HCCC to host inaugural "Sound Bites" event

Hudson County Community College, Jersey City, N.J., will host the first of a series of "Sound Bites" events on Jan. 15, 2010, a meet-and-greet gathering and buffet with blues singer and guitarist John Hammond. Hammond will be appearing at the event to speak with guests prior to his concert with the Duke Robillard Band at The Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre that evening. The event will include a Louisiana blues-style buffet and complimentary glass of wine or beer.

"The Hudson County Community College Culinary Arts Institute/Conference Center was built to serve the many needs of the community," said HCCC president Glen Gabert in a statement. "We see 'Sound Bites' as opportunities for the community to become better acquainted with the College and the Journal Square area, meet some highly acclaimed performers, savor some of our delicious cuisine and enjoy the company of neighbors."

"Sound Bites," which has been organized in cooperation with the Journal Square Special Improvement District, will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the college's Culinary Arts Institute/Conference Center. More information can be found at www.hccc.edu.
