New Jersey/New York roots rocker Joe D’Urso has announced that he will host the first-ever Rockland-Bergen Music Festival on the borders of Rockland and Bergen counties in Tappan, New York on June 29. The single-day festival will host 22 roots artists on two stages, including Willie Nile, Marshall Crenshaw and more.
In addition to the music, Rockland-Bergen will offer local food and beverage vendors like Jack Ford, Tequila Sal y Limon, Denise Marie Catering, and Sixpoint Beer.

As a major proponent of charity and board member of several charities, D’Urso will donate a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales to benefit WHYHunger, Light of Day, Homes For Heroes, Dan Sullivan Foundation, the Volunteer Fire Association of Tappan, Orangetown Auxillary Police, and the Rockland County Widows & Orphans Fund.

Advance tickets go on sale tomorrow for $42. Tickets can also be purchased on the day of the event for $50, or $20 with a high school or college ID. Admission is free to all children 12 and under, as well as to anyone born in 1964, the same year as D’Urso. Parking is also free, but a donation of $5 to WHYHunger/Light of Day is suggested.
