Who Is the Most Famous Band From the Garden State?
I can honestly say I am a music lover. I can listen to music 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In fact, my love of music is one of the main reasons I first got into the radio business in the first place.
There's a new list out from Thrillist which ranks the best bands from every single state. According to the website, some if the criteria use to determine the best band status includes groups only, the band must have been formed or based in that state, influence and popularity of the band.
It's no surprise here that according to the list, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are the most popular band in New Jersey. The Boss as a solo act is now breaking records on Broadway!
Here's a few more best bands from all over the U.S.:
California - The Beach Boys
Delaware - George Thorogood and the Destroyers (I love this band and have seen them lots of times live)
Florida - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers ( R.I.P. Tom Petty)
Illinois - Earth Wind & Fire
Indiana - Jackson 5
Michigan - The Temptations
Minnesota - Prince and the Revolution (Of course)
Pennsylvania - The Roots (Now the house band on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show)
