PATH LAUNCHES LIVE PERFORMANCE SERIES AT FIVE NEW JERSEY STATIONS, STARTING THIS THURSDAY AT HARRISON STATION

Date: Jun 04, 2019
Press Release Number: 83-2019

PATH Performs! features local talent selected to entertain commuters at five Hudson County stations, scheduled through the end of October

Local singers, dancers, musicians, comedians and poets will use PATH stations across Hudson County as their stages throughout the 2019 PATH Performs! series, starting this Thursday in Harrison, to enhance the travel experience for thousands of commuters while showcasing the performers’ unique skill sets.

The performance schedule runs through October, with artists to perform primarily from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at select stations one or more times a week. A total of 22 performers have been selected to participate in the program.

Apollo Sonders, a Jersey-City based band, will kick off the program this Thursday, June 6, at 4:30 pm at the Harrison Station. Apollo Sonders has performed at the Bowery Electric in New York City, World Café Live in Philadelphia, and the Asbury Hotel in Asbury Park, N.J., among other popular regional venues.

PATH Performs! is a partnership with the Hudson County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs. Auditions were held in Jersey City in March, and the performers will appear at the Hoboken, Journal Square, Harrison, Newport and Exchange Place PATH stations. The Grove Street station is not included, due to space restrictions and other considerations. A handful of performances also are scheduled for PATH’s WTC facility.

The program aims to create a vibrant cultural experience for PATH’s diverse ridership and community-based artists by utilizing the public transit environment. In line with other public transit performance programs, PATH Performs! does not provide monetary compensation to performers but individual donations can be made to them.

Performances will be permitted only in program-approved designated areas within the stations. Performers are strictly prohibited from impeding the safe flow and movement of passengers entering and exiting the stations and must adhere to performance guidelines and PATH rules and regulations.
