Like the aging of a fine wine, James Taylor and Jackson Browne showed fans at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center on Aug 24th that years of experience most definitely lead to musical perfection.

The dynamic duo played to a packed house where practically every seat in the amphitheater was filled and not one inch of grass was left on the lawn. Both Browne and Taylor effortlessly moved through their individual sets which were jam-packed with many of their greatest hits. The two Rock and Roll Hall of Famers joined each other in song during Browne’s “Pretender” and Taylor’s “Take It Easy.” The crowd sang and danced the night away and a general sense of peace and comfort settled in over Saratoga Spa State Park, the home for the Performing Arts Center.

After her first visit to Asbury Park, she immediately fell in love with its music community and recognized the need for a Jersey Shore publication to highlight the accomplishments of local and national musicians through photos and press. Asbury Park Vibes has been her labor of love ever since, along with her Golden Retriever – Cooper – who you’ll often see walking Diane through the streets of Asbury.
