Two heavyweights on the local music scene, Herb "Bubba Mac" Birch and Carmen Marotta, son of Tony Marotta of Tony Marts. Herb owned the now defunct Bubba Mac Shack in Somers Point and has his own band, the Bubba Mac Blues Band, and organized the Atlantic City Blues Festival in 2007. Carmen ran his father's nightclub in the final years, and helps book the bands for the Friday night Somers Point beach concerts, the Good Old Days Picnic at Kennedy Park on the Saturday after Labor Day and on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in front of the Boardwalk Hall.
