Those of you who have been around long enough know that Rent Party’s roots run through the gym at Our Lady of Sorrows in South Orange. That’s where we cut our teeth on a wonderful event called Battle of the Basement Bands …We’re heading back there on March 24 for a special night to support our BackPack Pals program … Two great bands who are gonna work the cover-side of the street … We hope to see you there.

We are celebrating our 100th show on Friday by welcoming three brand new bands to the Rent Party stage! First up is The Vaughns … Recently hailed as one of the “35 N.J. Bands You Need To See In 2017”! The group is a pool of influence, from pop and alt-rock to jam bands and even surf subtleties. Next we welcome Allied Chemical … These guys rose from the ashes of the great Maplewood band Gumwall and we’re excited about their set. Last, but not least we welcome The Vansaders. They were also one mentioned as one of the bands you need to see this year. The Asbury Park band, who has recently opened for Flogging Molly and Social Distortion, boasts a banner blend of Bouncing Souls punk frenetics and country-folk twang.
