Shore Alternative Presents: The Amboys

“Once upon a time, there were broken hearted boys. Then came words, then in came a beat, and The Amboys were born. Born of willingness to try. Trying to give meaningless its due. Doing this the best they can. Caring for you and only you. You should know better. Better knowing that you don’t. So kick off your boots, and prepare to shake your booties.”

So is the declaration from Asbury Park’s own Alt-Country-Rock foursome, The Amboys C.M. Smith (Vox/Guitar), Manny Castanon (Bass/Vox), and brothers Connor Effenberger (Drums) and Daniel Effenberger (Lead Guitar) recently released the album Everything Between The Moon And The Sun, and the effort has received some pretty rave reviews, like this one from The Asbury Park Press:

Everything Between the Moon & the Sun is a brassy, rousing collection of scrappy, country-fired rock ‘n’ roll. On the album, the ‘boys capture the dusty drawl of classic soul-driven Memphis rock ‘n’ roll better than any group of East Coast guys who’ve never done time should ever have the right to, fusing a gamut of sounds ranging from Johnny Cash to the Stax/Volt Collection.” Steve Bove-APP

In conjunction with the area movers and shakers at Shore Alternative, also known in the greater NE as S*ALT, these guys have been making an indelible impression with their bittersweet brand of hearty heartsick rock, and YOU lucky folks can come check them out tomorrow, Wedensday, March 2nd right here in Asbury Park.

Shore Alternative is a fine establishment based here in Asbury that has been working tirelessly to both export the talent we’ve grown here nationally, as in the case of the acclaimed River City Extension, as well as bring up-and-coming touring national acts through the area. They’ve got a good thing going with a weekly night at Watermark, a local Bar & Lounge right here on the Asbury Park Boardwalk, and The Amboys will be performing live in this series along with The Front Bottoms and From Ghosts this Wedensday

So come hang and catch a earnest true rock act that will be on their best worst behavior. And if you see me there, yes you can buy me a drink, but I should warn you — While I tend to advertise, I don’t actually put out!
