AddamsFest proudly announces The Counterfeiters performing at Charlie’s Ale Garden from 9:00pm - 11:00pm.

The Counterfeiters are one of the hottest acts on the cover scene.  Relying solely on their vocals, incredible live performance, and top notch musicianship, The Counterfeiters will make you think you’re listening to the actual record!  

Whether it’s a spot-on version of a Springsteen classic, a rocking medley combining the anthems of The Ramones with Billy Idol, or packing the dance floor with hit after hit from the 70s to today, The Counterfeiters leave every room they play to in disbelief and screaming for more, each and every time.

But wait, there’s more!  Charlie’s Ale Garden is honored to showcase a line-up of amazing local talent for your entertainment as well.


Westfield, NJ-based Americana trio Little Secret covers an eclectic array of material, from country and bluegrass standards to fresh takes on pop, rockabilly and classic-rock favorites. Ellen Pluta (vocals), Dan Ortolani (acoustic guitar, vocals) and Justin Schack (guitars, banjo, vocals) conjure a roots-music experience that’s heavy on harmony, with Mark Arrington (fiddle) frequently sitting in and taking the group to another level.

The Thingama Jigs

Formed in 2016, The Thingama Jigs are a New Jersey band joyfully sharing Irish spins on rock classics and rock spins on Irish classics.

3rd Gear

If you like dirty rock 'n' roll served with a side of hot blues, you are gonna love 3rd Gear. The quartet are local boys who bill themselves as the "hardest rocking four-piece band in Essex County," even though we suspect they could outrock pretty much any trio or quintet, too.


Since 2012, Shots N’ Earplugs of Westfield, NJ has been bringing fans upbeat covers of Rock, Alternative and Pop-Punk hits from the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s.  Featuring a distinctive dual lead guitar sound, multi-talented vocalists and a driving rhythm section, the band covers well known artists such as Foo Fighters, Weezer, the Killers, and Green Day.  This true ‘basement band’ includes John Dencker (lead guitar, vocals), Jeff Hamilton (keyboard, vocals), Mark McMahill (bass), Joe Riordan (lead guitar), and Rich Vratanina (drums, vocals). The group got its name from two things that fans might appreciate having when they listen to the band.


Advance tickets to the beer garden are $10.00 which include a wristband and a commemorative beer or wine glass.  

Advance tickets will be limited. Purchase now and save!


Day of event tickets, if available, will be $15.
