North Jersey Notes: Nalani And Sarina, Diablo Royale, Lower The Veil and More!

Now, I know that I mainly write a rock column, but at the end of the day, I am a dude with eyes and ears for great voices and amazing songwriting. I found that when I came across these twins from Flemington, NJ, Nalani and Sarina. I came across …

Okay, so I know this band isn’t a North Jersey band, but they’re performing at the Brighton Bar in Long Branch, NJ this Thursday night (6/30) and they are pretty bad ass! The name of the band is Continental and it features original Dropkick Murphys guitarist and songwriter Rick Barton …

North Jersey Notes: Ronin, Robots And Monsters, Division 1.1 and More!

So, I ran into Ronin guitarist, Stone, a couple of weeks at the Sixx:A.M. show at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ and he asked me if I ever got a copy of their CD Rise Of An Empire. I told him that I didn’t yet and that they need …

North Jersey Notes: Dentist, Panzie*, One Hundred Thousand and More!

So, there was a very cool band who reached out to me back in April, but I missed their email and shows, but I was a bit curious about their band, so I went to give them a listen. I swear that while I listened to them, I felt I …

North Jersey Notes: Decades, Killcode, Major Crush and More!

A couple of weeks ago, I featured a band called Ender featuring my bud Danny Lavarco on drums. Well, it turned out, Danny plays in two bands. When he emailed me about Ender, he also emailed me to let me know about his other band Decades, which is bit …

North Jersey Notes: Ender, PJ Farley, Division 1.1 And More!

I thought I featured these guys a while back, but after going back and forth with my old bud and the band’s drummer Danny Lavarco, I’ve never featured these guys, and it’s a shame because they’re North Jersey guys and they’re pretty awesome! I’m talking about the band Ender. …

North Jersey Notes: Fun While You Wait, Incognito Theory, VengeanceFest 2 and More!

I came across a really cool band out of Freehold, NJ. They’re not the traditional band that I normally write about since I’m a big rock head, but I really enjoyed their sound because they reminded me of the old alt-folk-rock 10,000 Maniacs with Natalie Merchant. I’m not sure why, …
