Organized by Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes guitarist Glenn Alexander, the seventh annual Pig Gig returns on Sun., Oct. 23, 2022 from 2pm to 8pm at the Italian American Hall in Scotch Plains, New Jersey.
Pig Gig is a benefit with all profits going to the The Fibrolamellar Cancer Foundation in honor of Glenn’s nephew, Jay, who lost his battle to the disease in 2011. Fibrolamellar carcinoma is a rare cancer of the liver that typically grows in teens and adults under 40 years old. Sadly, no one has ever survived it.
Glenn, who has also played with Bruce Springsteen and Conan O’ Brien’s band, will be performing this year with both Shadowland (with special guest vocalist/harmonica player Southside Johnny) and Blue Americana.
All attendees must be vaccinated. Tickets can be purchased here.
American Blues Scene is proud to be one of the sponsors for this pig roast with a purpose.
