The Heart of Saturday Night
Master Song-Stylist Pat Guadagno brings the head-scratching, mind-bending, brilliance of Tom Waits to the Algonquin stage, with the blood and whiskey-stained music of one of the most deviant and provocative artists of our time.
The Oscar-nominated, Grammy award-winning, self-proclaimed “Role model for the marginalized and misunderstood,” Tom Waits recorded 27 groundbreaking albums during a career that spans five decades.
Follow the misadventures of Cigar Chewin’ Charlie, Jimmy the Harp and The Pock Mark Kid through theatrical tales of bungled romance, late-night diners and early morning cold fronts, delivered with passion and reverence …
Just Beneath the Surface is a collection of 11 songs, and it is the first solo acoustic album that Doug has ever released. Up until now, Doug has been known exclusively for his guitar-playing prowess. This album shows us a different side of Doug Mikula, as it reveals his vocal and lyrical style. These songs are personal, raw and real.
Doug Mikula is a force to be reckoned with in the New Jersey music community. His virtuosic guitar style utilizes a unique blend of musical elements that transcends genre. He has performed with bands like Woodfish, Domino Effect, …
Record label, Asbury Wax Cylinder Recordings, recently announced the launch of Carl Chesna & Co.’s first full-length album, entitled Prayer to the Black Madonna — a retrospective record that is part alterna-folk, part Americana, and ultimately all rock ‘n’ roll. Reminiscent of John Mellencamp, The Pretenders, REM, and Tom Petty, the band and album capture a contemporary sound influenced by the Asbury Park lifestyle and music scene.
“Carl Chesna goes deep in a world where everything is 15 seconds,” said Jon Leidersdorff — owner of Lakehouse Music and founder of Asbury Park Music Foundation. “I was incredibly impressed …

Cookman Creamery, Asbury Park’s artisanal ice creamery dedicated to diverse ice cream styles handcrafted from quality local ingredients, has created a brand-new flavor at their shop on 711 Cookman Ave. To celebrate the fourth anniversary of soul personality, Remember Jones, and in growing anticipation of the annual Black Friday show at The Stone Pony with his 12-piece, high energy, super-soul band.

Hailing from Long Island, N.Y., Davey Jones created Lost Boy? as a bedroom, 4-track experimental pop recording project. Jones is an exciting character born in Plainview, N.Y. He grew up in Suffolk County, Long Island and has been a New Yorker for over 33 years. His illustrations and collages surge with the early 1920s-1950s animation nostalgia. Combining illustration and digital technique, visuals are influenced by imagination, animation, pop art, comics, street art, Walt Disney, Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, R. + Aline-Kominsky Crumb, Ernie Bushmiller, Daniel Johnston, and his contemporaries. Jones has created artwork for bands, record labels, venues, and …
Rachael Zamstein – A Local Girl Comes Back To Her Hometown
I can remember seeing Rachel Zamstein along with local luminaries such as Rick Barry and Val Emmich several years ago across town. It seemed that just as Zamstein was making her mark in the city, she was suddenly gone. It’s been over 12 years since she’s been on the scene and I’m genuinely interested in what she’s been up to. Her new band is top notch, and her manager told me she has new music to perform and soon to release on Notpop Records for this summer season.
Vextion makes their return to the scene with their much-anticipated sophomore release, Vindictive. The five-track EP encapsulates the power trio’s live performance while covering an amalgamation of topics concerning self-worth, love, and vengeance. The band hasn’t changed members, which is a refreshing thing in an industry of incestuous group hopping that I witness on a weekly basis. I see one guy in another band I’m reviewing when I just mentioned him the week before and it gets ridiculous, so heads up to Vextion for sticking together and continuing to make great music.
Vextion consists of Kate Ortiz, vocals …
King Nectar is a high octane, fun-loving, original rock group based in Hoboken, N.J. The members tell me that they met at an Alien Abduction Support Group (AASG) in 2013. Their bio lovingly states that, “After sharing their frightening, yet exhilarating, stories with the group, they realized their experiences were eerily similar. Each had been abducted by the same ship, captained by a charming and experimental alien leader known as “‘King Nectar’.”
For nearly a year, King Nectar routinely grabbed these rockers before completing his mission objective; to inject the right amount of “nectar” into each musician so …
Telegraph Hill Records – Compilation and Live Shows
I’ve tried to cover just about everything that goes on in our shore area, and that includes record labels that concentrate on promoting local acts and performers that have been making their mark in the area and beyond. Names that I’ve covered here include MOTO Records, Little Dickman Records, Good Eye Records, Sniffling Indie Kids, The Bouncing Souls Pete Steinkoph’s Chunksaah Records, and the fine folks over at Lakehouse Music and their bevy of services. There are also a couple I’ve yet to mention such as Capacitator Records and today’s subject Telegraph …
Doug Zambon and the boys from The Vansaders have been tearing up the scene and generating much interest with their repertoire of punk-tinged music for a while now. And if 2018 was a wild year of music and activity, welcome to 2019 and the brand-new release of new Vansaders music. Standstill is their fifth studio effort and the latest since releasing Stuck In New York City back in 2014. This is also their first, full-fledged acoustic-based record.
When it comes to describing their sound and style, the band says it best with their short bio: “The Vansaders seem …
