Inspired by Mike and Marla Fisher, owners of the Edison Coffee House who began hosting musicians at their own expense every Friday and Saturday night, Edison Township decided to join the movement! This summer they are unveiling a new arts and music project known as MUSIC STREET and they want all of New Jersey to add Amboy Avenue – where the action takes place – to their must-visit-list for summer 2021. Edison residents at Edison Woods, Edison Woods Senior 55+, Edison Village, Blueberry Village, & Rivendell Heights will now find music every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday night on Music Street throughout the summer.  Mondays have a community theme with local artists and non-profits exhibiting and solo performers. On Wednesdays there is a full band and, if they choose, attendees can add a $5 meal special from nearby Ruby’s Kitchen, Nicks Meat Depot or Fratelli’s pizza and dine outside by the music. There are also bi-monthly open mics at the Coffee House and plans in the works for bands from all genres and children’s events from now till the fall.

Could this be the beginning of a new arts and music mecca? Many people seem to think so. Visit the Edison Chamber of Commerce online for official schedules, follow Edison NJ Happenings on Facebook or @downtownclarabarton or @somethingaboutmelissa on Instagram to get updates.
