Big Man’s Blast

Asbury Park & Atlantic City • June 18

Family and friends of the late Clarence Clemons, an iconic member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, began a craft beer startup called Big Man’s Brew to honor the man with the big sound on tenor sax. Now they are honoring the 10th anniversary of his passing with a special event. The tribute will take place at both the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City and The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, with performances by Clemons’ youngest son, Jarod, and his band, The Late Nights, as well as The Livesays. The event will be live-streamed for fans, and at 10 pm EDT, there will be a special toast for the larger-than-life music legend. Check the Facebook page for more information.
