George Benson is ready to give New Jersey the night.
Benson, the Grammy Award-winning singer and guitarist, will hit the Jersey Shore this summer with a Sunday, Aug. 14, performance as part of Seaside Heights beach concert series.
The show represents a homecoming of sorts for Benson, a Pittsburgh native who lived in Englewood for many years.
“Jersey is very important to me,” said Benson, 79. “They kept me alive playing my music because they always had some kind of place to play.”
Benson’s musical history in New Jersey stretches from tavern to theaters — and now the beach.
