Shore Blue Band

Blues and nothing but the blues!

 SBB knows how to give folks what they want: music to move to! The quintet recently finished up their first record of original work. They continue to introduce new original songs at their gigs, looking to future recordings. The timeless two-guitar attack of Tom Brennan and Steve Smith is complimented by Gary Neuwirth's sparkling harmonica playing. The rock-solid foundation of Paul L. Ulinski on bass & Chris Martell on drums provide the backbone.

Brian Brazil & The Hard Case Blues Band

Extreme Harp Blues

Harmonica Master Brian Brazil has two distinct recognizable qualities: his signature trademark of playing intricate, melodic, fiery solos and a commanding baritone voice full of powerful soul. His control of a Diatonic Harmonica is so articulate that it is often mistaken for a Chromatic Harmonica. Comparing him to other Harmonica players isn't easy due the diversity of musical styles he has mastered including Blues, Country, Bluegrass, Rock, Soul and Roots music.

Incinerators

Hot & Steamy Blues

One of the most entertaining high energy blues bands in the area, The Incinerators can be counted on to uncompromisingly play the music they love; hard driving blues. If you're a fan of searing guitars, blistering harmonica and smoky vocals all played over a foot stomping back beat, then you're going to really enjoy these guys. Their music "aims at the feet" so be forewarned and bring your dancing shoes because you can bet you're going to be out on the floor joining in on the fun. Check them out, you will very happy you did.

Billy Walton Band

Guitar hero fronting an old-school rock'n'soul band

 They say you should be able to give a bullet point to describe a band. How lame is that… we could try… how about "Jimi Ray Clapton"…. or "Exile on E Street"…. either way, if you hang with the Billy Walton Band we will take you on a journey covering the American rock n blues landscape. With his guitar, Billy will shuffle off to Chicago…we'll pick up the horns in Detroit and make our way down to New Orleans for some gumbo. Hurricane Billy will then whisk you up the coast and roll the dice in AC before landing in Asbury Park.
Come along for the ride!

Matt O'Ree Band

Screaming Blues Ruck

The band takes their fans on a ride that hasn't been heard or seen at this level since the '70s. Their live show is like revisiting a Zeppelin concert at the Garden, and with Eric Safka on Hammond B3, Scott Bennert on bass, and John Hummel on drums, they've built a foundation that can hold up the biggest house on the block. After years of honing their craft, the Matt O'Ree Band is about to become an overnight success. Get M.O.B.'d up with New Jersey's next great export.
