Veteran Jersey Rocker Wayne Olivieri began rocking the local scene at the age of 17. With his bands Rockids and Oliver’s Twist, he played area clubs ranging from CBGB and The Limelight in New York to Asbury Park’s famed Stone Pony. He shared bills with the likes of The Ramones, Blondie, Billy Idol, Cyndi Lauper, The Talking Heads, and a young unsigned Jersey Rocker by the name of Jon Bongiovi. Ultimately he chose to put his career on hold to raise his family.
Fast-forward to 2017: Wayne is back with his first-ever solo LP. Originally planned as an EP, “Eclectic Mind” grew into a full-length album. A clear effort of love, it’s full of well-crafted tracks aimed at the hearts of music fans everywhere. The album is available on cdbaby.com and amazon.com. It will also be available at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park on 7/22!
