ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (August 31, 2016) — Celebrate one of the greatest eras in rock and roll history with a free concert at Tropicana Atlantic City. Mark Diomede & The Juggling Suns Project will present a FREE concert– “A Tribute to the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd & More!” on Saturday, September 24, 2016, in the Grand Exhibition Center. Show time is at 8 p.m. and doors open at 7:30 p.m. On the night of the show, be sure to check out Jen Scott from the Jen Scott Show on Kool 98.3 doing a live radio remote from 8:00-9:30 p.m.
