Long before Asbury Park became known for rock music, the city’s African American community rocked on Springwood Avenue.  Between 1910 and 1970, the city’s West Side pioneered the sounds of jazz, gospel and rhythm & blues.  This exhibit explores, chronicles and highlights Asbury Park’s black music scene from Count Basie to Billy Brown, through an impressive collection of rare photos and memorabilia.
