(WATCH) Jersey Rock Video of the Week: Wayne Olivieri "I'm A Music Man"

Rocking The Stone Pony on 7/22!  Win tickets all week on Jersey Rock!

Veteran Jersey Rocker Wayne Olivieri is back with his first ever solo album.  “Eclectic Mind” is a great collection of well-crafted tracks aimed at the hearts of music fans everywhere.  The album is available on cdbaby.com and amazon.com.  The LP is a long-time-coming from a man who put his career on hold to raise a family.

Wayne Olivieri formed his first band, Rockids, at the age of 17.  He immediately made an impression on the local Rock scene, playing clubs like CBGB and The Limelight and opening for a number of renowned acts, including The Ramones, Blondie, and The Talking Heads.  He later moved to Asbury Park, where he formed Oliver’s Twist.  The band frequently played The Stone Pony, sharing the bill with the likes of Huey Lewis, Cyndi Lauper, Billy Idol and a young unsigned Jersey Rocker named Jon Bongiovi.

After putting his career on hold to raise his daughter, Wayne has re-entered the realm of Rock.  His first-ever solo album “Eclectic Mind” dropped earlier this year and he recently released a video for the lead single  “I’m A Music Man”.  The video is a well-shot work the easily compliments the great track.  The sound of the song and the look of the video have something of western feel to them.  Wayne rocks an awesome duster and cowboy hat combo throughout a number of scenes shot on the Asbury Park beach and boardwalk. Things kick into high gear when he takes the show inside the legendary Stone Pony.  

Speaking of the Pony, Wayne Olivieri will rock the storied venue on 7/22. Tickets are available at The Stone Pony Box Office and at stoneponyonline.com. Tune to Jersey Rock on 95.9 The Rat on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 11:30pm for a shot to win tickets for the show!
