North Jersey Notes: Paralysis, The Dirty Pearls, Panzie* and More!

One band that really caught my attention because of their classic thrash sound was a band from Long Valley, NJ. Where you say? It’s a small town between Morristown and Hackettstown. Regardless of where they’re from, their riffs had a classic thrash sound that you just don’t hear anymore. In …

North Jersey Notes: Stealing Fame, Santino Noir, The Paragon Image and More!

North Jersey Notes: The Bunks, Raftree, Rahway and More!

Shoreworld: Acid – Tales Of Contempt

Bobby Kennedy’s Acid is a powerhouse combo of attitude past and extraordinarily present. With nuances of British punk and Smart Aleck barbs of alt-rock tongue-in-cheek, Kennedy weaves a dark and majestically diverse composite of original material. Flying miles above the current landscape of narcissistic hipsters and talentless divas, Kennedy’s sound …

North Jersey Notes: Fate Of Adam, Robots And Monsters, Common Wealth and More!

You might be scratching your head as to why I would be writing about a band from Tennessee in a North Jersey local music column. Well, I’m about to tell you. Some of you who read this column know I’ve played in a few bands in this music scene. One …

North Jersey Notes: The Blessing Of This Curse, Sekond Skyn, Voodoo Terror Tribe and More!

Working for a concert promoter, you come across some amazing bands on the national level and the local level. A band from Fair Lawn, NJ came across my plate because we had them opening for Veil Of Maya at Reverb in Reading, PA a couple of weeks ago. When I …

So, a couple of weeks ago, the singer in one of my many projects, David Marin, also in the band Ronin, posted a video on his Facebook page to promote a local band to friends on his page. The name of the band was One Hundred Thousand. I figured …

North Jersey Notes: Know Your Enemy, Aurin, Vextion and More!

I love finding great bands that nobody’s really heard of and mentioning them in this column to give them a little bit of exposure. I know this is just a small column in a really big music scene, but like I always say, “Every bit of exposure helps!” That being …

North Jersey Notes: We…Our War, 40 Below Summer, Steve Bello Band and More!

One of my Facebook buds and bass brothers, Rip Riley, has been telling me about his band for quite some time and I keep meaning to check them out, but unfortunately for Rip, I have to put North Jersey and NYC bands before Philadelphia bands when I’m writing this column. …

Shoreworld: The Catholic Girls – Kiss Me One More Time

Like many who know this next Shoreworld band, I got my first listen through The Aquarian’s own Chris Barry. It’s hard to fathom that it’s been some 10 years since Chris disappeared into the world beyond, but his rock and roll legacy lives on and his writing includes some …
