Central Jersey Nerd Wave Ska group Backyard Superheroes are nothing short of a sugar rush-fueled, cartoon-inspired typhoon of fun. Formed in 2012, the band mixes loud horns, sing-along vocals and louder guitars to produce a sound they describe as “the soundtrack of Saturday mornings.” Going to one of their shows has been likened to attending a “marching band pep rally hosted by Red Bull and Guitar Hero.” Combine that feeling with an event hosted by Yuengling and 95.9 The Rat and you’ll be in for a most excellent time.
Backyard Superheroes currently have 7 releases out. You can score them HERE.
Tune to 95.9 The Rat at 11:30 pm on Wednesday February 22 to hear a great track from the “Let’s Get Dangerous” album. Singer Josh Hershkovitz will call in to discuss the band’s upcoming performance at Paul’s Tavern in Lake Como.
Don’t miss Backyard Superheroes at our next Jersey Rock Showcase, Presented by Yuengling, at Paul’s Tavern on Thursday February 23. They’re on the bill with 18th & Addison, Engage, and Corevalay. This is a FREE SHOW, featuring $3 Yuengling Draft pints and bottles and $3 Yuengling Light bottles. Doors are at 7. The first band goes on at 8.
