Rick Barry's "A Night In Progress" Returns On April 20

(Asbury Park, NJ) – The series began as a dare for songwriter Rick Barry to come up with new material, but wound up leading to songs on recent records by April Smith, Val Emmich, Allie Moss, and others.  In fact, even the veteran songwriter Glen Burtnik thanks Rick and his show for lighting a fire in him.  Burtnik, along with James Wells (from the Gay Blades), Allie Moss, and Amanda Duncan will perform in the special return of Rick Barry's "A Night In Progress" on Wednesday, April 20th at The Saint in Asbury Park.

Billed as a special one night return, it will be the first time the show has taken place in over a year.  During the two years this monthly series ran, it challenged artists to perform sets of all new material written specifically to be showcased at the event. In 2009 the series won the Asbury Music Award for "Best thing to Happen".

The show will feature sets of all new material from each of the artists as well as the host, Rick Barry.

There will be a limited ammount of tickets available for this intimate, listening room event.  As with preview "A Nigh In Progress" shows, the show is a zero tolerance, no talking show. Attendees who talk during the artist's performances will be asked to leave without refund.
