Members of our airstaff will be on deck ready to talk with you about beer or music. Also, they love taking selfies with cool classic rock fans, so don’t be shy, introduce yourself, put your phone in the air and start smiling.
Rock To The Newly Crowned MGK House Band
After 6 weeks of grueling band to band competition, one band will emerge as MGK’s new official House Band. They’ll start their yearlong reign at MGK’s Brew Blast.
The band considers the gig their victory party and they bring 4 hours of awesome classic rock hits for you to dance to, raise your glass to and of course, sing along to.
Kategory 5 (our 2016-17 House Band) made the most of their moment by jumping off the stage and into crowd to dance with Brew Blast attendees.
Who knows what this year’s band has up their collective sleeves.
Tour A National Treasure
At the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial not only do you see exhibits of artifacts from the ship’s past, but you are put into the exhibit as you go through the tour route. Sit in the chair from which Admiral Halsey commanded the fleet. Stretch out on the bunks where the sailors slept. Climb into the 16” gun turret and learn how the projectiles were loaded.
The Battleship earned more battle stars for combat actions than any similarly crafted battleships of its kind. It was the only US battleship providing gunfire support during the Vietnam War.
In addition to service in Vietnam. the Battleship received 19 battle and campaign stars for combat operations during World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Lebanese Civil War, and service in the Persian Gulf.
Create Memories While Soaking In Awesome Skyline Views
While on deck, you’ll notice plenty of listeners taking photos with the Philadelphia skyline in the background. Those MGK listeners are looking to memorialize a fabulous day of music, beer, food and comradery with their closest mates as well as with fellow classic rock fans.
