Musician Spotlight: Lifeguard Nights

Enjoy live music at Asbury Fresh this summer! Asbury Fresh is a artisan and farmers market that happens twice a week in Asbury Park, NJ and since Bands on a Budget loves supporting our local musicians, we invited 10 different talented artists from New Jersey to perform each Thursday night at Asbury Fresh for the rest of the summer!

This Thursday night at 6pm check out Lifeguard Nights from Long Branch, New Jersey!

How would you describe your sound to someone who's never heard your music before?

If the E Street Band made a baby with The Mothers of Invention and raised the child on indie rock, Lifeguard Nights would be that child.

What's the name of your latest release and where can we find it?

It's called "Do Rock" and it's a tribute album to our old friend and bandmate John Dorocki. You can find it here:

Who are your top three music influences?

Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen and Morphine

Which musician would you grab a beer with?

Shane MacGowan. I probably wouldn't understand a word he said, and he probably wouldn't understand me either, so that'd be fun.

If you had to get a tattoo inspired by one band, who would it be?

Rocket From The Crypt, mostly because they used to let you into shows for free if you had an RFTC tattoo. Not sure that deal's still valid, but I always appreciated that. Plus I like the logo.

Have you been to Asbury Fresh before?

I have not, yet, but I shall rectify that immediately.

If you had your own vendor table, what would you sell?

Songs. Or maybe tomatoes. We have a lot of them in our garden.
