This group is for people like me, whose spirits are lifted after going out and hearing good music and sharing time with like minded individuals. I started this group to find other music lovers in NJ. Most of the groups that I was searching for were in NYC. I wanted to highlight the people and places that play the kind of music you have to dig deep for.
Everyone has their own defintion of good music.
Here is mine:
Soulful/afro house, afrobeat, Funk/Soul(james brown to sharon jones), 50's RB/rock, garage, punk(the screeching weasel,ramones),Raggae,Hip Hop(de la soul to anti pop consortium),salsa,boogaloo,flamenco, jazz and blues.

There is so much music out in the world, but many never know because they listen to commercial radio or commercial dj's. They will only hear the same three songs and never be educated on the real expanse of music out that's out there . I am a huge fan of WFMU.org, 91.1 on the radio dial. They are a freeform listener supported radio station that plays different kinds of music. They play the music they want, not what is determined by what sells.

Venues that I like are Maxwells in Hoboken, local bars in the Newark Area and Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park.
The purpose of this meetup is to bring together the people that enjoy learning new things and have a passion for music.
If you are interested in meeting music lovers like yourself, join us!
Thanks,
Kristina

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
