“Pac The House” Second Season at HACPAC

The Hackensack Main Street Business Alliance and the City of Hackensack are proud and excited to announce the return of the “PAC The House” at the Hackensack Performing Arts Center (HACPAC). This is the second season of the event, set to include John Pizzarelli, Elijah Bland, Amy Helm, Flor De Toloache and Marc Cohn

On Friday, October 5th, John Pizzarelli, a Paterson Native, starts the series off. Pizzarelli has over 20 solo albums, and has also performed on songs by Paul McCartney, James Taylor and Rosemary Clooney. In the recent years, he’s toured North America, South America, Asia and Europe, performing shows centered on Frank Sinatra’s centennial, the songs of Johnny Mercer, Paul McCartney and Nat King Cole. 

Elijah Bland is next, on Saturday, November 3rd. Bland is a self taught musician, who began playing the piano at 5 years old. He found his own voice, which led him to become an independent recording artist. Bland has performed at B.B. King Blues Club, SOB’s, 54 Below, New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), and DC’s historic Howard Theater with artists like  Stanley Clarke, Yolanda Adams, Lenny Williams and George Duke.

On Saturday, February 2nd, Amy Helm takes the stage. Amy is a singer-songwriter who served in her father Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble Band, as a backing musician. Amy is currently about to release her second solo album, “This Too Shall Light”, on Sept. 21 and tours year-round. 

Then, on Saturday, March 9th, the all-female Mariachi band, Flor de Toloache, will be performing. The band is named after the flower used in Mexico as a love potion and was formed a decade ago. Their critically-acclaimed debut album received a Latin Grammy nomination in 2015 and they are currently touring in support of their latest album “Las Caras Lindas.” 

Finally, on Saturday, April 6th, Grammy-winner Marc Cohn closes out this year’s “PAC The House” series. The singer-songwriter hit the music scene in the 90s when his debut album went Platinum. His most recent work, “Careful What You Dream: Lost Songs and Rarities,” was released in 2016 and he has toured recently with Michael McDonald.
