Remember Jones

Remember Jones

Remember Jones is a one-of-a-kind soul/pop singer, storyteller and bandleader with a throwback vibe and authentic energy. Collaboratively supported by a large ensemble of musicians, the band has played to countless packed and sold-out ballrooms, clubs and theaters throughout the country.

Remember Jones’ debut album, Ladies and Gentlemen, Remember Jones!, was created after raising close to $19,000 through nearly 300 small donations via IndieGoGo. Their subsequent release, Tranquilizer!, was recorded at the Bomb Shelter in Nashville, TN, under the production of Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray For the Riff Raff, Langhorne Slim). Remember Jones was named one of Paste Magazine and Daytrotter’s Top 10 R&B/Soul Artists of 2017.

Remember Jones

n addition to touring and supporting two albums worth of original material, Remember Jones presents and fronts multiple productions which have also gained wide popularity. BACK TO BLACK, a recreation of the Amy Winehouse album and Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs and Englishmen in a 20-piece arrangement, have helped Remember Jones develop a diverse audience. The company has performed Jeff Buckley's Grace album in its entirety as a collaboration with Grammy-nominated guitarist and Grace co-writer Gary Lucas and a 50th Anniversary concert experience of the musical HAIR.

Remember Jones has shared stages with George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Ronnie Spector & The Ronettes, Darlene Love, Buster Poindexter, Nigel Hall, The Hip Abduction, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, and more. In the vein of putting their spin on others’ material, Remember Jones released Ain’t That a Kick in the Head?!, a single in celebration of Dean Martin’s 100th birthday, sharing studio time with Dean’s daughter, Deana Martin.

Whether you see him fronting a piano, a four-piece band, or with a soul orchestra of 25, Remember Jones evokes the energy of the great front men and women, with one of a kind song styling and expert storytelling that keep audiences on their toes and emotions in the moment.

Remember Jones

The Schramms

The Schramms have just released their 7th album, Ominidirectional, on the venerable Hoboken independent Bar/None record label. Frontman, guitarist and songwriter Dave Schramm is perhaps best known as an original member and lead guitarist for Yp La Tengo, but over the years has worked with many notable artists, including The replacements, Freedy Johnston, Teddy Thompson, Soul Asylum, and Kate Jacobs. Joined by drummer Ron Metz (The Human Switchboard, Glenn Morrow's Cry for Help, Tammy Faye Starlite) and Al Greller (Peter Stampel & the Bottlecaps, Yo La Tengo, Beat Rodeo), the three have played together as The Schramms since their first album Walk to Delphi in 1990.

Swingadelic

Swingadelic Big Band
Swingadelic
Swingadelic
Swingadelic began in 1998 as the neo-swing movement was cresting. Upright bassist Dave Post gathered his jazz & blues playing friends together to play engagements at New York City's Supper Club, Swing 46 and Windows On The World, the former restaurant atop of the World Trade Center. As the swing scene waned the band was able to turn to swing dance groups, concerts, festivals, schools and private engagements to keep active.
Swingadelic has maintained a residency for six years at Swing 46 in NYC where it performs every other Monday as a ten piece "little big band."
Swingadelic has seven CDs and has been recording for the ZOHO Music label since 2011. Their CDs have been in the JazzWeek Radio charts top thirty and garnered many critically acclaimed reviews in jazz publications such as Jazz Times and All About Jazz.
Their latest ZOHO release is called "Mercerville" a collection of songs written by the legendary Johnny Mercer who was not only an iconic figure as a lyricist and composer for the American Songbook, but was a celebrity and entertainer throughout the 40's and 50's.

Cliff Westfall

Cliff Westfall
Cliff Westfall is a New York City-based honky tonk songwriter. A proud son of Owensboro, KY, his debut album, Baby You Win, made multiple Best of 2018 lists, not only in the US but also in Canada, Ireland, the UK and Switzerland. Come see why PopMatters called his music "some of the most cunning and richly melodic country to grace us in the genre's contemporary era."

Manouche Bag

Manouche Bag is a French gypsy jazz ensemble with pop sensibilities. They have been the house band at Madame Claude Bis in Jersey City since 2008. Manouche Bag is led by guitarist and vocalist Mattias Gustaffson, and features multi-instrumentalist Bryan Beninghove, guitarist Jim Kaznosky, and bassist Brian Glassman.

Maxima Alerta

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

Gregory McLoughlin

Gregory McLoughlin is a Jersey City based bass player and singer whose original songs have been performed and recorded by several Hudson County musicians, including Ross Sandler, Anthony Tamburro & Abbe Rivers.  His band, Gregory's Lemonade, plays catchy original songs with four part harmonies, influences ranging from the Beach Boys to the Band.

Gregory McLoughlin

The James Calleo Band

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.

James Calleo

Erin Lee and the Up Past Bedtime Band

Erin Lee Kelly is a New York City songwriter whose music has received rave reviews (“Irresistible!” -Disney’s Family Fun Magazine). Her original tunes have earned her national attention as one of the freshest, funniest, and insightful performers for kids (and their grownups).  Accompanied by percussionist Philip Joseph and bassist Tony O of the Up Past Bedtime Band, she creates a highly interactive family concert featuring seriously silly songs and stories.

“An exhilarating live performance!” ~ Brooklyn Arts Exchange

“I love your catchy songs!” ~ Eve Tannery, 69 News, WFMZ TV

Buster Poindexter

Today, the words "blues" and"shouting" are, alas, inextricably linked, but what about the tradition of mellow blues crooners that extended through Charles Brown, Nat King Cole and, in their more romantic moments, Joe Williams and Ray Charles? "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.

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

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.

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.

Karyn Kuhl Band
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.
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

• Deena Shoshkes (The Cucumbers, Deena, RockDownBaby, Campfire Flies)
With Moderator: Todd Abramson (former owner of Maxwell's)

No one in Hoboken ever talked about "the Hoboken Sound.” That was a term the media came up with to explain the extraordinary group of musicians who flocked to the Mile Square City (and specifically Maxwell's) in the early Eighties, looking for cheap rents and a hospitable place to play. They came from as far away as Louisville, Cleveland, and Winston-Salem, or from right up the block; and from the beginning, women played an important role in what was happening there: Karyn Kuhl, Alice Genese and Tia Palmisano from Gut Bank, Myrna Macarian in Human Switchboard, Deena Shoskes in the Cucumbers, Janet Wygal in The Individuals, Georgia Hubley (who'd form Yo La Tengo with her boyfriend, Ira Kaplan,) Jane Scarpantoni and Donna Croughn of Tiny Lights and so many more.

Their music was made and inspired by the Amer-indie rock scene and made by friends and neighbors, influenced by each other, rather than the outside world of top 40 radio and Arena rock.

Join us as we Celebrate their contributions to that “sound" and the path that each of them took as they continue to make inspiring and exciting music. 

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 and Heritage Affairs, Thomas A. DeGise, Hudson County Executive and the Board of Chosen Freeholders

‍Featuring:

Alice Geneseis a Bass Player, Singer, Songwriter and occasional Guitar player.  She cut her teeth in her hometown of Hoboken, performing, writing, and recording first with Gut Bank, then with Sexpod, both nationally touring bands.  She currently plays, records and tours both nationally and internationally with Psychic TV.  Music continues to be her passion.

Karyn Kuhl
Post-punk pioneer, Karyn Kuhl, was a founding member of acclaimed Hoboken bands Gut Bank & Sexpod. She continues to blaze a trail as a powerhouse, triple threat singer, songwriter, guitarist and leader of the Karyn Kuhl Band. 

Brenda Sauter became a part of the Hoboken music scene in 1983, after joining the NJ-based band, The Trypes, as bassist. By 1984 she was playing with other Trypes-related bands, such as Yung Wu, The Willies, and The Feelies. She resided in Hoboken in 1984. After The Feelies stopped playing in 1991, she joined Speed the Plough (a band which was originally comprised of some founding members of The Trypes), and she joined Patricia Shaw to form a duo called Evaluna. In 1992 she met drummer Chris O’Donovan and then guitarist Rich Barnes, and Wild Carnation was formed. Anne Hopkins joined the band as keyboardist in 1999.

immy Roselli: The Other Kid from Hoboken

For more info: gfallo@hobokennj.gov or 201-420-2000 ex. 5100

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.

Remember Jones

Remember Jones

Remember Jones is a one-of-a-kind soul/pop singer, storyteller and bandleader with a throwback vibe and authentic energy. Collaboratively supported by a large ensemble of musicians, the band has played to countless packed and sold-out ballrooms, clubs and theaters throughout the country.

Remember Jones’ debut album, Ladies and Gentlemen, Remember Jones!, was created after raising close to $19,000 through nearly 300 small donations via IndieGoGo. Their subsequent release, Tranquilizer!, was recorded at the Bomb Shelter in Nashville, TN, under the production of Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray For the Riff Raff, Langhorne Slim). Remember Jones was named one of Paste Magazine and Daytrotter’s Top 10 R&B/Soul Artists of 2017.

Remember Jones

n addition to touring and supporting two albums worth of original material, Remember Jones presents and fronts multiple productions which have also gained wide popularity. BACK TO BLACK, a recreation of the Amy Winehouse album and Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs and Englishmen in a 20-piece arrangement, have helped Remember Jones develop a diverse audience. The company has performed Jeff Buckley's Grace album in its entirety as a collaboration with Grammy-nominated guitarist and Grace co-writer Gary Lucas and a 50th Anniversary concert experience of the musical HAIR.

Remember Jones has shared stages with George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Ronnie Spector & The Ronettes, Darlene Love, Buster Poindexter, Nigel Hall, The Hip Abduction, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, and more. In the vein of putting their spin on others’ material, Remember Jones released Ain’t That a Kick in the Head?!, a single in celebration of Dean Martin’s 100th birthday, sharing studio time with Dean’s daughter, Deana Martin.

Whether you see him fronting a piano, a four-piece band, or with a soul orchestra of 25, Remember Jones evokes the energy of the great front men and women, with one of a kind song styling and expert storytelling that keep audiences on their toes and emotions in the moment.

Remember Jones

Swingadelic

Swingadelic Big Band
Swingadelic
Swingadelic
Swingadelic began in 1998 as the neo-swing movement was cresting. Upright bassist Dave Post gathered his jazz & blues playing friends together to play engagements at New York City's Supper Club, Swing 46 and Windows On The World, the former restaurant atop of the World Trade Center. As the swing scene waned the band was able to turn to swing dance groups, concerts, festivals, schools and private engagements to keep active.
Swingadelic has maintained a residency for six years at Swing 46 in NYC where it performs every other Monday as a ten piece "little big band."
Swingadelic has seven CDs and has been recording for the ZOHO Music label since 2011. Their CDs have been in the JazzWeek Radio charts top thirty and garnered many critically acclaimed reviews in jazz publications such as Jazz Times and All About Jazz.
Their latest ZOHO release is called "Mercerville" a collection of songs written by the legendary Johnny Mercer who was not only an iconic figure as a lyricist and composer for the American Songbook, but was a celebrity and entertainer throughout the 40's and 50's.

Cliff Westfall

Cliff Westfall
Cliff Westfall is a New York City-based honky tonk songwriter. A proud son of Owensboro, KY, his debut album, Baby You Win, made multiple Best of 2018 lists, not only in the US but also in Canada, Ireland, the UK and Switzerland. Come see why PopMatters called his music "some of the most cunning and richly melodic country to grace us in the genre's contemporary era."

Manouche Bag

Manouche Bag is a French gypsy jazz ensemble with pop sensibilities. They have been the house band at Madame Claude Bis in Jersey City since 2008. Manouche Bag is led by guitarist and vocalist Mattias Gustaffson, and features multi-instrumentalist Bryan Beninghove, guitarist Jim Kaznosky, and bassist Brian Glassman.

Maxima Alerta

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

Gregory McLoughlin

Gregory McLoughlin is a Jersey City based bass player and singer whose original songs have been performed and recorded by several Hudson County musicians, including Ross Sandler, Anthony Tamburro & Abbe Rivers.  His band, Gregory's Lemonade, plays catchy original songs with four part harmonies, influences ranging from the Beach Boys to the Band.

Gregory McLoughlin

The James Calleo Band

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.

James Calleo

Erin Lee and the Up Past Bedtime Band

Erin Lee Kelly is a New York City songwriter whose music has received rave reviews (“Irresistible!” -Disney’s Family Fun Magazine). Her original tunes have earned her national attention as one of the freshest, funniest, and insightful performers for kids (and their grownups).  Accompanied by percussionist Philip Joseph and bassist Tony O of the Up Past Bedtime Band, she creates a highly interactive family concert featuring seriously silly songs and stories.

“An exhilarating live performance!” ~ Brooklyn Arts Exchange

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

Today, the words "blues" and"shouting" are, alas, inextricably linked, but what about the tradition of mellow blues crooners that extended through Charles Brown, Nat King Cole and, in their more romantic moments, Joe Williams and Ray Charles? "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

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

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.

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.

Karyn Kuhl Band
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.
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

"They may be young but their sound is not! Welcome to this Cooperative music project born out of the need to play"....

Its founders come from three generations of mariachi musicians who have helped preserve and promote mariachi music in the tri-state area.

With Moderator: Todd Abramson (former owner of Maxwell's)

No one in Hoboken ever talked about "the Hoboken Sound.” That was a term the media came up with to explain the extraordinary group of musicians who flocked to the Mile Square City (and specifically Maxwell's) in the early Eighties, looking for cheap rents and a hospitable place to play. They came from as far away as Louisville, Cleveland, and Winston-Salem, or from right up the block; and from the beginning, women played an important role in what was happening there: Karyn Kuhl, Alice Genese and Tia Palmisano from Gut Bank, Myrna Macarian in Human Switchboard, Deena Shoskes in the Cucumbers, Janet Wygal in The Individuals, Georgia Hubley (who'd form Yo La Tengo with her boyfriend, Ira Kaplan,) Jane Scarpantoni and Donna Croughn of Tiny Lights and so many more.

Their music was made and inspired by the Amer-indie rock scene and made by friends and neighbors, influenced by each other, rather than the outside world of top 40 radio and Arena rock.

Join us as we Celebrate their contributions to that “sound" and the path that each of them took as they continue to make inspiring and exciting music. 

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 and Heritage Affairs, Thomas A. DeGise, Hudson County Executive and the Board of Chosen Freeholders

‍Featuring:

Alice Geneseis a Bass Player, Singer, Songwriter and occasional Guitar player.  She cut her teeth in her hometown of Hoboken, performing, writing, and recording first with Gut Bank, then with Sexpod, both nationally touring bands.  She currently plays, records and tours both nationally and internationally with Psychic TV.  Music continues to be her passion.

Karyn Kuhl
Post-punk pioneer, Karyn Kuhl, was a founding member of acclaimed Hoboken bands Gut Bank & Sexpod. She continues to blaze a trail as a powerhouse, triple threat singer, songwriter, guitarist and leader of the Karyn Kuhl Band. 

Brenda Sauter became a part of the Hoboken music scene in 1983, after joining the NJ-based band, The Trypes, as bassist. By 1984 she was playing with other Trypes-related bands, such as Yung Wu, The Willies, and The Feelies. She resided in Hoboken in 1984. After The Feelies stopped playing in 1991, she joined Speed the Plough (a band which was originally comprised of some founding members of The Trypes), and she joined Patricia Shaw to form a duo called Evaluna. In 1992 she met drummer Chris O’Donovan and then guitarist Rich Barnes, and Wild Carnation was formed. Anne Hopkins joined the band as keyboardist in 1999.

Janet Wygal is a songwriter, singer, and musician who has been playing indie rock since before anyone called it indie rock. She is best known for her work with the Individuals, the Wygals, Splendora, Wygalator, and for writing and recording, with Splendora, the theme song for MTV's Daria.

Jane Scarpantoni is a classically trained American cello player who has played on a number of alternative rock albums. She was a member of Hoboken, New Jersey's Tiny Lights in the mid-'80s, then went on to play with other musicians especially those associated with the Hoboken underground rock scene of the 1980s and early 1990s, including Silverchair, Bruce Springsteen, Sheryl Crow, Patti Smith, Richard Barone, R.E.M., Indigo Girls, 10,000 Maniacs, Throwing Muses, Kristin Hersh, Lou Reed, Chris Cacavas, Bob Mould, John Lurie's Lounge Lizards, Boo Trundle, Train and many others.

Deena Shoshkes began her music career as co-founder of “The Cucumbers” in the 80s indie pop scene in Hoboken, NJ, followed by “Over The Moon” (rock and roll for kids) “RockDownBaby” (lo-fi dance pop) and two solo albums as “Deena.” Her newest band “The Campfire Flies” will release their debut album in March of 2019. Deena’s songs have been recorded by Jackson Browne and Dar Williams and featured in films and on network TV.

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.

Did you know?

It is legal to hail in Hoboken. 

Contrary to popular belief or common local practice, it is legal to hail a licensed yellow cab (although not limousines) anywhere in Hoboken, not just at the train terminal. There are 65 authorized taxis. Before you enter a cab, make sure you see the circular Hoboken logo and number.

Only one fare per taxi. 

Taxis may accept only one fare – a person or group of persons going to the same location – per ride. With the permission of the first fare, a second fare may join, but no more. The first rider must be taken to his or her destination first. This rule has been laxly enforced and widely violated in the past, but that is no excuse for continued violations, and the Administration will investigate and take action against all reported violations.

The local fare for yellow cabs is $8.00 or $7.00 from the PATH taxi stand, plus additional fees. 

The local fare is $8.00, except it is $7.00 for rides originating from the NJ Transit/PATH station taxi stand, regardless of weather or shortage of drivers. Additional fees are permitted for extra passengers and baggage (see below for details). In the past, it has been common for residents and visitors to be grossly overcharged by taxi drivers during inclement weather or high demand. Please report any violations.

Call if you see a violation. 

Residents who believe there is a violation should immediately contact Monique Campbell at the Division of Taxi & Limousine Licensing by calling 201-725-7885 or emailing taxi@hobokennj.gov and providing the time of the incident, the taxi number (or driver’s license number or vehicle plate number), and a description of what happened. Residents are the City’s eyes and ears, and we can only take action if we know there is a problem.

Complaints Enforcement Policy

In addition to active surveillance and enforcement of taxi and limousine regulations on the street, The City of Hoboken Division of Taxis and Limousines carefully monitors and acts on complaints from the community regarding licensed taxis and limousines in accordance with the following policy:

Anonymous Complaints: 

Complaints submitted anonymously are reviewed and added to the individual driver/owner file. The Division always asks the complainant if they would like to prepare an affidavit to allow the Division to broaden actions taken at this level (see next section). Driver/owner are also given an opportunity to submit their recollection of the events. After a review of all materials, the Division typically issues a warning to the driver/owner and tracks the frequency of complaints regarding the individual driver/owner. If multiple complaints are collected on an individual driver/owner (typically three or more), the Division may choose to issue a summons, suspend, or revoke the active license, depending on the severity and/or details of the complaints.

Affidavit Complaints: 

All individuals submitting a complaint are offered the opportunity to complete an affidavit expressing a willingness, if required, to testify in court on the issue. In most cases, court appearance is not likely; however, individuals who choose this option make it more appropriate for the Division to take immediate action on the grounds that the complaint represents a major concern and should be resolved more swiftly than via the anonymous method described above. Driver/owner are also given an opportunity to submit their recollection of the events. After a review of all materials, the Division may choose to immediately issue a summons, suspend, or revoke the active license, depending on the severity and/or details of the complaints.

In all instances, disciplinary actions are conducted in accordance with the authority bestowed upon the Division via the Hoboken City Code.
