Riverview Jazz Festival back for bigger year

By Summer Dawn Hortillosa / The Jersey Journal
on May 30, 2014 at 8:04 AM

Only a year after its inception, the organization behind the Riverview Jazz Festival in Jersey City Heights is hoping to take the entire city by storm.

With the second annual Riverview Jazz Festival coming up this Sunday, arts organization is kicking off what they hope will be a year of music events. The festival, which will run in conjunction with the Farms in the Heights farmers market in Riverview-Fisk Park, features five local artists from different ends of the jazz spectrum.

Performers include returning act New Tricks featuring JC trumpeter Ted Chubb, drummer Vince Ector?s Organatomy and the Mark Guiliana Quartet with soprano Gretchen Parlato. To wrap, the Brightside Trio from Brightside Tavern will lead the day?s performers in an all-star jam.

?Last year, it was just a few of us who lived near Ogden Avenue and the Heights community doing this. Now we?re working year-round to really get this up,? said co-founder Bryan Beninghove, who is also playing the festival with Beninghove?s Hangmen, a group that plays ?surf-noir? tunes that sound like they came straight from a Tarentino film.

Beninghove says while Jersey City?s hunger for jazz and other live music is growing, there are few venues to give the crowds their fill. The people need more than outdoor music showcases like Groove on Grove and nontraditional venues like Lamp Post Bar and Grille, he says.

?The community is ripe to support different arts events and I really think this event has potential to be a bigger thing, with even more venues involved and doing events throughout the week,? he added. ?The Heights has changed so much now -- the community really wants to do things.?

The Riverview Jazz Festival will be Sunday, June 1, from noon to 6 p.m. at Riverview-Fisk Park, Palisade Avenue between Bowers and Griffith streets, in Jersey City. For more information and to learn more about the lineup, visit

sound. Their ?creeptastic surf-noir? approach developed from a desire to mash the music of Tom Waits

soundtrack to a Tarantino film. They have been called ?NYC?s most cinematic noir band? (NY
Music Daily). Music from their latest recordings has been featured on Comedy Central, IFC, and more.
The band is led by saxophonist Bryan Beninghove, a Jersey City mainstay, who performs regularly in the
area in many different settings.

That's old news:
Jersey City decides not to send police layoff plan to Trenton as union and mayor vow to resume negotiations to cut costs
Friday, December 03, 2010

Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy held off yesterday on filing a plan in Trenton to lay off 82 police officers and demote 12 superior officers in hopes the city's rank-and-file police union and his administration can strike a deal on concessions.

On Wednesday night, Healy announced his intention to file the layoff plan with the state yesterday. But after he made that announcement, police union officials showed up at City Hall and the mayor and the union honchos apparently bridged some differences.

Healy yesterday attributed the divide that nearly led to the submission of the layoff plan to a failure to communicate.

"The union guys told me that they didn't get all the information, but they did tell me (that) with all the information they have now, they want an opportunity to sit down, eyeball it, and see if we can come to some consensus," Healy said yesterday. "I am absolutely open and hopeful we can do it."

Healy reiterated yesterday that the city wants to institute a "pay lag" with the union that would save the city about $3.4 million and he wants the officers to agree to a one-time give-back of the $1,300 annual uniform allowance for a savings of $1.2 million.

The "pay lag" would essentially mean that officers would be owed a week's pay that they would receive upon retirement, officials said.

The mayor said the administration and police brass found cuts and revenue sources that would save another $2.4 million.

Healy said the concessions by POBA members, combined with efforts by the department to cut costs and find revenues, would avert layoffs completely. He seemed surprised the deal hadn't been accepted by the union.

POBA President Jerry DeCicco said yesterday that the union had not been informed of the mayor's proposal before he announced it to the media Wednesday night. He said the union was still operating on a written proposal made by the city before Thanksgiving that demanded six concessions for a savings of $8 million.

"We had no knowledge they were going to announce anything like that, and there is a little mistrust right now," DeCicco said. "There has to be an iron clad guarantee that not a single police officer will get laid off if we are to consider his new proposal. He owes that to residents, and he owes it to police."

DeCicco said he plans to meet with city officials for talks today but noted that the layoff process will take a month or two and there is plenty of time to negotiate.

Once notified, Trenton has 30 days to approve a layoff plan. The city would then have to provide 45 days notice to the workers being laid off. ... 91361143322270.xml&coll=3

One bus driver talked on his cellphone the entire 40-minute ride from Wayne to New York. Another got lost on the way to Giants Stadium, while a third slammed the bus doors on a little girl's head.
Still another smoked aboard her bus, then sprayed excessive amounts of air freshener to mask the odor. And yet another shouted "start walking" to an amputee when a wheelchair lift failed to work.

NJ Transit logged more than 25,000 complaints about bus drivers in 2008 and 2009, records show, the majority describing encounters with drivers who berated passengers, bypassed them at bus stops or drove recklessly ? striking garbage cans, cars and, according to one complaint, a woman's dog.

Setting an annual meeting schedule is a routine matter for most city councils, but in Jersey City the resolution on tonight?s agenda has sparked debate.

Ward E Councilman Steven Fulop asked that the council move another of its July or August 2011 meetings from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. to better accommodate the public.

?Every excuse we?ve used for the last five years are not applicable now,? Fulop said at yesterday?s caucus.

The City Council traditionally held July and August meetings at 10 a.m. because the council chamber was not air conditioned. But two years ago the room underwent $1.9 million in renovations, including a new heating and air conditioning system and a new sound system.

Fulop said he received a number of complaints from residents who work saying they could not attend summer meetings because of the morning schedule.

The Aug. 10 meeting is the only summer meeting set for 6 p.m. The July 18, Aug. 8 and Aug. 29 caucus meetings and July 20 and Aug. 31 action meetings are all scheduled for 10 a.m. in the proposed resolution.

Aside from July and August meetings, cacus meetings are held at 5:30 p.m. and action meetings at 6 p.m.

Ward D Councilman Bill Gaughan, the longest serving council member, said he hasn?t received complaints, to which Fulop argued back that Gaughan and other council members were copied on e-mails he received.

?I didn?t get any complaints,? Guaghan asserted adding, ?Take a day off.?

Guaghan, along with Council President Peter Brennan, Councilman Radames ?Ray? Velazquez and Councilwomen Viola Richardson and Willie Flood works for the county.

Fulop works in the financial industry in Manhattan.
