NJ Musical Musical March Madness…Opening Round (March 16th – 18th)


It’s mid-March, the time of year when student athletes across the nation are exploited on national television for millions upon millions of dollars raised via advertising…money they will never see because it it will be deposited directly into their universities’ respective kitties.

So, in celebration of said exploitation, SIMGE has chosen 64 of the top outfits from all corners of the Garden State and its surrounding areas.  From The Boardwalk of Asbury Park, to the depths of New Brunswick, to the big city scene of the not so large Mile Square town that is Hoboken, representatives from all walks have been shoehorned into four different regions, and we’re leaving it in the reader’s hands to narrow the field down to a single champion…let the games begin and good luck to all.

NOTE: This is not something to fight about.  This single loss elimination, tournament style, bracket is nothing more than a promotional tool for all the bands and artists involved.  Please do not bicker with one another, and PLEASE, disuade your fans to speak poorly of others in this field.  THIS IS FOR FUN…now, vote your hearts out.

DISCLAIMER: Regional location not directly related to the group/artist’s actual geographic location…that would be too hard to do right now.
