Jersey Rock Band of the Week: Engage

Competing in the Battle of the Bands at Bally’s in Atlantic City on Thursday October 27.

13 years after their first appearance on Rat Radio, Toms River Hard/Alternative Rock band Engage are back on Jersey Rock.  Formed in 2000, the band played their first ever gig at The Saint in Asbury Park.  By 2003 they had achieved local notoriety and radio airplay.  That came to an end in 2007 when Engage went on Hiatus.  Fast forward 9 years to find them back together, playing local venues once more.  In August they put out a brand new album, “Energy,” a follow-up to 2004’s “Good VS Evil.”  Tune to WRAT on October 25, 26, and 27 to hear tracks from both discs.

You can score copies of Engage’s albums at engagetheband.com and find free downloads on their reverbnation page.

Engage is competing in the Battle of the Bands at Bally’s in Atlantic City on Thursday October 27 for a chance to open for Skid Row.  They will take the Wild Wild West Main Stage at 9PM.  It’s a free show, but you have to be 21 or older to attend.  We wish them the best of luck!
