Album Notes
Echoing along the banks of the Navesink and Shrewsbury Rivers, the emerging Red Bank Music Scene comes alive on “Bright Lights on Broad Street”, the debut charity compilation CD from The Downtown All-Stars of Red Bank LLC. The net proceeds of the sales and downloads was used to benefit “Little Kids Rock,” a national non-profit organization that provides free instruments and curriculum designed to foster the skills kids need to lead creative, purposeful lives. Today, the CD continues to be a fundraising mechanism for charities and worthy causes.

Track List:
1.“Queen of Paranoia” – Poppa John Bug & The Jam Band

2. “If You Believe”- Woodfish
Copyright 2006 Meanfish Records
If the Red Hot Chili Peppers crashed Dave Matthews’ 4th of July party, you’d get the Woodfish sound, as the Jersey Shore’s baddest bassist Steve Kalorin rips it up while brother Dominic Kalorin rocks the steady drums.

3. “Telescope” – Xenia Sky

Xenia Sky, a 20 year old college student at The New School brings her powerful, evocative voice and dreamy song-craft to the CD on her cut, “Telescope.” Sky, who recorded her first demos at age 15, won acclaim for her recent national television appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”.

A fun-loving, modern-day college bar jukebox glass-raiser. Kellie Shane (vocals and keyboards) and Breece Panepinto (vocals and guitars) crafted this ditty; chock- full of rousing harmonies and catchy hooks to sing along with at happy hour.

6. “Blue Whale” –Moroccan Sheepherders
Copyright-2002 Moroccan Sheepherders
Infectious drumbeats, haunting guitar effects, and spiraling Moroccan/Middle eastern interludes mark this track from this legendary Jersey Shore band. GuitaRist Steve Warendorf, drummer Craig Smith, bassist Scott Burton and keyboardist Kyle Spendiff authored this ode to Earth’s largest mammal.

7. “Driftin’ Boardwalk Gambler” – Mike Kuhl
Copyright 2013 –Smoke Ring Publishing
From Nashville via Middletown, NJ, the rawhide-voiced Mike Kuhl brings some Jersey Shore Country into the mix with “Driftin’ Boardwalk Gambler,” which was recorded in Nashville, TN. Soaring fiddle, golden harmonies, and whip-smart guitar mark this mood-shifting production.

8. “In My Dreams”- Mike DeMarco

12. “Collide”- Jayson Solino
Copyright 2013 Jason Solino
A theatrically trained singer, Solino mixes both whimsy and emotion into this romantic composition. Asian Flash Vee lends his guitars, bass and drum tracks to the equation.
