*Tour Premiere



– Concert was rescheduled from the 31/10, because of the hurricane Sandy.
– “Night With Jersey Devil” and “Monster Mash” are both world premieres.
– “Monster Mash” is a 1962 novelty song and the best-known song by Bobby “Boris” Pickett. The song was released as a single on Gary S. Paxton’s Garpax Records label in August 1962 along with a full-length LP called The Original Monster Mash, which contained several other monster-themed tunes. The “Monster Mash” single reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on October 20 of that year, just in time for Halloween. It has been a perennial holiday favorite ever since. (read more)
