Chris Brown

When people in Asbury Park hear the name Chris Brown, only one man comes to mind.  A Folk Punk Rock fixture of the scene, He can often be found playing around the city by the sea.  As of late, an excellent place to catch a Chris Brown performance is on the roof of the Asbury Festhalle and Biergarten, which he sometimes rocks with his father Charlie Brown.  Chris released his latest EP “One More Night” earlier this year.  You can score a copy HERE.  Following his performance at Live At The Pier on 8/14, Chris will play the Asbury Park Brewery with Bryan McPherson, T.Gunn, and Chris Skel on 8/18.  Tickets are $7 and are available HERE.  Chris Brown will call in to Jersey Rock on Wednesday night at 11:30!
