Elvie and The Boys

Elvie and The Boys have been making music in the Essex County area for a little over four years. With singer/guitarist Louise Adams (Elvie) and a revolving cast of very talented “Boys”, they’ve been doing Classic Rock and Blues standards, more contemporary singer/songwriter numbers and everything in between. The personnel for the December First Friday performance will be Louise Adams on acoustic guitar/vocals, Jim O’Brien on acoustic guitar/vocals, Jack Bashwiner on bass/vocals and Tom Monaghan on drums/vocals.

The Two Ukes

"Is it possible The Two Ukes..." "The two what? What was that word? Did you say Ukes?" "Oh, excuse me your honor. The Two Ukuleles!" These "uku-ladies" have taken the northern New Jersey area by storm! Two ladies with ukuleles! Jodie and Casey make up this fabulous uke duo. Be sure to listen in for some gorgeous harmonies, exciting mash-ups, and as many My Cousin Vinny references as you'd like!

Brian Rothenbeck

Brian Rothenbeck is singer-songwriter forged in the fires of New Jersey basement punk rock, but these days has resigned himself to write heartfelt, quiet, and contemplative indie folk while still maintaining the spirit of, and the love for, the scene that created him. You can sample Brian's music here.
