Jersey Rock

Hosted By Tom Hanley Tue., Wed. & Thur. 11:30pm

Reunited after 6 years!

In Spite Of hales from Marlboro.  Driven by 2 lead singers, the central Jersey Alternative Rock band possesses a dynamic that sets them apart from most acts.  In Spite Of’s unique sound earned them acclaim and the attention of those on the national scene. They shared the stage with a number of high-profile groups including Incubus, System Of A Down, Godsmack, and Something Corporate.  

In Spite Of’s vocal harmony abilities are nothing short of impressive.  Take away their instruments, and they can still put on a hell of a show.  Their acapella capabilities were on full display on election day 2008, when they performed the National Anthem at halftime of a New Jersey Nets game at the Meadowland’s Izod Center.  Check out the video of their on-court reherasal below!

In 2013 In Spite Of went their separate ways.  Following a 6-year hiatus the band reunited earlier this year, rocking reunion show at The Saint in Asbury Park.  The reunited group looks to once again making a serious impact on the Jersey Rock scene.

Tune to Jersey Rock on 95.9 The Rat Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 11:30 pm to hear cuts from In Spite Of’s catalog.  Band leader Raj Narayanan and singers Davin Alson and Joe Maranzani will call in to the show each night!

National Anthem

We were a band for over a decade. And during that tenure, we got the chance to experience some really timeless moments. This ranks right on top of that list. Election Day 2008. We were awarded the opportunity to perform the National Anthem and a song during halftime at a New Jersey Nets Game at the now defunct Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ. Here is the sound check footage of the National Anthem. Help us make some new memories. We're coming back around! Join us on Friday July 12, 2019 at THE SAINT in Asbury Park, NJ.
