Tuckerton — The entertainment scene on Long Beach Island may seem like it’s in hibernation, but the live music never stops at Lizzie Rose Music Room in Tuckerton. Here’s a look at what’s coming up through January. All shows start at 7:30 p.m. but where otherwise noted. Tickets range from $20 to $40 and may be purchased at the box office or online at lizzierosemusic.com.

This Saturday, Lizzie Rose presents Professor Louie and the Crowmatix, with Woodstock Horns. It’s an evening of tribute to The Band and Bob Dylan. The Grammy-nominated group out of Woodstock, N.Y., plays 150 shows a year in the U.S. and worldwide, celebrating the music of The Band, with a repertoire steeped in rock ’n’ roll, blues, gospel and American roots.

The following night catch Eric Andersen, featuring Eric Lee. Andersen is a singer-songwriter who got his start in the Greenwich Village scene of the 1960s. His songs have been recorded by Bob Dylan and other legends. The show starts at 7.

Jan. 20 is Open Mic Monday, with an excellent sound system and support provided. Doors/load-in at 6:30, with performances from 7 to 9:30 p.m. BYOB. Food provided by The Greenhouse Café of Ship Bottom. Admission is $5.

The “Shakey” show, with opener Jerzy Jung, takes the stage Saturday, Jan. 25, for “an evening with Neil Young – almost!” New Jersey performer “Briz,” regarded as the most authentic Neil Young voice nationwide, has crafted a career from his remarkable voice impersonations of Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, James Taylor and countless others – but none so convincingly real as his Neil Young.

On Sunday, Jan. 26, West Coast blues guitar legend Junior Watson teams up with East Coast blues sensation Dean Shot, on tour in support of Junior’s new record, Ain’t Nuthin’ to It But to Do It. In 40 years Junior Watson has reached cult status by melding diverse styles to create a style all his own. Influences include Tiny Grimes, Oscar Moore, Rene Hall, Jimmy Rodgers, Guitar Slim and Earl Hooker.  —V.F.
