In fifth place, we have... The Ruckus

In fourth place, we have... Bliss.

In third place, we have... 40 North

In second place we have...Shorty Long and the Jersey Horns

And without further ado, the winner of our 2018 Best Bar Band at the Jersey Shore competition:

Stay tuned as they'll be invited to our studios for an interview with me, Andy Chase!

Thank you to everyone who participated, both bands and fans, for helping to keep music alive - we are incredibly lucky to have such a talented collection of musicians in our area!
