New Jersey's Got Talent | Music

Guitar Amplifiers

 

Many Talented Musical Performers Are From New Jersey


New Jersey has always been loaded with great talent in many different musical genres. 

New Jersey has so many different kinds of music because it is a very diverse state. 

 

You can listen to all kinds of music here, particularly with the influence of the New Jersey shore!

 

There is The Boss (from Freehold), Bruce Springsteen



There is The Chairman of the Board (from Hoboken), Frank Sinatra



There is the band Bon Jovi, formed in Sayreville! 



There are the “Jersey Boys” originating in Newark - The Four Seasons



Don't forget Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, the Pride of the Jersey Shore


 

You have probably heard of all those talented performers.

 

But ladies and gentlemen, I now introduce to you: The Whiptones

 

The Whiptones are a teenage Doo Wop acappella quartet from Whippany, New Jersey!

 

Whippany is a section of Hanover Township, New Jersey. I grew up in the next town.

 

This type of singing demands that the singers possess good voices, as there is no musical accompaniment.

 

The Whiptones are starting to get a lot of attention from the New Jersey/New York media. 

 

Here they are at the recent Whippany Park High School graduation - three of them graduated, one is still a high school student.




Here they are on local television discussing singing the National Anthem at the Mets 2014 season home opener: 



They auditioned several times against stiff competition for the honor of singing at the Mets home opener, and they won! They were thrilled! 

 

Here they are:



Here are a couple more videos for you to enjoy!
