Ship Bottom — HOME BASE: New Jersey

STYLE: Covers of the essential party music, current and old-school, occasionally country.

LINEUP: Molly Serena Dorsman, lead vocals, acoustic guitar, piano; Joe Degennaro, lead vocals, drums, guitar; Andrew Alfano, lead guitar, vocals; Ben Degennaro, lead vocals, bass, production; Dennis Zimmer, drums, vocals.

INSIDE TRACK: The Benjamins self-produced and released its debut album, Go, in 2004 and its second original album, Chronicles of the Garden State, in 2007 via Core Records.

FUN FACT: Joe D. is a self-described “Bon Jovi freak” – like, on the deep catalog level.

TWO’S TAKE: Since it was first formed in 1999, the band has stayed dedicated to its calling, evolving and changing as needed all the while. That’s admirable.
