Stid Productions Presents: Carousel Kings // Knockout Kid // Count to Four + More @ The Oak Tavern
Thursday, Dec. 8, 2016, Vineland, NJ
By Sean McCall
Stid Productions is a booking company from South Jersey that has been contributing to the local music scene by booking bands and putting on shows since early 2007. They’ve helped put local acts on shows with more well-known artists such as Candy Hearts, Koji, Where the Ocean Meets The Sky, and many more. Stid Productions mainly books in Vineland, which used to be the home of Hanger 84. However, many of the present day shows are held at The Oak Tavern.
The Oak Tavern is a local bar & grille located in Vineland, New Jersey, that welcomes everyone with great food, drink, and entertainment - whether it be a live DJ, billiards, Karaoke, or live music that hosts local talent. This Thursday, The Oak Tavern will be hosting a stacked line up of bands from all over. Carousel Kings (PA), of Victory Records, will be playing, as well as a few others such as New Jersey’s native Count to Four. (I’ll highlight the bands and direct you to their most recent releases a little further down.)
This show will be held on December 8, 2016, at The Oak Tavern in Vineland, New Jersey from about 6pm-10pm. You can buy tickets online through Eventbrite for $10, or you can spend the extra two dollars and pay $12 at the door the day of the show.
