Bowery Presents Enters N.J.

Bowery Presents is making its first moves into New Jersey with the reopening of Montclair’s historic 2,500-capacity Wellmont Theatre in November after months of renovations.

Improvements included infrastructure and structural reinforcements, a new roof, refurbished seating, new bars, green rooms and concession areas.

Also updated will be lighting, broadcast and recording systems.

The Wellmont will be managed and operated in part by principals Bowery Presents, which, along with local promoter Andy Felz, comprise Montclair Entertainment LLC, which holds a long-term lease on the venue.
