The core members of Promised Land have been playing music together since they were just 15 years old. The first time they played at the Jersey Shore was in the summer of 1990 at the world-famous Stone Pony where they opened for E Street band member, Nils Lofgren. Ever since that show, the Jersey Shore was permanently injected into their blood and they have been a fixture on the Jersey Shore music scene ever since, with the idea to bring the music they loved growing up, to others with the same energy and flare that the Jersey Shore bands delivered for them. The band consists of Toni Nostro on piano, Tommy Dowd on bass, Alex Mahoney on saxophone, Tommy LaRocca on baritone sax, Brian Miesegaes on trumpet, Mike Petillo on guitar, Rob Petillo on drums, and Kenny English on lead vocals and rhythm guitar.
The American Beauty Band pays tribute to the Grateful Dead and the Jerry Garcia Band. They are inspired fans of the music whose lives have been intertwined with theirs for such a long, long time. Born of the idea that Jerry and the Dead’s musical legacy lives on through us, they hope to move you to their rhythms and beats with a passionate outpouring of uplifting and classic favorite melodies that are sure to keep you coming around for more. Band members are Fred Scholl on guitar and vocals, Jamie Lilling on drums and percussion, Larry Brent on guitar and vocals, Katie Giordano on vocals and percussion, Tom Cellamare on bass and vocals, and Rich Brotman on piano and vocals.
