“Judah’s Song” Debuts CD - Well Received

“Judah’s Song” had the debut of their new CD, “Songs of High Praise” at the Safe Haven Café in Somers Point on Saturday night. The band is made up of local friends who have known each other since high school and have added new friends along the way.

Lead vocalist Ted Dawkins has a soulful sound and singer/songwriter Aaron Palermo plays acoustic guitar and has an alternative sound. Palermo finds inspiration to his songs while surfing or just about anywhere.

The packed house (200 +) with standing-room-only ranged from young to old and was very enthusiastic about the music. The band also consists of drummer Zack Pashley (behind drums), Matt Sheppard on electric and bass guitar and Brandon Astin on percussion. Guest performers for the night were harmonica player Glen Taylor (below right), bass guitarist David Santos (below left) and saxophonist Clay Cromer (very bottom). Sheppard wrote and performed “I Could.” (Middle right)

The CD is available on itunes and 

The Safe Haven Café is open Saturday nights at 701 New Hampshire Ave. Somers Point behind Burger King  Below: Palermo at studio.
