“We are very excited to bring some great jazz to the town of Kearny. We toured the industrial space at Kearny Point and immediately saw the potential for presenting music,” says Riverview Jazz Executive Director Bryan Beninghove. “The food and drinks at Sprig are top-notch, there’s a wealth of amazing musicians in the area, and the vibe is really hip. We’re excited!” RiverviewJazz.Org is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
