Triple Addiction

Hey friends! We are Triple Addiction. We are a southern rock band from Hillsborough NJ. You might be asking yourself "Where does that killer band name originate from?" Well we can tell you it is because 3/4 members are Triplets. That's right, Triplets. Jon, Brandon, and Chris (Drums, Bass, and Lead Guitar) are the triplets and have been playing music since we could remember. Ben, the Rhythm Guitar player, might as well be the fourth brother because we are super close. He has been playing with us since 2012. We have played all over New Jersey from the Balloon Festival to small venues with acoustic guitars. In total we have probably played over 50 shows. Sometimes we have had to play for 3 hours before and sometimes we have been asked to play a 15 minute set. Our main goal is to make people happier when they listen to us play and get to know who we are as people and musicians. We have our self titled EP out on ITunes, Amazon music, Google Play music, and pretty much everywhere. We enjoy playing everywhere and anywhere, and we'll always put on an amazing show. We want to thank everyone personally for their continued support and hope that one day we make it big to repay all over you and hope you continue to follow us on the journey to music immortality!

The Retrocasters

The Retrocasters is a project band started by Jim LeMaire (Jimbeau) in 2002 to play the electic mix of music he loves (blues, rock, country, reggae, R&B) with the many talented local musicians he respects and calls his friends. Jimbeau has been performing in the tri-state region for more than 45 years. Don't be fooled by The Retrocasters' low-key stage presence: when this band starts playing, you will be blown away by the incredible musicianship they always bring to their performances. This show will feature Jimbeau on vocals, guitar and harmonica, Brad Dolin on drums and vocals, Rick Austin on bass, and Freddie Z on guitar. The Retrocasters have been honored to support Operation Chillout for five years now and they are proud to do what they can to give back to the veterans who've given so much to protect America.

B-Sides

B-Sides

B-Sides is a multidirectional unit with roots in many places. We especially try to do songs that are not done by every other band out there - not obscure, but different. Currently we feature a female singer, bass, guitar and drums. There is an immediate opening for a ,multi-talented keyboard player with other skills such as lead and backup vocal abilities - and guitar ability a plus.
