MOGO Musician Spotlight: dollys

Bands on a Budget is psyched to live in Asbury Park, a town with such a thriving music scene and we work hard to help our local artists expand their brand to take their careers to the next level. That's why we're proud to be a sponsor of Asbury Live, a free weekly summer concert series being held on Wednesday evenings (8PM-10PM) and located on the 1st Avenue Green Space at the Asbury Park Boardwalk.

MOGO Korean Fusion Tacos will be donating $1 from every taco sold at the event towards supporting local musicians and investing in the future of Asbury Park’s music scene. The proceeds will go to the Asbury Park Where Music Lives youth initiative, which provides musical education programming, lessons and musical instruments for Asbury Park’s youth
