    Joe Grushecky & the Houserockers
    For 41 years, publications such as Billboard, Rolling Stone, Village Voice, No Depression and many others have hailed him as one of rock & roll’s most talented singer-songwriters

    Celebrate the 40th anniversary of Have A Good Time But Get Out Alive, his critically acclaimed major label debut album produced by Little Steven Van Zandt, Ian Hunter, Mick Ronson and Steve Popovich! Joe and the band will perform the album in it’s entirety plus fan faves and nuggets spanning his long, storied career in an incredible, surprise packed 2+ hour show!

    For over 40 years, Joe Grushecky and his bandmates have been the epitome of blue-collar roots-rock & roll. Born in the coal mining hills surrounding Pittsburgh, Pa., Joe has cut a path of devastatingly honest shows from Pittsburgh to Asbury Park! In the musical tradition of artists like Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, John Mellencamp, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen, Joe Grushecky & the Houserockers (and before that the Iron City Houserockers) have been making American blue-collar rock that draws from classic rock ‘n roll, Memphis soul, folk songs, electric blues plus a dash of punk, since 1979 when he recorded and released his first album, Love’s So Tough. Albums such as Have A Good Time But Get Out Alive, the classic American Babylon (Produced and joined on the subsequent tour by Bruce Springsteen), East Carson Street, the stunning Somewhere East of Eden, It’s In My Song, More Todays than Yesterdays and the very passionate protest anthem “That’s What Makes Us Great” (again in collaboration with Springsteen) are just a sample of the numerous recordings that present Joe’s very singular, “down home” take on “living, working, family, politics and loving” in America. “In a better world, Joe Grushecky would live in a mansion down the road from Springsteen….Who do you know who has made back-to-back great albums more than 20 years ago and is doing the same thing now. There’s Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Neil Young, Springsteen, maybe a few more. He’s on that level.” Joe’s music and his band have certainly stood the test of time.

    Mystic Bowie’s Talking Dreads
    with Suburban Sensi

    On “Life During Wartime,” the first single from Talking Heads’ 1979 album Fear of Music, David Byrne famously sang the immortal lyrics, “This ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco…no time for dancing…” Yet all those anti-fun declarations go gleefully out the window when Mystic Bowie, aka the “Head Dread,” takes the stage, re-imagining and infusing fresh life into the Talking Heads’ classic catalog with his high octane mix of roots reggae, ska and lover’s rock.

    Hollis Brown
    50 Years of Getting “Loaded”

    Hollis Brown hits the road with a special two-set show celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Velvet Underground’s classic album Loaded. After six straight months of touring to promote the release of their new album, Ozone Park, playing tight opening sets for the likes of Robert Randolph and Vintage Trouble, Hollis Brown is ready to stretch out on stage.

    The Queens-based rock band brings their 50 Years of Getting “Loaded” show to Asbury Park on June 12. Following a full set of material from their three albums, Hollis Brown will perform the
    Loaded album in its entirety for the first time on tour.

    “When we were starting out, Loaded was an album that showed us how to write songs, and also how to capture a no-frills energy in our sound. It will be the first time we are performing this show in its entirety, and we can’t wait to hit the stages,” said singer Mike Montali.

    Hollis Brown Gets Loaded was born out of a 2013 tribute concert to Lou Reed, where they were first asked to perform the seminal 1970 Velvet Underground album live. Alive Naturalsound Records then convinced the band to commit their track-by-track interpretations to vinyl, which they recorded live over two days in a house in the country, for a limited-edition Record Store Day 2014 release. However, the album soon took on a life of its own, with surprise airplay on tastemaker stations like KEXP Seattle and KUT Austin, prompting the label to issue a full physical and digital release. To this day, Hollis Brown’s versions of tracks like “Oh! Sweet Nuthin'” and “Sweet Jane” continue to organically find their way onto streaming playlists, and remain among their top songs on online music services.

    All tickets from the originally scheduled date will be honored.
