February 4, 2021 - Asbury Sunset Presents has announced a series of live stream music performances called "The Watermark Series" which will take place each Saturday between February 6 and March 13, 2021.

Asbury Sunset Presents is an Asbury Park not-for-profit company started by city resident Tim Cabrey. He created the company in response to the pandemic so that local musicians would have opportunities to present their music in COVID-safe outdoor spaces in 2020. The events highlight and provide exposure for these musicians, and generate donations for local non-profits as well!  Asbury Sunset Presents also partnered with The Asbury Park Toy Drive in a “Shop Local” initiative last December in matching gifts for every locally purchased toy.

"The Watermark Series" will take place each Saturday at 5pm. Asbury Park Presents will stream performances of local New Jersey artists live from Watermark on Asbury Park’s Boardwalk. Each Show is a ‘closed set’ stream, with 6 guests in attendance who will be chosen at random through submissions via email to AsburySunsetPresents@Gmail.com or via their donations (of any amount) to support the musicians and participating non-profits. (See complete contest rules here.) Donations can be submitted via Venmo @Asbury-Sunset-Presents or PayPal @AsburySunsetPresents. No contribution is required for a chance to win.

All COVID safety protocols will be in effect including taking the temperature of any artist or guest in the building, requiring participants to wear masks, and following proper social distancing guidelines.

Audio and Video Production will be provided by Cooper Davis of Super Duper Sounds. Neither Asbury Sunset Presents or Watermark profit in any way from any revenue generated by donations to the streams. All monies go to the artists and the participating non-profits.
