Upcoming Events:

Join us at THE OLD STONE on Friday, December 1st to enjoy the music of Red Apple Rest. Cover charge will be $10 and will include great coffee, soft drinks and something yummy to eat.


Red Apple Rest is an Allendale & Ramsey-based band.  Their set list is centered around a core of 70’s and 80’s folk-rock tunes (think Eagles, Beatles, Everly Brothers, Elton John, and Grateful Dead) with some excursions to standout tunes of earlier decades and a few recently released songs.  The hallmark of Red Apple Rest is their pleasing trio and quartet vocal harmonies and thoughtful instrument musicianship which makes them favorites at the venues like the Allendale Bar & Grill and the Torne Valley Vineyards. The band consists of Bob Copeland (acoustic guitar and cajon), John Kiely (acoustic and electric guitar), Brian Dillon (lead guitar) and Ted Clark (stand-up bass and bass guitar).
