SSG presents Tom TC Carpenter!

Enzo's , 382 US-46, Budd Lake, New Jersey 07828

Tom TC Carpenter will be our feature this month!!

Tom's influences and inspirations vary from 60's and 70's rock to early country and Americana. His current songwriting has shifted into exploring the stories of local history - how the railways, the immigrants, and the steel industry shaped the region.

In September of 2016 Tom released his debut CD - "Look Inside" - of original songs consisting of four studio cuts and four live cuts.

"Tom is a craftsman, a wordsmith and a teller of tales. His music is at once pleasing and transportive. Beyond that he's an asset and an advocate for the music community."
- Brian McCloskey, Foul Rift Productions https://www.tomtccarpenter.com/

SSG presents Jeiris Cook!

Enzo's , 382 US-46, Budd Lake, New Jersey 07828

April will feature Jeiris Cook Music!

Raised on a musical diet of vintage Motown and 90s RnB, Jeiris Cook is serving up his own blend of music therapy with a dash of folk. Combine that with his percussive style of play, and you become witness to a performance that is both unique and memorable. The mission is simple, to produce music that is therapeutic in the way that some foods are. After all, music IS food for the soul. So eat up, because music therapy begins here! http://www.jeiriscook.com

“An artist with the story-telling ability of Bob Dylan and the vocal chops of Marvin Gaye, Jeiris transports you to wonderful childhood memories at Grandma's house, the smell of fresh-baked biscuits wafting through the air and Summer days spent with friends and family, lazily sitting on the porch.” - Spring Nicole
