Jack "Hinge" Pitzer has been a driving force in the Asbury Park music scene for many years. As a guitar monster or soundman extraordinaire, anyone who has experienced live music in AP most likely has heard his handiwork.

Like many of the people you meet, there is a fantastic story of how Jack got to where he is today. Perhaps a redemption, or more of a realization, Jack Pitzer has moved from sleeping in the band van to owning a home with his lovely wife and loyal dog Scout. He has rubbed elbows or did the sound for some famous bands. He has toured both Europe and the United States.

As close as he was to the big time, he was far from knowing himself. Please enjoy this conversation with Jack as we travel with him as he searched for the place he finally calls home.

"Born from an existential argument between the modernists and postmodernists, I have found my home with the post-punks and those who love a good slice of pizza. I live in a world of art in the age of mechanical reproduction and the ever-elusive decisive moment. Punctum and Stadium aside, I like to take photographs of people and things to see how they look photographed. While I miss CBGBs, I think Asbury Park is as close as we are ever going to get to making punk whatever we make it to be. The future is unwritten and I owe it all to Mr. Bradley and Mr. Martin. Let us now praise famous men and ask the little prince for his thoughts. Sometimes I'm on the road, but If it wasn’t for the honor of the thing, I’d rather walk. My loving wife supports this albatross of an obsession and my kids put up with me well. BA, MFA, M.Ed., BCEA, Tri-X, and Nikon"
