Firepit concert for WhyHunger

With roots built from hours spent with friends around a good fire, Firepit has been working the campfire circuit throughout the Northeast for years. As longtime friends and collaborators, Jay Marsac and Dan Donnelly have a love of the outdoors and the band’s music and spirit are a reflection of that. When not around a fire, Firepit has settled into a regular gig as the Elks Club house band in Summit NJ. Blissfully unaware of any feedback or criticism, Firepit plays the music they love and have a lot of laughs and good times doing just that.
