      This has always been the type of column that I’ve had the most difficulty with. Writing about friends who are no longer with us is a bittersweet experience at best. But when it comes to specific individuals, it must be done. That is the case this week. The New Jersey music scene lost two principal members, and the overall effect is still settling in for many who knew these men and understood their importance to the music scene, and life in general.

      Bob Colyard was a music fan. I’m talking about a real music fan. We …

      Asbury Park has always had a long history when it comes to punk rock, and Lost in Society has always been a real part of that. With a killer 2017 behind them — and seeing them support tours for bands such as Face to Face, Unwritten Law, and 88 Fingers Louie — the band plans on taking that momentum into 2018 with them when it comes to musical passion. Having spent the last five years on the road, the band is in top form for this California Wiretap Records release.  Lost in Society is an Asbury Park-based band that …

      The New Jersey music community has always been a positive force in the Garden State. With new bands and performers coming to the area with each new month, music continues to grow and offer a myriad of choices when it comes to finding something you would be interested in. Companies, such as Lakehouse Music Academy, nurture budding players from the very beginning, assisting talented folks with teaching abilities made up of area musicians that have long been contributors in all areas of music. The school teaches instrumental skills, as well as engineering and other areas of the music business. …

      The RocknRoll Hi-Fives have appeared here in the past for good reason. Namely, they are original and filed with outstanding musical wonder. If you want to find the hardest rocking family band in the most real sense of the word, look no further than New Jersey’s RocknRoll Hi-Fives.

      Comprised of parents Joe and Gloree Centeno and their progeny Eilee, aged 15, and Evren, aged 13, the RocknRoll Hi-Fives are the most outstanding family rockers to break onto the scene. And while hardly a brand-new act, the Hi-Fives released their third EP titled the Beat the Sound the Dragon’s

      Kenny Dubman is a bonafide Jersey Shore singer-songwriter who also just happens to be a hell of a guitar player. I covered his very first release, Reckless Abandon, last year, and I’m happy to have him back for round two with his next record titled American Songbook. Dubman has been on the scene long before many of you were even in diapers, and he logged time with the Jersey Shore legends, Prophet, back in the day. Dubman’s “meat and potatoes” approach to music means that his concentration is on real music and less about fancy presentation and …

  • Kat@Tunes2ya Presents is pleased to bring you a brand-new event called   “SPILLING THE TEA,” a Nashville Style Evening of Singer-Songwriters in the Round, hosted by Jonathan Tea at Clancy’s in Neptune, NJ.

      Rightfully earning their place as one of New Jersey’s buzziest bands, Dentist was named one of the Top 10 groups at this year’s SXSW by Mercury News and a darling of critics at several national magazines and publications. Dentist centers around the songwriting partnership of Emily Bornemann (vocals and bass guitar) and Justin Bornemann (guitar), who had been writing songs and performing together in various ways since first meeting in 2008. The band is rounded out by Matt Hockenjos on drums.

      Their new album, Night Swimming, juxtaposes catchy indie surf pop with lyrical themes about social anxiety …

      If there’s one thing I can say about today Asbury Park, It’s that there’s no shortage of entertainment options throughout the entire town. Main Street has Clancy’s Tavern, which although is out of town, is close enough to count and offers excellent local acts as well as guitar stars, such as Oz Noy. Then, of course, you have The Saint further down on Main Street. The Saint always has blended local and national talent and is one of the town’s greatest success stories to date. Cookman Ave. has a plethora of eateries that feature live music. The Brickwall has …

      Asbury continues to crank out great new bands and songwriters that not only show a commitment to writing but also show a vast array of passionate influences and original takes on both new and old music styles alike. Being at the forefront of viewing bands and songwriters that come into the area since the early 1980s, I see both the good and the bad of change and evolution when it comes to new bands and writers that come into town to make their mark. And trust me, it’s a never-ending journey. I’ve seen the good, the bad, and the …

      I’ve been working with a great label called MOTO Records for the last year or so. One of their main guys is Joey Affatato. Affatato is also a member of the band The Carousers. Affatato is an excellent musician and a keen record label A&R lead man. His work for Jon Leidesdorff’s Lakehouse recording Studios and the label under that company has been fruitful indeed. MOTO Records is a collaborative, independent record label that provides our emerging original artists with state-of-the-art recording opportunities at Lakehouse Recording Studios, as well as access to professional resources and continued artistic guidance before, …

      ACID returns with their third and best full-length release titled The In Part Of The Out Crowd.

      Available this fall on Main Man Records; the album will be distributed worldwide through the MVD Entertainment Group. The In Part Of The Out Crowd is the follow-up to their critically acclaimed sophomore effort, Tales Of Contempt, whose songs were prominently featured throughout the award-winning independent film, Let Me Down Hard, (starring Keith Roth) in 2016.

      The In Part Of The Out Crowd is by far ACID’s most cohesive, catchiest, and all around best sounding batch of songs …

      Avery Mandeville is a songwriter and performer from New Jersey. Her debut EP, Salty, was released in early 2017, followed by LP Happy Birthday, Avery Jane in July 2018. Her unique vocal style has been compared to Roy Orbison, Angel Olsen, silk taffeta, a river of bourbon, and a car backing out of a gravel driveway. Her music is of personal and political concern, with a penchant for brutal honesty, imagery, profanity, and the taboo. In 2011, the ‘Boss’ Bruce Springsteen, gave Mandeville $20 while she busked with friends on the sidewalk. She has been nominated for multiple …

  • Massive tribute festival with an important cause to hit Seaside Heights this fall, on September 29.

     

      As the hot, summer heat finally begins to dissipate, music festivals still rule the current day. One, in particular, has been going on every year for half a decade. Rock the Farm has been digging in and offering excellent musical entertainment while giving back to the community in their own diverse way. Every year they come up with new ways to attract crowds and raise money for worthwhile charities. It’s been everywhere from Colts Neck to the now ultra-hip tourist town of …

      Lazlo has been running this next Shoreworld benefit for several years now. Battling Spondylitis with the able assistance of area musicians has been his mode of operation since before I even knew him. From hard rockers to folkies and Americana darlings, they all come to aid when the call is put out. I’ve been to some of Lazlo’s radio broadcasts, and it’s a home-spun layout that includes great music, food and plenty of booze. I’m not sure if that trend continues this year, but I’m sure that Lazlo continues to make everyone involved feel like part of the family.…

    Hailing from Lawrenceville, NJ, The Beagles recently celebrated over half a century of live and recorded music that got its start in the Garden State. And their Jersey-style encompasses a wide variety of sounds and styles including power pop and roots-driven rock that feature catchy tunes, infectious hooks, and high live performance energy as well as some jazzy and sultry tunes spotlighting their new singer. The Beagles can tailor their lineup to suit a wide range of functions, from outdoor electric gigs to acoustic performances as either a quartet, trio or a duo for smaller settings.

      “I’m so incredibly excited to be playing Asbury Lanes!” said Taylor Tote. “For months since it’s opened back up I’ve been dying to get in on a show there and now I’m headlining! It’s so amazing. I can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve been up to in the studio. We’ve written some new songs …

      Asbury Underground has been cranking out quality entertainment since 2014. Asbury Underground is the brainchild of Patrick Schiavino, owner of the Art629 Gallery. Schiavino envisioned an event that brought together the city’s art and music scenes to raise public awareness about the richness of Asbury Park’s culture.

      He owns Art629 Gallery on Cookman Avenue and wanted to generate some foot traffic downtown. Today, the event brings musicians (many of which have performed on stages around the world) to the city’s art galleries and city clubs. It’s a beautiful merging of art and music, and it’s popular!

    The Jersey Shore’s first ever country duo, Williams Honor announce third annual Hometown Halloween Spooktacular with all-star band October 31 in Asbury Park, and return to New York City at City Vineyard on November 17 after sold out MSG performance with neighborhood Hall of Famers, Bon Jovi.

     

      It’s been a hell of a year for Gordon Brown and partner Reagan Richards, and they show no signs of slowing down. While the duo spends a lot of time down in Nashville, they are back for a couple of high profile shows that are bound to sell out quickly.
