New Jersey Stage



While listening to the radio, Jon Caspi -- legendary frontman for the punk-indie band Jon Caspi & The First Gun – heard a story about a tribute party for a singer-songwriter that recently died. His local music scene came together for a night of performances to pay homage to him which entailed performers each singing one of their fallen mate's tunes. "I can't remember the name of the guy or what town that was," says Caspi, "but I was taken by how each person interviewed said how much that guy would have loved being there to watch his friends play his songs." Caspi thought it was sad that the deceased performer missed out on what would have certainly been a memorable and moving night for him. "That's when I thought, I don’t want to miss out on a night like that. I should do this now, before we are dead."... READ ON
