LiveStock is an event for all ages, free to enter, inspired by the local talent and small businesses in the Jersey Shore region. The event will include local bands, vendors, sponsors and artists of all mediums. The whole ranch will be fully functional that day as well, providing the opportunity to interact with the petting zoo, horse and pony rides, and more. LiveStock is presented by Chris Rockwell and Eric Mcgrath.
LiveStock was created on the need for an opportunity to give local talent in the area an outlet to be showcased. The goal of LiveStock is to foster the talent and provide an opportunity for their fan base to grow. “The point of it being free is that in recent years, promoters charged people exorbitant amounts of money to get into festivals and concerts that are clearly only there to generate profits. We care about the local scene and its growth,” says Rockwell in regards to how the idea of LiveStock came into existence.
Rockwell and Mcgrath decided to create LiveStock after Mcgrath attended an open mic in the area and was amazed at the talent. Mcgrath, owner of Legacy Ranch, knew these artists needed a bigger venue. “My goal is a simple one,” said Mcgrath, “to display and celebrate the exceptional culture in our own backyard.”
Concert sound is provided by Ugly Door Studio of Toms River, also a local business that fully understands the importance of the event as well as all vendors (food, drink, art, etc.).
Featured bands include:
Amy Malkoff & The Moonshines
The Battery Electric
Bog Iron Bloom
Chris Rockwell & The Stickball Social Club
Joe Miller & Kuf-Knotz

Additional performers to be announced.
