Lazlo's Corner

A couple of weeks back I asked, "What can do (or do better) to continue to support local music over the next 18 years?", and I got some wonderful responses.

One of them was implemented in the last week.

We now have "NJ Bands" with a list of all NJ music acts we've played over the last 18 years, with links to where you can hear/purchase their music!

Check it out here:


Note we're kicking on 2019 with 2 Presents New NJ Music shows, Tuesday & Wednesday @ 7pm.
