Crowd Noise: Live from Asbury Park

Greatest Live Recordings from venues across the country’s most thriving live music scene.

April 2, 2020 - Asbury Park, NJ: Changing times call for new ways to experience the same musical energy that we love. Today, Telegraph Hill Records releases ​Crowd Noise: Live from Asbury Park​, a new playlist of live recordings from the hottest venues in New Jersey. This carefully curated playlist intends to continue spreading that special feeling from “live” music by including recordings direct from the country’s most thriving live local music scene. Just close your eyes and let the music on ​Crowd Noise​ take you back through the history of our favorite venues around the Asbury Park Music Scene with some of the area's most essential local legends and current favorites!

“There’s a reason the nightlife in Asbury is so vibrant” explains Telegraph Hill Records co-founder and head engineer Joe Pomarico. “The musicians here cut their teeth in front of an audience. From Inkwell open mics to the famed Stone Pony, they’ve played and won over every kind of audience you can imagine, with music, personality and stage presence.” After years of supporting artists in the studio and as a label, Pomarico recalls lugging countless pounds of cumbersome gear to even the smallest of venues like the Asbury Park Music Foundation or the Asbury Park Yacht Club just to capture what this scene was really all about: ​Live Music​.

He goes on to point out proudly, “Among Bruce Springsteen’s many live albums available on streaming services now, only two tracks were actually recorded in Asbury Park! I’m sure there are more people out there that will hear what I hear on this playlist - the history of Rock and Roll being made in front of the discerning local crowds that make or break a band’s success.”

Telegraph Hill Records has most recently released an entire live album ​Levy and the Oaks’ “Live from Asbury Park”​ from their summer residency at the Asbury Park Yacht Club, with more live recordings on the way!
