Julio Fernandez and Friends Close Out Hoboken Sinatra Park Outdoor Concert Series with a Stellar Funktastic Performance

Julio Fernandez and Friends Hoboken Sinatra Park 8-22-2013

Last night, Hoboken’s Outdoor concert series in Sinatra Park came to and end with a stellar performance from Julio Fernandez and friends. Julio Fernandez who is the lead guitarist for jazz fusion band Spyro Gyra and who spent a good deal of his formative years in Hoboken was back this year for his annual concert. Julio played a varied set that included works of Jimmy Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Carlos Santana, Stevie Wonder, Sly and the Family Stone, Tower of Power and even James Brown.

This year the band consisted of Julio Fernandez (guitars and vocals, Tom Bowes (vocals), Benny Harrison (keys & vocals), Richie Cannata (sax), Gene Perez (bass), Rocky Bryant (drums) and Rafael Cruz (percussion). Collectively these guys have worked with Tower of Power, Average White Band, Billy Joel, Willie Colon, The Rascals, and Spyro Gyra. The performance was energetic and had the audience tapping their feet and even some brave souls up and dancing.

Kudos to Julio Fernandez, his stellar band, The Burgiss Group for sponsoring this event, Mayor Dawn Zimmer, Geri Fallo and the City of Hoboken for hosting this as well. You have to love a city like Hoboken where you can see such amazing talent for free. Until next summer….

Video highlights and photos are below…..

Editor’s Note: If you could only see one free concert in the Park at Sinatra Park this Summer this would be the one concert to see. With the quality of musicianship on display it is very hard to believe that this event is free. Julio Fernandez and his numerous musical freinds never fail to put on a great display of music of a variety of styles of music.
