Shoreworld: Steve Tambone Passes Away; Deal Casino – Heck

River City Extension Drummer Steve Tambone Passes Away

I can clearly remember the formation and quick-paced growth of River City Extension. Unconventional and unique, the Toms River group was everything that their suburban brethren were not. In an area filled with the rallying cries of “You Give Love A Bad …

Shoreworld: Michael Askin – Ignore The Evidence

I first met Michael Askin during his time in the Mable and Divine Sign. Askin’s simple and melodic guitar style was a key focus with those bands, and he went on to utilize said skill as both an in-demand sideman and focused solo artist. Soft-spoken and humble, Askin is the …

Shoreworld: Jared McCloud – To Live And Die In Your Arms (Noble Steed Music)

When it comes to the sections of our lives, Jared McCloud will tell you that, at least at first, the pieces don’t fit easily. McCloud got his puzzle-solving start in the hard rock/heavy metal arena, learning to mix and position bridges, choruses and crunchy verses before breaking from that camp …

Shoreworld: Bebe Buell And The Nashville Aces – Prodigal Daughter Returns To Her Southern Roots

When I first met Bebe Buell, all I really knew about her was that she was part of New York’s underground elite. She was the stuff of glossy magazines, late night parties with Mick Jagger and a living breathing queen of rock and roll’s most infamous scene. A former Ford …

Shoreworld: The Satisfactors – Bongo Boy Records Unleashes Tough Love Salvation

Dubbing themselves “New Jersey’s First Supergroup,” The Satisfactors are on the rock and roll move to give you what you need. The band is quick to the point and doesn’t waste time blanketing the listener with cleverly hidden messages or silly vulnerability issues about puppy love. They play bare-bones rock …

Shoreworld: Stolen Rhodes – Slow Horse

I first met Stolen Rhodes back in 2011 at the first Liberty Music Festival in Philadelphia. It took a few concentrated listens, but once I understood the influential battle cries of reviving a style ignored by popular music, I became quite interested in the band. I covered their second release, …
