Two famous venues that I have personally played more than a few times are still there as well; The Stone Pony and The Saint.
There are some great folks doing a wonderful job with bringing awareness to the Asbury music scene which helps to get people down to check it all out. One guy doing his part and supporting the scene is Ken Shane. He writes for a site called Popdose.
Russo Music has also chosen Asbury Park for it’s new store location. You can check the store out at 639 Cookman Avenue. Scott Engel the manager is a great guy and has been working very hard on this project….he NEVER sleeps it seems…go Scott..!!
I am really pumped about being in the middle of all this great energy with my 300guitars Shop located just a few miles north in Long Branch as well as playing with my new band the Inside Drivers. I reckon we will see a lot of growth in Asbury Park over the next few years.
