The Spaghetti Dinner Block Party was an event that was started in 2005 to celebrate Hoboken’s 150th Anniversary. The idea was to recreate a community event that took place in 1955 for the City’s 100th Anniversary – a Spaghetti Dinner Block Party on Washington St. It has been so popular we have continued this tradition, but now the event takes place along the Hoboken waterfront, overlooking the Manhattan Skyline.

Buster Poindexter

Buster Poindexter
Buster Poindexter" (nee David Johansen) first attracted attention asa glam rock pioneer (in the New York Dolls, with whom he still tours) and then as an early MTV idol (with "Hot Hot Hot"). Yet with his big, deep, resonant voice, Buster Poindexter is most impressive as a crooner and occasional belter of ballads in the classic R&B tradition. His ongoing run affirms the point that however you know him, the artist known as Buster Poindexter, complete with his one-liners and longer comic monologues (not to mention his signature pompadour), is one of the most endearing and enduring entertainers currently trodding the boards in New York. - Will Friedwald: Wall Street Journal
Karyn Kuhl
Karyn Kuhl been has a key player in the Hoboken music scene ever since her acclaimed early bands Gut Bank and Sexpod were favorites at Maxwell's. With her current group — featuring James Mastro (the Bongos, and April's Mott the Hoople reunion tour) on guitar, Larry Heinemann (Blue Man Group) on bass, and the mighty Jonpaul Pantozzi on drums — Karyn rocks more commandingly than ever before. It's no wonder the Karyn Kuhl Band's song "Be Your Friend" was recently featured on the breakout TV hit Good Trouble.
Debra Devi

Rock/Americana artist Debra Devi's growing acclaim as "one of the most remarkable guitarists on the East Coast." (Good Times magazine)

has led to opening slots for Marshall Crenshaw and Ana Popovic, and a recording collaboration with Gov't Mule bassist Jorgen Carlsson.

"Devi stands out as a true triple threat," writes Jim Testa in the Jersey Journal, "a gifted songwriter, a powerful singer and an outstanding guitarist."

James Calleo

James Calleo is a singer/songwriter, has been calling Hoboken home since 2013. Calleo’s music, inspired by his travels around the country and the world, is deceptively mellow; the songs seem to start off with easygoing guitar strumming and then slowly, the band leads them into something multi-layered and surprising. Whether the tunes are built from big heart or big energy, they tell us stories. Well crafted stories.

The Joe Taino Group
a blend of roots American and Caribbean influenced music

Sonic Blume
Sonic Blume is an indie, dream pop band from Asbury Park, NJ recently named one of the “Top NJ Bands You Need to Hear in 2019” by the NJ Star Ledger/NJ.com.  Their sound is reminiscent of 80s alternative/synth pop, a unique blend of The Smiths, New Order and The Cure.  Their debut EP “Sonic Blume” released in 2017 to rave reviews, earned them the 2018 Asbury Park Music Award for “Top Young Band Under 21,” and their second EP “Beach Karma,” released last summer, was named one of “NJ’s Top EPs of 2018” by YouDontKnowJersey.com. Their music can be streamed on all major music platforms and has been aired on several college radio stations and NJ’s WRAT 95.9FM. Check them out at www.sonicblume.com.

Jeb Jones

“JEB Jones is a collaboration born out of their love of simplistic melody layered with harmonies that envelop you and make you feel like you’re a part of something really special.“
9 piece acoustic Americana Jamgrass with Sweet harmonies

Granton Ave.
"They may be young but their sound is not! Welcome to this Cooperative music project born out of the need to play"....
Maxima Alerta
Multi-award winning group MaximaAlerta… “Latin Group of the Year” byCommunitarian Media Network; Premio ARTE 2017 for “Best Latin Band”, “NewJersey’s Best Latin Group” by Cine & Novelas; Union City ArtistAward; and final entry on the Latin Grammy’s.   Maxima Alerta was one of Cuba’s best known and loved fusion bands.  The group is now based in the NYC area and is known for its fusion of Cuban Music and other genres forming a fresh hip sound.  From son cubano to conga, from cumbia to merengue, from rap to ballads… all with a fresh modern sound taunting audiences on their feet.In 2005 Máxima Alerta was nominated to Cuba disco as “Best Album Rap, Dance and Hip Hop” which garnered the group great popularity both nationally and internationally, as well as topping the charts. Later in 2009 the group returned to the top of the charts with the song "La Figura" (“Ay Lola”) recorded with the multi-award winning and internationally renowned group Gente de Zona. In 2016, Maxima Alerta released its new song"Vive la Vida" with an accompanying music video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9YEtBVjltIc
Mariachi Artistico
Mariachi Artistico is an authentic family managed mariachi band. Its founders come from three generations of mariachi musicians who have helped preserve and promote mariachi music in the
tri-state area. Their purpose is to deliver happiness with their music and at the same time provide an experience you will never forget.

Sponsored by The City of Hoboken with a grant from the Hudson County History Partnership Program.

This program is made possible by a grant from The New Jersey State Historical Commission, a Division of the Department of State, and administered by the Hudson County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs, Thomas A. DeGise, Hudson County County Executive and Hudson County Board of Chosen Freeholders.

He was known as the other crooner from Hoboken. Michael John Roselli was born in West New York on December 26, 1925. His mother died and his dad split town, so young Mickey, as he was known, was raised by his Italian longshoreman grandfather in the Mile Square City. In his 20s, an agent rechristened the budding singer Jimmy -- Jimmy Roselli.

As a performer, he was self-taught and sang with passion. Before long he was a regular at nightclubs such as a Copacabana in Manhattan. He had successful recordings in English and Italian, in a perfect Neapolitan accent, and showed up on television. But Roselli never reached the heights of Italian-American singers of the day, such as Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Perry Como and his forever rival, that other skinny kid from Hoboken.

Why wasn’t he more successful? Some blame the mob; Roselli had many fans in the mafia, but also refused to share his club earnings, which earned him some enemies. Self-sabotage may have hurt Roselli the most. He had a seven-show commitment on Ed Sullivan, but quit after three shows. Roselli also passed up appearances on The Tonight Show and in The Godfather II.

Still, Roselli had his moments. He appeared on Broadway and sang at Carnegie Hall. Martin Scorsese featured Roselli’s signature tune, “Mala Femmina,” in his classic Mean Streets. He continued to perform until nearly the age of 80. And for many devoted fans, Jimmy Roselli will always be their favorite singer from Hoboken.
