1980's NJ bar and Band scene - were you there???
Advertisements [?]
I grew up in NJ. I was 18 in 1978 and the bar and live band scene in NJ was hot. I spent most of my 20's (the 1980's) in a bar listening to a cover band. Anyone else been there - done that? Here are some of the bars I used to frequent and some of my favorite bar bands from the 1980's.

Bars in NJ:

The Colonels Garter (my FAVE)
The Playpen (or pigpen)
The Fountain Casino
The Main Event
Emmetts Inn
The Tiger's Tail

Bars on Staten Island:

The Factory - became Snoopys
The Rock Palace

Fave Bands:

Jetta Madge
The Rockids
The Good Rats
Baby Blue

I'm just reminiscing here and wondering if anyone who reads here was also in any of these old bars or knew any of the bands.

I miss the good old days! *sigh*
