While listening to the radio, Jon Caspi heard a story about a tribute party for a singer-songwriter that recently died. His local music scene came together for a night of performances to pay homage to him which entailed performers each singing one of their fallen mate’s tunes. Caspi thought it sad that the deceased performer missed out on what would have certainly been a memorable and moving night for him. “That’s when I thought, I don’t want to miss out on a night like that. I should do this now, before we are dead.” This story inspired the idea to throw a ‘we pay tribute to us’ party.

To be clear, no one is dying or had died. The idea arose while the band was planning their release party for a new album called Hanging Around. It will be the band’s fourth release and the second on Brighton Bar Records. They invited some friends to play on the lineup, requiring that they each perform at least one Jon Caspi & The First Gun tune.

The tribute party is taking place on Saturday April 25th at the Asbury Park Yacht Club, located on the boardwalk in Asbury Park. All are invited and there will be no cover charge to get in. Also performing are New Jersey favorites The Extras, Inc., Humongous, and Tri-State (acoustic), and an upcoming young band from Delaware called The Bomb Shelter Dropouts.
