History of The Brookdale Guitar Show

In 1994, the owner of Raritan Bay Guitar Repair, CJ, thought it would be a pretty cool idea if there could be a yearly get-together where musicians could show off their chops, and vendors could showcase their newest inventory. The first gathering, affectionately known as “The Minstrel’s Toot” was held at Studio 84 in Howell. As word spread about this yearly event throughout the artist community, the number of attendees and vendors continued to grow. Over time The Minstrel’s Toot out grew its name and the space gradually morphing into The Brookdale Guitar Show that it is today! All proceeds raised during this event directly benefit 90.5 The Night, Brookdale Public Radio. The success of the event is due to the support from vendors throughout the United States and the incredibly talented musicians who showcase their skills. Now recognized as the premier guitar show on the Jersey Shore for guitar and music enthusiasts of all ages, it is also an extremely successful fundraiser for 90.5 The Night, Brookdale Public Radio. On behalf of everyone involved, we wish to offer our sincere thanks to all those who have shown your support of Brookdale Public Radio; our continued growth within the communities we serve is directly attributed to your active involvement. Enjoy the show!
