Looking for things to do this weekend in North Jersey?
If you're a Ray Charles fan, check out "Forever Ray: The Music of Ray Charles" at the Sharp Theater in Mahwah Saturday night, 8 pm.
"From country to blues to jazz to R&B and even funk, Ray Charles set the aesthetic standard for more than five decades. Forever Ray pays tribute to his music with songs such as 'Hit the Road Jack,' and 'Georgia on My Mind.' Whitley and the Hard Times Band features a stellar line-up of musicians including one of the original “Raelettes” singers."
Tickets start at $18, with a 5% discount for Seniors, WBGO Radio, New Jersey Jazz Society and WFUV Radio members. $15 for children under 17. The Sharp Theater is located on the campus of Ramapo College, Route 202, Mahwah. For more info, visit http://www.ramapo.edu/berriecenter/events/october.html.
