That seductive siren giving you the come-hither is one Dolores O’Riordan, and she’s here (with her band the Cranberries) in Red Bank this mid-November’s Monday to see us off on a six-nights/ one day package tour aboard the good ship Count Basie Theatre.

Today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit has the scuttlebutt and the skinny on the coming days at the Count’s crib; a week that kicks off with the long-awaited return of Ms. O’Riordan’s platinum-plated alterna-band tonight, followed by a rare (non-arena) appearance by one of classic rock’s ageless golden boys (Tuesday), one of the most original young voices in comedy (Wednesday) and a familiar, family-friendly face from TV and features (Thursday). All this plus the return of Miss Saigon.

As your self-appointed cruise directors we urge you to get out of that cabin and sample at least some of what’s in circulation — and tune in the rest of the week for the latest arty cheese, drinks with the author, a pre-holiday visit from Alec Baldwin and more — right here, coordinates Red Bank oRBit.
