“I’ve never performed at the Two River Theater before, but I’ve seen many plays there and I’ve always loved it,” said Tote. “I chose to have my show there because it’s classy, intimate, and different from what anyone else has done around here. Plus, there’s not a bad seat in the house! I’m extremely excited to be performing there.”

In addition to the EP release, Tote will also be celebrating the world premiere of her new music video, “Superman” during the night.  You can see a behind the scenes teaser of the new video.

Danny Coleman, host of the radio show Rock on Radio, will emcee the night which also features a guest performance by the Glimmer Grass Band and special instrumentalist guests Steve Jankowski and Michael Ghegan.  Tickets are $25 for the general public.  A limited number of tickets are available for students at $15.  A copy of the EP is included with each ticket purchase.   Tickets are available online or by calling the box office at (732) 345-1400.

Tote, who has been a big part of the Jersey Shore music scene for the last several years, was first noticed with her former band Ardvark Smile.  That band received Asbury Music Award nominations and won the Rock to the Top competition in 2013.  Taylor was first nominated for Top Female Vocalist as a member of Ardvark Smile and received another nomination after breaking off from the band and becoming a solo artist.  Since leaving Ardvark Smile she has opened for major acts like John Cafferty, Southside Johnny, and Val Emmich. Her band includes lead guitarist Tom Briant, Anthony Flora on drums, Nick Piescor on guitar, and bassist Julian Michalski.
