The Last Reckless Steamy Nights Concert of 2023


Our community partner, the Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Foundation ( brought the 2023 Reckless Steamy Nights concert series to a close with a tremendous concert by Goldenseal.

The 5-piece band Goldenseal just celebrating their 22nd year together. The band includes guitarist and lead vocalist Joe Hughes, Pat Martucci on drums and vocals, Jesse Kessler on bass, Art Hoffer on lead guitar and vocals and Lee Sanderson on sax and keyboards.

They were formed not too long after the late past JSJBF President Dennis Eschbach conceived of the idea to partner with the Woman’s Club to put on these monthly shows. They opened with a stirring rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” as a tribute to Dennis, marking a year since his passing. 

BTW: the walls were covered with the beautiful works of water media artist, Yan Cao,
