January in Asbury Park means it is time for Light of Day and the free Asbury Underground music crawl! This year, Backward Glances is happy to host Rachel Ana Dobken and Doug Zambon.

Rachel Ana DobkenMulti-instrumentalist and songwriter Rachel Ana Dobken released the acclaimed LP “When It Happens to You” in October 2018. You may know Rachel from her job as musical director at famed photographer Danny Clinch’s Transparent Gallery.  Danny appeared on her album and did all the photography for the record.  With a  pedigree like this, you never know who might show up at her AU set!  Rachel will be appearing in front on Backward Glances at 2:00.  Here’s a look at Rachel, with a video filled at a retro roller rink!

Doug Zambon is best known as the frontman of the rootsy punk band the Vansaders.  The Vansaders were just included in the Asbury Park Press’s list of Jersey musicians you need to know in 2020. Get to know Doug when he makes a special solo appearance here at  at 4:00.  Here’s a look at Doug in action.
