Headliner - The Drifters
The Drifters served to link Fifties rhythm & blues with Sixties soul music. They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 alongside the Beach Boys, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Les Paul and The Supremes.

They epitomized the vocal group sound of New York City. Theirs was the sweet but streetwise sound of R&B suffused with gospel influences. The material the Drifters recorded came from a variety of sources, including the songwriting teams of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, and Gerry Goffin and Carole King. All were New York-based songwriters who wrote evocatively of romance and everyday life in the big city, and the Drifters made an ideal vehicle for the convincing delivery of such scenarios.

Hit songs on their set list include: "On Broadway," "There Goes My Baby," "Dance With Me," "This Magic Moment," "Under The Boardwalk," "Some Kind of Wonderful," "Up On The Roof," "Stand By Me," "Please Stay," "Saturday Night At The Movies," "Spanish Harlem," "Sweets For My Sweet," "Save The Last Dance for Me," "I Count The Tears," and more.

Forth Union is a skate and culture organization appearing in its first incarnation at the Carousel on the Asbury Park Boardwalk complete with a skateboard bowl, courtesy of Red Bull, and obstacles, art exhibition and event space. This endeavor is produced by Madison Marquette in partnership with Red Bull as part of the ongoing activation of the Asbury Park Boardwalk.

Forth Union Skate & Culture Organization takes its name from the bond between the skate and artistic communities and their shared pursuit of boundary pushing. Forth Union is more than a place, it is a group of individuals who have come together to build something inclusive.
