New Jersey Band Williams Honor to Open for Bon Jovi at Madison Square Garden

This Wednesday (May 9), Bon Jovi will play the first show of a two-night stand at Madison Square Garden, and fans with tickets to the show will see two very familiar faces opening for the band-New Jersey’s very own Williams Honor.

Williams Honor –singer Reagan Richards and producer/multi-instrumentalist Gordon Brown--joined The New 107.1 The Boss on the New Jersey Hall of Fame Red Carpet to talk about the big night, as well as what it’s like to be country band from the Jersey Shore. Richards was also an important part of the Hall of Fame show, performing alongside Emily Grove and Khadijah Islah Mohammed in tribute to inductee Debra Harry, singing the hit, “Rapture.”

The band has their own hit to perform–“No Umbrella”–when they take the stage this week.

“Madison Square Garden–every kid dreams that when you have the hairbrush when you were a kid and you are singing into the mirror, that is what you dream about,” Richards tells 1071 The Boss. “It’s going to come to life on Wednesday night.”

Adds Brown: “To grow up in this neighborhood, and to be able to go to the Garden with the guys that with the guys that you’ve listened to and looked up to your whole career is an absolute thrill for us.”
