Belmar, NJ, March 05, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- While the second issue of New Jersey Stage for 2016 includes stories across the state, it has a true Jersey Shore spirit to it. The issue contains features on local legend Bobby Bandiera (Bon Jovi, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes); For Worse at Long Branch’s New Jersey Repertory Company; a featured music video of the month by former Jersey Shore resident Linda Chorney; and a cover story on Darlene Love, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer whose last album was produce by E Street Band member Little Steven Van Zandt.
“Darlene Love’s album has a distinctive Asbury Park sound,” said Gary Wien, publisher. “Little Steven’s production is spot on, creating the same kind of timeless music he did on classic albums like Hearts of Stone by the Jukes. It easily ranks up among the best albums in the Jersey Shore catalog.”
The issue talks with guitarist Bobby Bandiera who has had one of the most interesting careers of any Jersey Shore musician. From his early days with the popular bar bands Holme and Cats On A Smooth Surface to joining The Jukes and touring with Bon Jovi, Bandiera will perform some of his favorite songs from throughout his career in an upcoming show at the State Theatre in New Brunswick.
Local theatre is represented with a feature on For Worse, a play having its world premiere at New Jersey Repertory Company. New Jersey Stage talks with Deborah Rennard, the playwright behind a comedy about a husband that’s been cheating on his wife of thirty years and the wife who refuses to let him end the marriage.
And the featured music video of the month is "When We," the new single by former Monmouth County resident Linda Chorney.
As with every issue, there are film reviews (The Lobster and Triple 9), regular columns, theatre previews and features, and tons of music videos throughout the issue — including the latest episode of Bongo Boy TV.
