The FINAL 95.9 The Rat Jersey Rock Live At The Pier acoustic show of the summer rocks Pier Village in Long Branch on Monday August 28 from 7-9 pm with performances from Skyeline, Skrizzly Adams, and Mind Riot. Tom Hanley and The Rat Pack will be on the scene with games, giveaways, and prizes!
Skyeline is an Alternative Rock group from Ocean County. They formed in 2015 from members of Ocean County Vocational Technical School. The band’s influences include Death Cab For Cutie, The Killers, Deftones, Turnover and Failure. Their self-stated mission is “to experiment with letting different genres collide while retaining an honest and human element to songrwriting all while providing an entertaining live show.” Skyeline recently released the single “Three Years,” which was recently featured as the Jersey Rock Video of the Week. You can score a download of the song HERE.
Skrizzly Adams has a unique sound that blends elements of Southern Rock and Hip Hop. In 2015 he won what is considered to be the most selective and prestigious songwriting competition in the world, the International Songwriting Competition Grand Prize, for his track "Tipping Point." At home in a large-scale, well-orchestrated, presentation and just as comfortable performing alone, on a stool with nothing more than an acoustic guitar and a microphone, he will be a perfect fit for Live At The Pier. Skrizzly Adams’ “Stains” EP is available now. You can score a copy HERE. Learn more at skrizzlyadams.com.
Long Branch Alternative Rockers Mind Riot will be on their home turf when they close out our Live At The Pier series On 8/28. Comprised of family and life-long friends, the band is definitely a rising force on the local scene. They’re great plugged in and just as good unplugged. Mind Riot demonstrated their acoustic skills with their becausejersey.com performance of “Perfect Sky,” which was featured as The Jersey Rock Video of the Week back in May. Mind Riot will start work on another new recording soon. Their self-titled album is available now. You can score a copy of it HERE. Learn more at mindriotband.com.
