Hoboken singer Roger Ortega tonight at Italian Feast

Last year – local resident Roger Ortega placed pretty well in a Z100 “Hometown Hero” competition – and is performing at tonight’s Hoboken Italian Festival.

After last year’s contest – he finished and released his debut album in April 2012.

It hit as high as #62 on the iTunes Soul charts. Since then, he released his debut video (below), sold out a show here in Hoboken and sung at a charity bash in Miami. Now, him and his management team, stylists, and vocal coach are ready to do more shows this fall. In fact, his fan base is growing all over the U.S., Canada and other international locations!

Way to go, Roger!

The “Freestyle Friday” show is hosted by Big Daddy Entertainment and runs from 6pm to 11pm tonight – Other performers include Judy Torres, TKA, Fascination, Boriqua Posse, Hasan and David Eric.

Check their Facebook page for when acts are scheduled to start.

The video I Can’t Wait was filmed in various locations in and around Hoboken (like the Sky Club and The Cliffs Lofts).

Have fun tonight!
