The Moonbees – A treasure trove of folk and indie rock, the Moonbees are starting to make a name for themselves in VA. Reminiscent of the Shins and Television, these guys make for a great night out!
Studebaker Huck – Elements of punk, grunge, southern rock, and folk is what encompasses Studebaker Huck’s unique and raucous musical style. Fueled by their similar taste in music, friends Jarrod Zbieg and Zach Bradshaw started developing material and playing regularly together in 2015. After exploring a few different avenues, they rounded out their sound in the summer of 2016 with the addition of Jarrod’s longtime friend, Andrew Mundell and Zach’s childhood friend and previous band mate, Bobby Finley. This line-up immediately clicked, establishing their signature, honest and gritty sound that became what is now known as Studebaker Huck.
Cranston Dean Band – Cranston Dean is a New Jersey native with an ancient New England soul. His music draws from Americana, folk, jazz, country, blues and pop to translate and transform the human condition into beautiful works of art.
The singer / songwriter has been a featured artist in clubs throughout the Jersey Shore (and especially Asbury Park); including The Saint, The Wonder Bar, The Stone Pony, Langosta Lounge, Asbury Park Yacht Club, Danny Clinch Studio, Brighton Bar, The Chubby Pickle and others. He has shared stages with River City Extension, Simone Felice, David Ford, Rayland Baxter, Atlas Road Crew, Nicole Atkins, Nora Jane Struthers, Julie Rhodes, and more! Cranston’s solo tours have taken him throughout the Mid-Atlantic to Nashville and north through New England to the coast of Maine. In the summer of 2017, with the release of his fourth studio album, High Beams, he toured the West Coast including dates in Chicago, Minnesota, Washington, Oregon, California, and Colorado. The album was named one of New Jersey music’s 17 best albums of 2017 by New Jersey Advance Media (NJ.com). Educated at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia as a jazz pianist, Cranston is the 2017 & 2016 Asbury Park Music Award winner as Top Male Acoustic Act, and the winner of the 2015 Asbury Park Music Award as Top Multi-Instrumentalist.
