Soul Asylum is an American alternative rock band that was formed in 1981 in Minnesota. The original name for the band was Loud Fast Rules, with a lineup consisting of Dave Pirner, Dan Murphy, Karl Mueller and Pat Morley. Morley was actually replaced by Grant Young in 1984. Overall, Soul Asylum released the triple-platinum album, Grave Dancers Union, featuring their Grammy Award winning single, “Runaway Train.” Let’s not forget that the band had the extraordinary honor to perform at the inauguration of President Bill Clinton. Their most recent effort is Change of Fortune, which was released on March 18, 2016.
English Beat is a two-tone ska revival band found in Birmingham, England in 1978. They create music fusing pop, soul, reggae and punk rock with lyrics of love, unity and sociopolitical topics. The band consist of Dave Wakeling at lead vocals and guitar, Matt Morrish at sax and vocals, Kevin Lum at keys and vocals, King Schascha at toaster, Brian “Nucci” Cantrell at drums, Michael “Railo” Railton at keys and vocals and Larry Young at bass and vocals.
Afterwards, try heading to Cuban Pete’s for their well-known sangria and delicious authentic Cuban dishes. It is BYOB so be sure to stop by Montclair Wine Cellar right next door for your choice of alcohol.
“I absolutely love Cuban Pete’s. No matter what I order, the dish is always delicious. The upbeat music and decor makes you feel like you’re in Cuba, creating a great atmosphere for everyone to enjoy,” said Makeda Marshall, student at William Patterson.
