Where else can you enjoy live music and farm fresh eggs? Daydream Farm, of course! Tucked away in a little section of Monmouth County is a hidden gem called Daydream Farm, a local community farm that has expanded their service to provide live music in a very comfortable atmosphere. With a chair or blanket in hand, friends can gather to sit or dance on the grass and enjoy some awesome music.

Coral Moons was the opener for Ripe on Saturday. They are a four piece retro-rock band based out of Boston, MA, made up of Carly Kraft (singer-songwriter and guitarist), Justin Bartlett (lead guitarist), Manuel Camacho (bass), and Kevin O’Connell (drums and keys). They have a nostalgic flare and Carly’s soulful vocals weave perfectly through their music that is a mix of blues, soul, funk, and 60’s rock. I immediately fell in love with their song “Winnebago," which is fun and playful. The band’s debut album will be released August 6.

Coral Moons' second single, “Like We Used To” has dropped today! Click below to stream, and add to your "summer vibes" playlist! In other exciting news, Coral Moons will be performing in Levitate Fest on August 8 in Marshfield, Massachusetts!!

MELISSA LAWLOR: "I was born and raised in New Brunswick, NJ surrounded by creativity and the arts. My parents always loved listening to music, so I was exposed to an array of genres from an early age. As my own tastes developed, I found myself drawn to performers who weren’t so mainstream. It was during college, while studying art and photography, that I embraced the punk scene and spent most of my free time “going to shows.” Whether it was in a local VFW Hall, a small club in the tri-state area, or somewhere on Rutgers campus, I was usually there with a camera. I became involved with local bands, working on photo shoots and designing artwork for them. After receiving my BFA in graphic design, I moved in the direction of publishing while always keeping an interest in photography. I currently live in Freehold, NJ and although concert photography still remains my favorite, I also like to incorporate portrait and wildlife work as well. Asbury Park has practically become a second home to me, and to this day you’ll still find me, whether working or in the audience, 'going to shows."
