Experience More Than One Eclipse This Year

Looking for a modern rock band with a classic rock sound? Strange Eclipse is the up-and-coming group for you, and they rock out regularly at local venues such as Battery Electric NYC, Dingbatz, and Kelly’s. The band has even opened for famed blues rock musician, Gary Clark Jr., at NJ’s beloved Stone Pony. Their first EP, Absence, was released in June, an ironic title as the four songs leave little to be desired from the talented group. To hear the band’s EP live, as well as some classic rock covers, head over to The Stanhope House on Nov. 16. For tickets, visit
