TUSK – A Benefit Concert Hosted by Ocean County College Foundation to Benefit OCC Students

On Saturday, April 7, the Ocean County College Foundation and the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts are partnering to host the Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band: TUSK in a benefit concert to support the students of Ocean County College. For one night, only, enjoy an evening of incredible music and food as you support the mission of the Ocean County College Foundation. This special performance of TUSK will be held on the Grunin Center Main Stage, Ocean County College Main Campus, College Drive, Toms River. Proceeds will support the mission of the Ocean County College Foundation with a portion of the proceeds going to the OCC Repertory Theatre Company.

TUSK covers all the great hits of Fleetwood Mac, which featured the talents of Mick Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks. The five seasoned, well-respected musicians comprising TUSK have been making music together in various combinations and styles, in original outfits and in cover bands, for over 25 years. It seemed only fitting that they should come together to form the Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute, and pay homage to a group that dominated the charts during the band members’ formative years. Authentic-sounding and always respectful, TUSK leaves no stone unturned in replicating the sounds of one of the world’s best-loved, top-selling bands.

Concert Only: 8:00 p.m., Main Stage, $45 (orchestra and mezzanine)

VIP Reception & Concert: 6:30 pm, Black Box, $100 (includes wine, beer, gourmet hors d’oeuvres, and concert)
