POINT PLEASANT BEACH – Clarence “Nick” Clemons III of NCB Productions is celebrating the Big Man’s legacy at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, during the Official Clemons Family Celebration being held at Martell’s Tiki Bar on the boardwalk.
The special night honors the late Clarence “Big Man” Clemons on the official, New Jersey-designated Clarence Clemons Day on what would have been his 72nd birthday. The event will take the audience back to the early ‘80s to the nightclub, Big Man’s West in Red Bank, owned by Clarence Clemons. This year’s event will feature “Big Man’s West” regulars, including John Cafferty and Michael “Tunes” Antunes of the Beaver Brown Band; JoBonanno & the Godsons of Soul; Gary Bangs; DJ Lee Mrowicki; former Red Bank Rockers, including JT Bowen and Jack Scarangella and other surprises.
The Nick Clemons Band also will perform. The evening’s emcee will be WFAS-AM’s “Orlando in the Morning,” Brian Anthony.
“I will continue to work to preserve the legacy of the Big Man and Big Man’s West and this event will give fans an opportunity to show their love for Clarence Clemons and relive the magic that was Big Man’s West for a night,” Nick Clemons said.
Tickets are $25 and include a full buffet from 7 to 10 p.m. and birthday cake. There will be drink specials at this 21-and-older event.
Proceeds will benefit NCB Charities’ Big Man Fund, which helps supplement arts funding in schools. The fund was created by Clarence “Nick” Clemons III, the oldest son of Clarence, in memory of his legendary father.
