David Bromberg
Music lovers have a new mid-Atlantic destination. Bromberg's Big Noise in the Neighborhood presented by AAA is a day-long outdoor festival hosted by guitar legend David Bromberg. American music visionary and Grammy winner John Hiatt, bluegrass innovator Sam Bush and roots-heavy jam band Railroad Earth will play to thousands along the scenic Christina Riverfront. Bromberg, Jorma Kaukonen and Angel Band complete the bill, which will be broadcast in its entirety on Philadelphia-based public radio station WXPN (88.5 FM) and online at www.wxpn.org.

Bromberg's Big Noise in the Neighborhood presented by AAA will be held at Justison Landing Park, a mere two blocks from I-95 in downtown Wilmington. Patrons will have access to craft beers from Delaware brewers Dogfish Head and Twin Lakes, wines by Wente Vinyards and food from Harry's Seafood, Orillas Tapas Bar & Restaurant, Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats, Big Fish Grill and Fat Rick's BBQ. Family-friendly activities include a children's tent operated by the new Delaware Children's Museum. Performances run from noon to 8 p.m.

Two dollars of every ticket will be donated to Haitian earthquake relief efforts, through the Art Creation Foundation for Children (www.artforhaitianchildren.org), which is based in Jacmel, Haiti and the Benjamin Harris Josephson Fund (www.overlookfoundation.org), which sends health care workers to disaster areas.

May 14 Kick-off party: Light Up the Queen Foundation and WXPN (88.5 FM) present a fun-filled night of music with legendary New Orleans Mardi Gras Indian Big Chief Monk Boudreaux & the Golden Eagles. Admission is included in the Super VIP ticket for $150 and includes VIP seating at the festival.

The Queen Theatre: Fifty years ago, the lights went out and the doors closed on the majestic Queen Theatre in downtown Wilmington. Today, the Light Up the Queen Foundation is thrilled to announce that the Queen is ready to rise up and reclaim her former glory—but not without your help.
