Budesa Brothers at Top of The Trop
The tri-state region’s favorite jazz guitar-organ brotherly duo, the Budesa Brothers, performed at the Top of the Trop to a packed crowd on Thursday night, June 7, in Atlantic City.
The concert was part of a weekly jazz series at the Tropicana presented by the Chicken Bone Beach Historical Foundation, Inc. The series, new this year, has been so successful it has been extended twice. Look for more dates soon. The remaining dates in June are below the photos from last night’s gig, featuring Rich and Ron Budesa, drummer Lucky Thompson and saxophonist Anieal Rojas as part of the quartet.
Atlantic City’s Eddie Morgan (trumpet) and Dan Fogel (organ) sat in for a couple tunes during the glorious evening on the 20th floor of the Tropicana.
June 14: Dahi Divine
June 21: Michael Pedicin
June 28: Ella Gahnt
The Chicken Bone Beach Historical Foundation is also presenting the second of two jazz concerts at Dante Hall in Atlantic City with a Saturday, June 16, performance by keyboardist Marc Cary and his quartet.

Additionally, the CBB is gearing up for its annual free Thursday night summer jazz series on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Stay tuned for more.
