The Asbury Park Social Club presents an advanced screening of Strike A Pose!

In 1990, seven young male dancers joined Madonna on her most controversial Blond Ambition Tour. On stage and in the iconic film Truth or Dare they showed the world how to express yourself. 25 years later, they reveal the truth about life during and after the tour in the documentary Strike a Pose. The film is a dramatic tale about overcoming shame and finding the courage to be who you are.

Come celebrate Mardi Gras at the House on February 25th! New Jersey meets New Orleans with The Marc Stone 3 Band and The VooDUDEs performing along with costume contest, crowns for king and queen and more! Doors open at 7PM, all ages! 

The Marc Stone 3 Band 

NYC born guitarist and bandleader Marc Stone has spent the last two decades making his bones on the New Orleans scene, earning nominations for Best Blues Album 2015 and Best Bluest Artist 2014 from OffBeat Magazine's Best of the Beat Awards and racking up years of festival appearances and international tours. His albums and side projects find him collabortating with Blues legends Walter Wolfman Washington, John Mooney, Benny Turner, and Alvin Youngblood Hard as well as Mike Dillon, Papa Mati, members of the Dirty Dozen, Galactic, Honey Island Swamp Band, and Bonerama. When he's not on stage or in the studio, Marc keeps the music rolling as host of the Soul Serenade on venerated NOLA radio station WWOZ 90.7-fm. 

After heading the prestigious Big Easy in Buffalo Mardi Gras Jam last year with a little help from HEA Heritage Awards winning Sacred Steel master Chuck Campbell, Stone is making another Mardi Gras run through the northeast. His three piece band will feature one of his earliest Blues mentors - NY State Blues Hall of fame member and revered NYC stalwart Jerry Dugger on bass, and bayou-bred young lion Terry Scott, Jr. from Houma, La. on drums. 

The VooDUDEs 

The VooDUDES are all about big fun. That fun echoes across 22+ years of playing festivals, concerts, clubs, etc. in 14 US States, as well as Canada, Switzerland, and Greece. The band's sound comes from their love of American Roots music from the Gulf Coast. Blues, Rock, Country, Zydeco and R&B grooves are guaranteed to make hands clap and feet stomp. And it goes great with spicy food, and, all kinds of beverages. 
The VooDUDES have produced 6 CDs, including the bands original music: Take Cover, Let ‘Em Roll, and Block Party (co-produced by Patti Smith bassist Tony Shanahan). That CD garnered the band a Gannett Makin’Waves Music Award. 
The VooDUDES compositions have appeared on such compilations as: Dr. Demento’s Basement Tapes #6; Dance Songs of New Orleans & Louisiana, NY Blues, Songs from Food & Music Fest; Fresh Local Produce; Jersey Jams; Jersey Jazz & Blues Foundation Presents, and Live At AJ’s. The VooDUDES earlier CDs are I Been VooDUDE, Wake the Dead, and Night of the Living DUDES.
The VooDUDES have performed as featured opener for these national acts: Levon Helm, Dr. John, Mavis Staples, Branford Marsalis, Anders Osborne, Roomful Of Blues, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Johnny Adams, Jeffery Broussard, Buckwheat Zydeco, CJ Chenier, Commander Cody, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, John Eddie, Holmes Brothers, The Iguanas, Bill Kirchen & Too Much Fun, Rosie Ledet, The Red Elvises, Rockin’ Dopsie, Jr, Wayne Toups & ZydeCajun, the US Navy Jazzband, and Nathan Williams & The Zydeco Cha-Chas.

Formed in the early 1990s, Brian Kirk & The Jirks are one of the only bands in the East Coast circuit who can boast an impressive career spanning almost 2 decades!  The secret of this success lies within 2 basic characteristics: 1) an amazing roster of musicians and 2) Brian's ideals of having fun with the audience instead of performing to the audience.  As other bands come and go, Brian Kirk & The Jirks continually set the standard with tons of experience while thinking outside of the box.

Behind the flashing lights, photoshopped pictures, and fashion trends lies the foundation of live shows: good music.  This is where The Jirks shine.  Brian has enlisted an all star cast of musicians that play with maturity, originality, accuracy, and pure love of the art form.  Along with Brian is the incredible singing of David Pershan and Kristin Grassi, backed by thick vocal harmonies and multiple instrumentation including a 3 piece horn section.  BK&J have the ability to play an extremely diverse repertoire of songs complete with killer solos and great groove.  This allows the band to walk into virtually any situation and play what's needed, whether it be rock, funk, pop, hip hop, swing, jazz, oldies, or modern songs.  Whatever the style, Brian Kirk & The Jirks play it and play it well!

On top of this musical foundation is a weapon no one else has: Brian Kirk himself!  With his hilarious antics and infectious personality, Brian has been gaining fans for almost 20 years!  Constant audience interaction is what it's all about with him and this sets Brian apart from most front men.  Another unique technique he uses is not writing a set list.  Instead Brian calls songs based on the crowd in front of him and more importantly from requests he gets.  Fans are treated more like friends and not just spectators.  The audience is part of the show and this allows a stronger bond between the band and its fans.

The diversity, originality, and basic know how of such a seasoned band makes Brian Kirk & The Jirks the ideal band for clubs, weddings, corporate/private functions, or any other situation where you need a fun band to throw a great time!

Over the past couple of decades, tribute bands have become big business in the world of concert promotion. And, not surprisingly, the more popular ones are the acts that are most authentic. Such is the case with Cash’d Out, a San Diego based band, that channels Johnny Cash in about as close a manner to the real thing as it gets. 

How can you tell?

Well, beyond critics having anointed Cash’d Out (Douglas Benson on vocals and George Bernardo on drums) the “next best thing to Johnny Cash,” and the group having won four San Diego Music Awards for Best Tribute Band, the real proof lies in what members of Cash’s inner circle have said. 

“Cindy Cash came to a show, we made her cry and she gave me a necklace with Johnny's hair in a glass locket,” explains front man and Cash impersonator Douglas Benson. Benson added that Cash producer Lou Robin has also been to several Cash’d Out shows, and claimed that if he closed it eyes it was like “going back in time.”

Once the only tribute band endorsed by the official Johnny Cash web page, JohnnyCash.com, Cash’d Out has played to over 1.2 million fans since forming in 2005. And those fans continually tell the group how grateful they are that Cash’d Out continues to bring back memories of loved ones who once raised them on the music of Johnny Cash. 

W.S. Holland, Cash’s longtime drummer, even sat in with Cash’d Out at a birthday celebration for Johnny Cash hosted by Bill and Shannon Miller of JohnnyCash.com at the Fender Museum in Corona, California. “And (noted Cash historian) Bill Miller let me play Johnny’s cherry sunburst Guild guitar,” added Benson. 

Cash'd Out has over 150 of JC's songs in their repertoire, and can deliver up to four hours of non-stop entertainment, including the June Carter Cash duets brought back to fame in the Oscar winning film, Walk the Line. Cash'd Out also tailors performances to suit any venue or function -- from clubs, theaters, fairs and casinos to museums and corporate events.

The band’s live shows respectfully reference the late, great Man in Black's Sun Records and early Columbia era sound, combined with the energy of the classic multi-platinum live recordings from Folsom Prison and San Quentin. The group's genuine love (and authentic recreation) of Johnny Cash’s music and its universal appeal fans of all ages and of virtually all musical genres makes each Cash’d Out show a must-see event.
