By Sean McCall
Stid Productions is a booking company from South Jersey who 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. They recently held shows for Carousel Kings, and New Jersey’s Pop Punk band, Count to Four. 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. On Friday, January 6, 2017, The Oak Tavern will be hosting Shane from Valencia’s current Project, “Promise of Redemption” as well as a couple other special guests. (I’ll highlight the bands and direct you to their most recent releases a little further down.)
This show will be held from about 6pm-9pm. 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.

Valencia was a band I personally grew up with through my older brother, so this is a very cool thing to see a band member keeping up and going strong with his personal music. If you’re a Valencia fan, you can catch them at their reunion show at the end of the year with Restorations.
They will be playing at the Fillmore in Philadelphia. You can purchase tickets through Radio 1045 and LiveNation by clicking their Stranger Things Esque Picture below:
