After more than six months of being subjected to the ongoing global pandemic that had stopped all of our leisurely activities, New Jersey has geared up to open its doors to entertainment once more. The most exciting entertainment options to resume are concerts or live music events. 

In light of the ongoing pandemic, these events might not be the same as they used to be, but the prospect of concerts and live music being available once more is certainly compelling. Various casinos and restaurants have updated their schedules to announce musical events. If the state regulatory authorities allow these events to proceed, you could soon see multiple entertainment and music events popping up throughout the state.

Read on as we take a closer look at some of these musical events.
