Next up in our local music livestream performances is Hey Leroy! Tune in to FB or Insta on 2/6 at 7:30pm!

“Daniel Marino of Hey Leroy picked up the bass at the ripened age of 14.

After persuading his parents that a bass wouldn’t be another hobby to fizzle out, Dan kept his word and shocked the everyone with his tremendous musical abilities.

Fast forward several years later and Marino has created two bands; The Ocean Heirs, and Hey Leroy!

Performing at venues such as The Stone Pony, The Saint, and Starland Ballroom, there’s no stopping this multitalented musician who can masterfully play various instruments and bring you to the front of the crowd with his clever lyrics.

Today, Dan continues to keep his dream alive by streaming his musical journey on multiple platforms(Spotify, apple, etc). Since Hey Leroy was established they have released two EPs, with much more to come.

The America Dream Is The True Mission!
At least that is what New Jersey-based artist Drew The Recluse believes, belting an impressive blend of stressed yet soulful R&B vocals over sounds ranging from Trap, Alternative Rock, and New Wave. You will feel both pain and pleasure in the discography of this talented, young, flagship artist of the BLACK SUBURBIA MUSIC GROUP Collective.

Born In 1994, Drew grew up listening to an eclectic range of music. Gathering influences from artist like Nirvana, Michael Jackson, Kanye West, Eurythmics, and Jodeci. The oldest child of a loving yet struggling family of five, Drew uses life experience as his musical guide. His lyrics shining light on a range of themes like love, sex, and blissful vices painted upon the back drop of melancholic and stressful middle-class economic whirlwind.

As an opening act for a handful of accomplished artist and bands like Wicca Phase Springs Eternal & Angel Du$T, his stage performances have been praised for there vibrant color and a skilled showmanship that he has molded since the age of eight.

Take a listen to his “Suburbia - EP” and get swept away into the world of Drew The Recluse!

Jackie June and Rory D’Lasnow Live at Ghost Harbor

Support the artists directly on Venmo.com:
Jackie June: @Jackster1982
Rory D’Lasnow: @rorydlasnow

“Find the courage to speak your truth.” New Jersey singer-songwriter Jackie June channels this guiding principle into her 2019 debut EP Wildflower. Truth has remained a challenging force for the songstress, having spent most of her life suppressing her undying passion for music.
Now, secure in her footing and firm in her voice, June shares her story of apprehension with the world, instructing those both young and old that it's never too late to leap forward into your truth.
Wildflower finds kinship with the sonically delicate and lyrically poignant pop discographies of artists from Michelle Branch and Rachel Platten to Lady Gaga and Adele. And, more personally, June's infectious refrains and whimsical instrumentation harken back to the 90s airwaves that inspired her youth.
Since the release of her debut EP, Jackie has gone on to open for 80s pop icon Tiffany, play @sofarsounds , release three music videos, and tour the East Coast. "Can't Quit You", June's latest single, is currently available across all streaming platforms.
.
Rory D’Lasnow is a singer-songwriter from New Jersey. Rory has cultivated a unique, contemplative sound that has propelled him on to perform at some of the East Coast's most distinguished venues and festivals; from the Knitting Factory, The Bowery Electric, Pianos and Rockwood Music Hall, to Revolution Music Hall on Long Island, and The Saint and Brighton Bar on the Jersey Shore. He has also had the honor of opening for American Idol winner Lee DeWyze, actor/musician Drake Bell, and John Corabi of Motley Crue/Dead Daisies fame.
Rory is slated to perform on the Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival acoustic stage for the New Found Glory and The Early November session in April 2021. Rory is currently working on his third EP, “Songs From An Empty Room.” His latest single, “Happy,” is out now on all streaming platforms.

Join #GhostHarborCreative founder Caroline Davidson on Thursday, 10/29 for a fun session of #Surrealist parlor #games, including Exquisite Corpse:

Created by French surrealists in 1925, #ExquisiteCorpse is a composition method in which each participant takes turns #writing or #drawing on a sheet of paper, folding it to conceal their contribution, and then passing it to the next collaborator to contribute.

The resulting, often bizarre creature is the “Exquisite Corpse.”
This game will unlock your creative energy through the #Surrealist tenets of free #play, unpredictability, and collaboration.

#Masks required. #Sanitizer provided. Caroline will facilitate the paper passing with gloved hands.

Space is extremely limited. - 8 people MAX.
