SummerFest: Eliza Neals

August 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

The City of Jersey City, Mayor Steven M. Fulop, the Jersey City Municipal Council and the Office of Cultural Affairs are excited to welcome back the SummerFest concert series.

SummerFest is a concert series that takes place every Tuesday and Sunday in Liberty State Park during the months of July and August. Part of the larger Summer in the City series, the Office of Cultural Affairs hand selects musical groups ranging in flavor, from Motown, Jazz, Blues, Vintage and Classic Rock, Country, Cuban Dance, Funk and R&B.

Today’s performance: Eliza Neals (Blues, Rock)

About the Band:

“At first glance, Eliza Neals’ voice shares a Janis Joplin and Etta James singing style; but her own unique and tremendous talents make her specifically superior and very, very likable.” Blues Music Magazine 2018

Eliza is a prolific songwriter, confident producer, arranger, bandleader, pianist, and one-of-a-kind live performer. She sings with unearthly passion and velvety grit, effortlessly pushing air to new heights. Her operatically trained voice has been called both sexy and menacing. Original compositions have garnered Eliza a 2018 Detroit Black Music Award for “Blues Artist of the Year,” and FIVE Detroit Music Awards. A total of eight nominations in the newly formed “Independent Blues Awards” along with “Get Ready To Rock UK’s” glowing Best Artists awards in five categories. Sirius XM Radio CH.74 B.B. Kings Bluesville has had Eliza in rotation since she released her incendiary “Breaking and Entering” literally breaking her into the national blues scene. A total of 5 of Eliza’s songs have been played and are still in rotation on Sirius XM.
