The local bands keeping the Asbury Park, NJ music scene alive
Taking it to the Wonder Bar, the iconic Asbury Park bar where local acts make their names.
When I walked into the Wonder Bar I was greeted by a wave of electric guitar, bass and drums.
The amps were hitting the sound just right so it was echoing through the walls, you could see Tillie vibrating along with the band's instruments.
Vibrant lights behind them set the intense scene to match the electric jams. These are the bands keeping the Asbury Park music scene alive.
On the stage was local band Sunshine Spazz. The group is made up of three Toms River natives including Jamie Lawler and brothers Ryan and Michael Rutter.
I got the chance to catch up with Ryan and Michael from Sunshine Spazz at the Sea.Hear.Now Festival on Sunday.
We talked about how their band formed, what the music scene in Asbury Park is like, and the places you have to visit in New Jersey, and their thoughts on the Sea.Hear.Now Festival.
