JERSEY CITY, N.J.   November 6, 2014 – Get ready! Soon you’ll get the chance to hear the King of Latin R&B, Joe Bataan, and local bands; Soul Generation, featuring Cliff Perkins; TruSoL and PRIME, who have enjoyed entertaining their loyal fans for many years at this special venue, the Miller Branch Library.

Joe Bataan has become a much-desired perennial act, though he joined Soul Generation and PRIME in 2006, with TruSoL having entertained in 2011. However, it’s both Soul Generation and PRIME holding the fort, so to speak, with 18 years of soul-singing for Cliff Perkins & company at the Miller Branch, and 28, for PRIME.
