06.21.16 - Rainbow Fresh owns the summer! We're excited to kick it off this weekend, with a bunch of awesome gigs! This Friday, Hoboken comes calling...check us out at Finnegan's Pub at 10pm! Always a pleasure to see our Hudson County brethren! Saturday, we start off with a private party, then end the evening down at John & Peter's in New Hope! J&P's is a throwback music venue, and that's a good thing, folks. It takes us back to a time when live music was king! Check out our show, it starts at 9:30pm! Finally, Sunday, there's a solo set to be heard at Pilsener Haus in Hoboken! Check out the sounds, starting at 1pm!
06.16.16 - Go to Hops this Friday! We'll be there, we'll play some tunes, and we'll hang out! Sound good? Good! See you there at 9:30pm. It really is that simple.
06.09.16 - Will we be able to rock Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten this Saturday at 9pm? We'll just have to wait and see, won't we? You have our word, we'll do our best! I hear Asbury Park is quite lovely this time of year!
06.01.16 - Hailey's alert! Kick off June with this beauty of a gig! We'll confirm the hang at 9pm, this Friday, in Metuchen. Saturday, at 8:30pm, you gotta catch us at Small World Coffee in Princeton! Like the Summer Solstice, this happens only once a year, so don't miss out!
05.26.16 - Another trifecta gig alert! Solo performance tonight, at Pilsener Haus in Hoboken! Don't miss the 8pm start, mein friends! Tomorrow, we'll be at the Ivy Inn, and you don't need a Princeton degree to know how that goes! Be there by 10pm! Finally, New Brunswick, home of my beloved alma mater, comes calling on Saturday! Don't you miss the 9pm start at World of Beer! Happy Memorial Day Weekend, everybody!
05.18.16 - Hops! If that one word conjures up memories of a good-time rock & roll outing, then you've seen us there before! Well, you're in luck, because it's deja vu all over again! This Friday, come to this awesome Morristown joint. We'll be starting there at 9:30pm! Saturday, don't miss our first appearance at the Garner Arts Festival, at 2pm! We're definitely looking forward to playing for our friends up in NY. Any county named Rockland is a place we wanna be!
05.11.16 - 4 gigs in a week is outrageous! Outrageously good, that is! Tonight, don't miss Rainbow Fresh's return after a two week Anarctic scientific expedition...it turns out, penguins love us, too! Yearning for warmer climes, we'll be at Moby Dick's tonight, 7:30pm, in Sewaren. Friday, we test the waters of Green Brook, NJ, and attempt to rock Capital Craft at 9pm! This is a new joint for us, and we hope to grow old together. Saturday, we return to familiar sensations, and head south on the Parkway to Central Jersey, home of Metuchen's own Hailey's Harp & Pub! We hope to see old friends and make some new ones, starting at 9pm! Finally, Sunday, we return to the mecca of the Jersey music scene, Hoboken! This is a solo show, but high-energy, nonetheless! Come to Pilsner Haus and Biergarten at 1:00pm, and let's rock, mein friends!
04.22.16 - Another awesome weekend of gigs! Tonight, we visit the Ivy Inn, which is an incredible joint...if you've seen us there before, you know what we're talking about. It's been the scene of many an epic gig, and we hope to deliver a performance for the ages at 10pm tonight! Tomorrow, things get interesting in Metuchen, as we take part in the Fauxchella Music Festival at Hailey's Harp & Pub! The music starts at 12pm, and we close the show at 3pm. Later that evening, we head over to...brace yourself...John & Peter's! New Hope always shows us love, and we do our best to reciprocate! Check us out at 9:30pm at New Hope's finest music venue!
04.07.16 - Two excellent gigs this week! First, we'll heading down to Hailey's in Metuchen on Friday for an awesome 9pm show! If you've ever been to Hailey's, then you'll know why we love playing there. If you haven't, well, what are you waiting for? Saturday, we return to Hops in Morristown! Did you know that George Washington slept there? Well, he did, and we can show you the exact seat, too! The term 'passed out' didn't exist in the late 1700's, so we're not sure if it was because George had a few too many beers. He deserved it after all of those brutal battles with the Brits in those horrible Morristown winters. Anyway, show starts at 9:30pm!
03.22.16 - This Wednesday, come check us out at Moby Dick's in Sewaren, NJ! This white whale isn't so elusive. Not only that, it will bring you way more joy than the creature in Herman Melville's classic! We set sail at 7:30pm, me hearties! This Saturday, we head on down to Salt Creek Grille in Princeton for a 8pm show! We have some of our best shows here, so don't miss it!
03.16.16 - Hops is where it's at! This Friday at 9:30pm, please be sure to catch us at this great little lounge in Morristown. Lotsa beers, good food, and good tunes. What else do you need?
03.03.16 - Tonight! Catch a solo performance of the Rainbow Fresh catalog, plus a plethora of groovy covers! It all happens at American Spirits Roadhouse in Asbury, NJ, at 8:30pm. Friday, you can't miss our first John & Peter's performance of 2016! We'll be rockin' this New Hope joint this Friday at 9:30pm, so don't miss it! Finally, another solo strum is happening at Pilsener Haus in Hoboken on Sunday at 1:00pm! So, get that stein filled, eat up the brat, and listen to some fine tuneage.
02.27.16 - Oh, yes! Tonight, we play at World of Beer in New Brunswick! We really love this joint, and you know we're gonna give it our all. So, if you wanna see a band let it all hang out, come check out the show at 9pm!

Saturday, we head over to Metuchen, NJ, and play at one of our favorite spots, Hailey's Harp & Pub! Come and savor the Irish flavor! Show starts at 9pm... hope to see you there!

Friday, we'll be at Ivy Inn in Princeton, starting at 10pm... we always feel like its Christmas morning at that joint! Finally, Saturday, we'll be at the American Spirits Roadhouse at 9pm, in Asbury, NJ! We love this joint and we hope to see some of our friends there!
11.25.15 - Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! We'll be at Finnegan's Pub in Hoboken on Saturday, celebrating the long weekend! Hopefully, you'll be there, too! See you then at 10pm!
11.17.15 - This Friday, come to our show at John & Peter's in New Hope! Why? Two reasons. First, it's gonna be awesome. Second, the 1st 10 fans who show up will win a brand new 2016 Buick Enclave! Disclaimer: Rainbow Fresh has the right to lie about anything non-music related.

And this Thursday's gig is gonna be great when we return to one of our main haunts (get it?), Hailey's in Metuchen! Not to be outdone, Finnegan's, our favorite Hoboken joint, will be supplying the scene for pre-Halloween rocking!
10.21.15 - Hops on Friday! Can't wait for this gig, as it's not far from our home base, and it's always a good time... catch us at 9:30pm!
10.15.15 - Can Rainbow Fresh pull off the trifecta? They have my bet! Friday's show is at the Ivy Inn in Princeton, starting at 10pm. For the uninitiated, you best initiate yourself! Saturday's show is at Artie's Bar and Grill, a beautiful place in beautiful Frenchtown! Show starts at 10pm. Sunday, we take our act to the ever-awesome Pilsener Haus & Biergarten in wonderful Hoboken! We start at 1pm, so grab your stein, watch some football, eat some Octoberfest, and listen to some tunes! Danke!
10.09.15 - Oh, man! Hailey's tonight! This show starts at 9pm, so don't be late... Metuchen awaits! Tomorrow, we hit Kingston, mon! Not Trenchtown, not Frenchtown, but Kingston, NJ! Kixx is the name of the joint, and it's a new one for us, so we're excited about it. This one's a 9pm start, too. Finally, Sunday, we hit the Jersey Shore Premium Outlets from 12-3pm!

We usually play their New Brunswick location, but we're happy to make the closer trip to the Big Apple. As the name implies, they got a lotta different kinds of beer... and the pretzels are deelish!
08.19.15 - Oh, yes! The Ivy Inn in Princeton is this Friday! Don't miss this gig, it's one of our favorites... show starts at 10pm. Saturday night is a different kind of vibe, but it's all about good music, which is the common denominator. Check us out at the Washington House in Basking Ridge at 8pm!

08.06.15 - Four gigs this weekend, holy moly! First up, this Friday, it's our beloved New Hope home, John & Peter's! It's always a great scene there, so don't miss our 9:30pm start. Next up, on Saturday, we have Hops in Morristown at 9:30pm! George Washington stayed here, and I'm sure he would've stayed longer if he would've heard us play some tunes! It's a double-header on Sunday, people! We're not talking innings here, we're talking sets! First up, at 12pm, we'll be at the Jersey Shore Premium Outlets, providing the ultimate shopping experience! Then, we head to Asbury (not Asbury Park), for a show at the hottest new venue in Western Jersey! Our good friend Pete D'Costa, owner of the incredible National Hotel in Frenchtown, has opened up a new place called the American Spirits Roadhouse! We'll be hitting it at around 8pm, but there's music starting at 6pm, so check it out!
06.25.15 - Tonight! Check us out at Pilsener Haus & Biergarten at 8pm in Hoboken! Ja, das ist gut! Friday, we hit the Pattenburg House in Asbury, NJ (not Asbury Park) at 9pm...man, we love that joint! Finally, Saturday, New Hope's very own John & Peter's plays host to the Freshness! It happens at 9:30, so don't miss out!
06.16.15 - We got 3 awesome gigs this weekend! Friday, we return to Hailey's Harp & Pub in Metuchen for a 9pm show. Anyone who's been to Hailey's knows what a fun place it is. Saturday, we take our act down south on Rt 1 for an 8pm show at Salt Creek Grille! We love that joint! Finally, Sunday, we head to NYC for our favorite Manhattan gig, the Make Music New York Festival! This year, we team up with Peanut Butter & Company again, on Sullivan St (between Bleecker and W 3rd) at 12pm. If it ain't broke, why fix it?

05.29.15 - The notice might be late, but the gig will be great! Check us out at Porter's Pub, tonight, in Easton, PA. Things kick off at 10pm! We got a private party this Saturday, so we'll only be seeing some of you there...but don't worry, we'll be thinking about all of you!
05.20.15 - Memorial Day weekend kicks off a four-bulous schedule for Rainbow Fresh! Friday, at 10pm, we kick things off at the Ivy Inn, in Princeton, NJ, where adjectives such as 'over the top', 'insane', and 'outrageous' are routinely used to describe the phenomena we call the 'Rainbow Fresh Experience'. Saturday, we head over to Finnegan's Pub in our beloved town of Hoboken, NJ, and crank out tunes from 10pm to 1am! Finnegan's is a true jewel of a venue, so please don't miss this one! Sunday, we have our 2nd private party of the season. But we gotta keep things... um, private about that one. Well, we're looking forward to it! Lastly, on Monday, we'll be playing our tunes in front of unsuspecting, but surely-to-be-blown-away shoppers at the Jersey Shore Premium Outlets in Tinton Falls, NJ, at 12pm. Add that to your shopping list!
05.11.15 - Salt Creek Grille was awesome this past Friday! Thanks to all those who made it. We also had two exquisite gigs on Saturday, one of which was a private party, and the other one being Hops in Morristown! Gotta love those two-a-days! This week, we have a private party on Saturday in Morristown that we'll be looking forward to.
04.28.15 - Communiversity was amazing! If you were there, thank you! This Friday, we get back to our all-time favorite New Hope venue, John & Peter's. Show starts at 9:30pm, so please, don't be late! We're so pumped for this one...
04.23.15 - It's finally here... Communiversity! Rainbow Fresh and the town/university of Princeton have a very special bond. If you look at our calendar, you'll notice that we play at lot of our gigs here. This Sunday at 3:30pm, we'll have the privilege of playing at this great community event! So, please, check us out! We'll be at the Washington Road Stage, doing our thing... don't miss it!
04.13.15 - Very excited for our Ivy Inn gig this Friday! If you've never been at this Princeton joint to see us play, you're missing out. Princeton may be Ivy League, but there's no snobbery here! Show starts at 10pm. Also, we've been working on a new recording, 'You Could've Had The Best', which is shaping up to be a Rainbow Fresh classic! We're definitely going to be playing that this Friday!
04.01.15 - There will be no April foolin' around tonight! We'll bring our serious (not really) business to Moby Dick's in Sewaren at 7:30pm! Get ready to get down and have a good time! So, I guess there will be foolin' around. This Friday, we share the stage (this hardly ever happens) with our pals, Mister Revelator, at Fran's Pub in New Hope! Showtime is at 9pm, so don't miss out...
03.25.15 - Here we come, Hoboken! Finnegan's Pub is our new favorite joint in town, and we'll be there this Friday at 10pm! Because our first gig was so nice, we get to play there twice. Hopefully, we can keep it going...
03.18.15 - Led Zeppelin had MSG, the Beatles had Shea Stadium, and Rainbow Fresh has the Ivy Inn... minus the screaming girls and limos! But it's still the best time around... see you this Friday at 10pm!
03.13.15 - Hops, tonight! Check out this very cool lounge in Morristown at 10pm! We'll be there...
03.04.15 - Let's face it, March kind of sucks, weather-wise. It's usually not as bad as January or February, but everyone's so sick of Winter by this time, and every year, we're fooled into thinking Spring is just around the corner. Well, it's not. But not everything in March sucks! Two examples: our gigs this week at Moby Dick's (Wednesday at 7:30pm), and Northern Soul (Thursday at 9:00pm)! Come out and shake those mid-week, late-Winter doldrums and have a few tunes on us!
02.19.15 - This Friday, don't miss our show at World of Beer in New Brunswick! We're all big Rutgers fans (long-suffering), and we'll make the most of this on-campus appearance... class starts at 9pm! This Saturday, we got Hops! No, we can't jump that high, but we'll get our musician's high at this lovely Morristown venue! See ya at 10pm!
02.11.15 - All that love talk in the previous post was a bit premature, wasn't it? Especially since Valentine's Day is this week. No matter, Rainbow Fresh has got you covered, lovebugs. Make sure you make it to Hailey's Harp & Pub in Metuchen on Friday at 9pm, because we're gonna romance you with 3 sets of sounds that will lift you're libido faster than a virgin at the Playboy Mansion! On Saturday, get ready to go to Salt Creek Grille in Princeton at 8pm, as we pump out tunes sweeter than a box of Russell Stover's!
02.04.15 - February is the month of love, and we have two chances to show our love for you guys, at two venues we absolutely love! Ok, that's enough with the love. But seriously, check us out this Friday at John & Peter's in New Hope! Show starts at 9:30pm, and we can't wait! Saturday, things just keep on getting better because we hit Princeton again...Small World Coffee to be exact! The music starts at 8:30, so come on down (or up).
01.30.15 - We are not in hibernation! Although there's no gigs this week, we'll be working on new music and recording. Wish us luck, we want to come out with the best sounds possible... peace, brothers and sisters!
01.15.15 - We love those Ivy Inn gigs! Well, it just so happens that we have one this Friday at 10pm! 2015 is off to a very good start... come down (or up) to Princeton, and lets have a good time!
01.06.15 - Wow, a New Year! As Mr. Lennon said, let's make it a good one, without any fear. Here's something you definitely shouldn't be afraid of... the two great gigs we have this week! As a matter of fact, seeing one or both of these shows would be healthy for you, although I can't prove it. But I just know it would be. So, we begin our wellness campaign this Wednesday, 7:30pm, at Moby Dick's in Sewaren! Great venue, great people- don't miss out! Saturday's performance at Salt Creek Grille in Princeton at 8pm will surely lower your cholesterol and give your ears the medicine they need! Be well!
12.31.14 - We wish you all a very, very Happy New Year! If you're still uncommitted about tonight, well, it's time to make a decision! Here's the smart move: Come to DPAC's New Year's Eve Gala Fundraiser at the Event Center by Cornerstone (46 N Sugan Rd, New Hope, PA 18938)... festivities start at 8pm! There's food, dancing, a silent action, an amazing Cabaret show, and us! Sounds like a fantastic way to close out 2014!
12.23.14 - This past weekend's gigs were incredible! Special thanks go out to both venues, Hailey's Harp & Pub and World of Beer! But most importantly, we'd like to thank our fans who are just about the best people on the planet... we love you guys and we wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and Happy Kwanzaa!
12.19.14 - Hailey's tonight! Basically, Hailey's Harp & Pub is our living room, and we're inviting all of you to come to our house at 9pm! Maybe there's a Christmas tune or two in the mix, who knows? See you in Metuchen! Next up, we have World of Beer on Saturday at 9pm, and it's always great feeling to rock out in New Brunswick! These will be our last gigs before Jesus' birthday, so we wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
12.11.14 - It's as good as it gets this weekend! First, we hit the Ivy Inn this Friday at 10pm for our final peformance of 2014... you know it's gonna be great, so don't miss it... see you in Princeton! Saturday, we play Gateway Liquor's annual Christmas Bash at 8pm... even Santa might get a little wasted at this one! It's all happening in Atlantic Highlands, right on Route 36!
12.02.14 - This Saturday, don't miss our show at John & Peter's! We return to our favorite New Hope joint with renewed purpose, a decimated bank account (thanks, Christmas), and hope for a better tomorrow (thanks, Christmas)! Sound ambitious enough? This ain't no Cyber Monday sale and this ain't no spectator sport! You gotta be in it to win it! See you there!
11.26.14 - Holy Snowballs! Looks like we'll be dreaming of a White Thanksgiving, but don't let the snow deter you from these holiday weekend gig offerings! First, top off a Black Friday shopping spree with a trip to Hailey's Harp & Pub in Metuchen! You'll get incredible deals on live music at the very best discounts possible... actually, you'll get it for absolutely free! Sale starts a 9pm. Then, find out just how enjoyable a warm beverage and good music can be... see for yourself at Small World Coffee in Princeton this Saturday at 8:30pm.
11.18.14 - Easton beckons! This Friday, we'll head west to Porter's pub for a 10pm show! Can't wait, it's been awhile since we've been there... hope you can make it!
11.05.14 - Had a great show at World of Beer last night, celebrating their 1st Anniversary in New Brunswick! It was an honor to be chosen for such a great event! Tomorrow night at 9pm, don't miss out on what will surely be a great time in Hoboken! As NJ ex-governor Thomas Kean would say, 'Rainbow Fresh and Northern Soul... perfect together!' Finally, a stripped-down but no-less-awesome RF awaits you on Friday at Hops in Morristown... show starts at 10pm!
10.28.14 - Halloween is coming and something groovy this way comes! This Halloween night, it would be un-ghoul of you to miss the best Halloween party this side of Transylvania... the National Hotel's Annual Halloween Bash, featuring your boo-sical friends, Rainbow Fresh! It's a tradition now, and it's one that we love!
10.24.14 - Ivy Inn tonight!! Please note, tomorrow's gig has changed venues! We are now playing at 11:30pm at Maxwell's in Hoboken at 11:30pm!
10.14.14 - Tell the whole world we're at Hailey's this Friday! Though Metuchen could hardly hold the entire earth's populace, we hope to jam the joint up - with people and with tunes! Hope you can make it! Show starts at 9pm...
10.10.14 - We had an excellent gig at Moby Dick's this past Wednesday! If you came, you know what I'm talking about. Today, we'll be going to New Brunswick to play at World of Beer at 9pm, and we always look forward to that gig! Saturday, we'll jump on over to Hops in Morristown at 10pm for a stripped down (but no less rockin') set. Finally, Saturday at 12pm, we hope to see down the shore for our last Jersey Premium Outlets gig of the season! That's a whole lotta gigs...
10.02.14 - Geez, I know it probably hasn't been that long, but we sure miss playing at John & Peter's in New Hope! That's to be remedied soon, as we are gearing up for what should be a great show, this Friday at 9:30pm! You know we got mad love for J&P's, and we're gonna prove it this weekend!
09.24.14 - Ok, only one gig this week, but it's a doozy! Check us out this Friday, as we dive bomb Metuchen, and fire some musical salvos at the patrons of Hailey's Harp & Pub! The attack is planned for 2100 hours... over and out!
09.17.14 - Thursday night, check us out at World Of Beer in New Brunswick! Go, Rutgers! Festivities commence at 9pm. Holy Moly, we have the Ivy Inn this Friday! Don't miss out, because it's usually a gig of epic proportions... show starts at 10pm.
09.08.14 - Two awesome gigs this week! This Thursday, we have Northern Soul at 9pm, and we're looking forward to it because that place rocks! Saturday, we bring our act to Morristown for a 10pm show at Hops... we could definitely enjoy getting used to this!
08.21.14 - Sorry we haven't been on here in awhile, we miss you! Come check us out tonight at World of Beer in New Brunswick at 8:30pm! Tomorrow night, we'll be at Moby Dick's in Sewaren... 9pm start!
08.05.14 - Two excellent gigs this weekend! It'll be like visiting the homes of two of our best friends! This Friday, it's an early August blowout at John & Peter's in New Hope! Show starts at 9:30pm, so don't be tardy to the party (never thought I'd be quoting from an Atlanta housewife... oh, well). Saturday, we're back at Hailey's in Metuchen... love that joint! Show starts at 9pm, and we hope to see some of our old pals, and to make some new ones, as well.
07.22.14 - Roxy & Dukes Roadhouse! Well, people have been telling us about this place for years, and we've got a show there this Friday at 9pm! Hopefully, it will be a great show because you guys know we'll let it all hang out for you... always!
07.16.14 - Oh, man, the Ivy Inn? Please don't miss what should prove to be an awesome, rockin', midsummer night's show in Princeton! It all happens this Friday, at 10pm! Don't be late!
07.10.14 - Alright, some long-awaited Hoboken action! Check us out, tonight at 9pm, for what should be a great show at Northern Soul. We've missed playing there, and we can't wait!
06.27.14 - This one's for you, Jon! Jon Bross, our beloved engineer, co-producer, friend, etc., is recovering from some pretty serious medical problems... we can't wait until you're back in action, pal! Jon is also the sound engineer at Triumph Brewing Company in New Hope, which is where we happen to be playing this Saturday at 10pm! So, although he won't be there working the board, he will be there in spirit... you are missed, brother!
06.25.14 - Check this out! We were a featured Make Music New York artist in Metro NY magazine! It was, by the way, an incredible day! What a way to celebrate the first day of summer!
06.17.14 - Quadfecta alert! Did we just make up a word? No matter, we have four shows this weekend... and three of them are this Saturday! First up, we play our favorite NYC gig, the Make Music New York Festival! This has become an annual tradition for us, and we love it! This'll be the 3rd year that we're partnering up with our pals, Peanut Butter & Co., and we'll be playing in front of their storefront on Sullivan St at 12:00pm. So please, if you're wandering around Manhattan on Saturday, make your way towards the West Village and do some sidewalk partying with us!
