Hoboken All Star Music Jam
Hoboken All Star Music Jam – March 14, 2015 – Elks Lodge
Hoboken has seen a huge transformation when it comes to “things to do,” the types of people that choose to live here, and the overall “gentrification” for lack of a better word. The “old days” are essentially gone, and that applies to most of the country as well. Perhaps technology is to blame (fakebook). Or political correctness. Whatever the reason – there are still people who long for days that have disappeared right under their noses. Thank God they can still remember!
One of those “changes” is in the music scene. It’s just not the same as it used to be – when “buzz” was created on the sidewalks, dark clubs and face-to-face instead of via some slick marketing, text messages or social media “likes.” Not saying there aren’t any decent local musicians anymore (like Wyland for instance) – but that “grunge” aspect and true “organic” authenticity is just absent. Everything is so frickin’ “polished” these days, right?
Well – a bunch of “old school” Hoboken musicians are looking to REVIVE that (even if just temporarily) as the buzz is certainly building for what is looking to be the biggest cultural event in Hoboken in 2015 (for generations above the millennials). It’s the Hoboken All Star Music Jam – which is taking place at the Hoboken Elks Lodge No. 74 on Saturday, March 14, 2015.
It will feature some of the popular Hoboken bands from decades ago, with reunions of:
- Mad Dog Mary
- and many more!
Here’s an example of what you can expect (was during a recent rehearsal):
Looks like it will be a good time for sure. Let’s hope to avoid any heart attacks!
