Want to Hear A True Story?
One of New Jerseys finest cover bands, along with some intense, creative original work, A True Story is well on their way to breakout to the mainstream. A True Story covers popular bands like Kings of Leon and some throwbacks like Brand New and Green Day.
The entire band has such an awesome stage presence, you’ll find it hard to take your eyes off of them during their set. You’ll be on your feet the entire time. The powerful vocals from lead singer, Nick will catch your attention from the first verse of whatever song they may cover, but the real treat is catching their original music played in between the cover songs.
Their original music has such catchy hooks and melodies you won’t be able to get their music out of your head. Some of my personal favorites, and songs you should definitely check out are: Letters, When You Come Home, The Chance, and their newest song. Lady Like You.
A True Story is known for playing all over New Jersey at such venues as Willie McBride’s in Hoboken; Blend in Ridgewood, Just Jakes in Montclair, and the Grasshopper in Carlstadt.
Before one of their shows, the band said some of their favorite venues they have played at are Shannon Rose in Woodbridge, Bar A in Lake Como and School of Rock in Hackensack where they played with Boys Night Out!
The band’s first big tour will be starting soon, where they will be working their way from Miami to Maine.
A True Story will be playing at colleges, frat parties, and local bars in each state they venture out to. After the tour, the band hopes to get back into the studio and work on some new music, but for now they are just excited to play in front of a new crowd. Catch A True Story before they go on tour on Thursay’s at Tommy Fox’s in Bergenfield where they will be playing with fiKus.
