95.9 WRAT’s 20th Anniversary Concert Series


WRAT 20th AnniversaryCoors Light is proud to present 95.9 WRAT’s 20th Anniversary Concert Series. We’re stuffing our 20th year with some great concerts and we want you to be part of each one!

Seriously, it seems like only yesterday that we pounced on the FM signal of 95.9… It’s been an awesome time ever since the first song dropped.

The best thing about our 20th Anniversary Concert Series is that each event will feature your opportunity to interact with the artists and we’ll be working out special prices or deals for each show on the list. Each show will be different… Each show will be great! Proudly supported by KRFC Design Center, Harley-Davidson of Ocean County, and Shoreline Harley-Davidson

This page will constantly be updated with cool stuff: look for a countdown clock for concert announcements and cool pictures and video of each of the shows in the series! Who knows! Maybe your picture or video will be featured. If you come to a gig and want to add your pics to the fun, just email them to 20TH@wrat.com or use the #WRAT20 on Twitter or Instagram.

Rocked It
Since Incubus came on the scene, we’ve always been huge fans of their creative approach to rock music and poetic lyrics that go far beyond the usual fodder of t-n-a (not that there’s anything wrong with that, lol).Not only that… But we’ve seen first-hand how much they care about their fans. Countless WRAT listeners have walked away from our meet-and-greets with Incubus totally blown away by how cool and down-to-earth the guys are.  Join us for this awesome Friday night, summer rock show!
