the year for music in Asbury. I always love making my guest spot with Joe, but will be away with family this weekend, and so just wanted to give a shout out to Bob, Joe and all the musicians who make it such a great night.
