New Jersey residents love their live music, but the band we never miss when they are in town might surprise you.

New Jersey has been a major music state for a long time. Our place in music history is undeniable. There is nothing quite like seeing a live show in the Garden State, especially when it's one of the legendary artists who are from New Jersey.
