Concert picks this week: Beth McKee; Don Soledad, Shankh Lahiri and Kanada Narahari; and Southern Fried Sunday

Beth McKee & Her Funky Time Band: Whether it’s raising money for Second Harvest Food Bank or being the tide that lifts all boats in her work leading the Swamp Sistas network of women artists, Orlando mover and musician Beth McKee is seemingly omnipresent on the scene boosting the artists and causes around her. But the next edition of the pandemic-minded, locally focused Front Porch Series outside at the Plaza Live will be a prime, full-band opportunity for the focus to be on her own seasoned Southern music. (6 p.m. Thursday, March 25, Plaza Live, $15 general admission or $80 table for up to four)

John Gagliano Howell Wrestling Head Coach 500 Wins

From the time he took over as the head coach at his alma mater, Howell has reached unprecedented heights and become one of New Jersey’s best wrestling programs. Now, John Gagliano has reached a milestone no other area coach has achieved.

With the Rebels’ 69-9 victory over Piscataway on Tuesday, Gagliano became the first wrestling coach in Shore Conference history to reach 500 career wins. In 24 seasons leading Howell, Gagliano has a career record of 500-79.

Gagliano was a district and region champion for Howell during the mid-1980s when Howell was a good program but nowhere near the juggernaut it is today. Before Gagliano took over as the head coach, Howell had won six division titles and six district titles while having 60 wrestlers win district titles, 16 claim region championships and 12 wrestlers take home state medals – including 1965 state champion Carlos Fontanez – between 1965 and 1997.
