LPL News: Rock and Roll with the Kootz!


Library Weekly Newsletter | Date: April 14, 2024



A Message from the Director


Rock and Roll with the Kootz!


Livingston Library Community, 

Are you looking for an afternoon filled with friends, neighbors, and live music? We invite you to join us for a springtime Music Matters concert in the Library’s program room, where we are pleased to welcome back The Kootz on Sunday, April 21st, at 2pm

The Kootz have been delighting crowds for over twenty years, with a music repertoire featuring a mixture of classic rock from the 1960s through the 1990s, pop, r&b, and blues. Having played all over the tri-state area, it is safe to say that they are one of New Jersey’s (and maybe even Livingston’s) most beloved bands.  

Music lovers of all ages are welcome to attend. It is sure to be a good time, and you might even find yourself singing and dancing in your seat! 

We hope to see you on the 21st!
