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 …

North Jersey Notes: One Hundred Thousand, Scars Of Envy, Xero Gravity and More!

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. …

North Jersey Notes: Driven Mad, Charetta, Atom Strange and More!

One of the bands I’ve been meaning to check out was one of my Facebook friends, Sam Walters, new band, Driven Mad. I received an invite to “Like” their page a few weeks back and just recently got a chance to give them a listen. Musically, they are bone-crushing, …

North Jersey Notes: The Atomic Bitchwax, Thanatotic Desire, Voodoo Terror Tribe and More!

One of the bands that I’ve been listening to a lot lately is actually from Central Jersey, and the reason that I’ve been listening to them lately is because they just released their sixth full-length CD, Gravitron. It also helps that Bob Pantella from Monster Magnet and Cycle Of …

North Jersey Notes: Lion-Hearted, Scars Of Envy, Scarlet Carson and More!

I was recently contacted by Marc David Gambino (I’m sure no relation to the famed NYC crime family) of the band Lion-Hearted via my Aquarian email account. (Yes, people do still send emails! And yes, I do still answer them.) Anyway, he wanted to send me a copy of the …

North Jersey Notes: End Of An Era, Mikell’s Plot, Marc Rizzo and More!

One of the bands that I’ve featured in the past has really evolved and has even become a huge part of the Jersey music scene again. My buddy Zipperhead, from Zipperhead Productions, has even brought my attention to the band again, and I have to admit, for a band doing …
