ASBURY PARK, N.J. --- After being nominated for two Asbury Music Awards in 2013, Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son have been announced as a musical guest for the 2014 awards on Dec. 18, 2014. The event will once again be held at the Asbury Park-famous Stone Pony.
"Asbury Park has been my musical home since I was 15," Bobby Mahoney, lead singer and guitarist for the band said. "And I am humbled and honored to be playing the Asbury Music Awards with so many great artists."
The band will join the likes of Deal Casino, Eastbourne, Sofia Nicole among many others as performers for the evening.
It was a busy 2014 for Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son, as the band released its debut full-length studio album, Friends in Low Places, to critical-acclaim. Jersey shore outlet The Aquarian had the following about the album in July:
"Friends In Low Places marks Mahoney’s return to the band format and a more tumultuous and concentrated rock and roll sound. Defiant and green, this record logs adolescent 'life in the fast lane'recorded and learned by the young men who wrote it."
In June, the band released the first album's first music video, "Another Deadbeat Summer." It features shots of not just the shore, but a live performance at the Asbury Park-famous venue The Saint.
The group is currently in the midst of touring to support the album, which has included to stops in Canada as part of Light of Day Canada.
"A lot of hard work went into the past year with this band," rhythm guitarist Jon Alba added. "We are very excited to share the stage with such talented acts and to represent a place we feel is one of our adopted homes."
In 2013, the band was nominated for "Top Young Band," while Mahoney himself was nominated for "Top Male Acoustic Act."
Doors will be at 6 p.m., while Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son hits the stage at 7:25 p.m. Advance tickets for the event can be purchased at the box office at The Saint and The Stone Pony, or in advance via Ticketmaster or Ticketweb.
