Debra Devi and Jaime Rose To Perform At Fox & Crow In Jersey City
(JERSEY CITY, NJ) -- Debra Devi and Jaime Rose will perform at Fox & Crow in Jersey City on Saturday, April 28. The show is open to all 21 and over. Admission is free. Music begins at 10:00pm with Jaime Rose; Debra Devi goes on at 11:00pm.
Jaime Rose offers lyrical rock with strong melodies. The music is dense and honest. It features a thick low end from bassist Jaime De Jesus, intricate and thoughtful guitar from Max Feinstein and a full, solid drum foundation and detailed percussion from Johnny Roccesano. The songs represent a dynamic period of change for Jaime, who is more often associated as the lead singer of The Fave.
Debra Devi's new Wild Little Girl EP is gaining raves for its classic rock/Americana sound, leading to opening slots for national acts like Marshall Crenshaw, Nikki Hall and Devon Allman. The Jersey Journal writes: "Devi stands out among singer/songwriters as a true triple threat: a gifted songwriter, a powerful singer and an outstanding guitarist." In Jan 2018, Devi produced the Jersey City Rocks White Eagle Hall show, a smash success that drew 450 people.
“Fox and Crow is such a beautiful listening room,” Devi says, “so we will be bringing the volume down and exploring the bones of the songs. I'm excited to have Rob Clores on keys with us for this one, as well as Max Feinstein on bass and John Roccesano on drums. We’re happy to be sharing the bill with our friend Jaime Rose, too.”
Good Times magazine says, "Devi continues to gain national acclaim as one of the most remarkable guitarists on the East Coast,” adding that “tracks on her new EP range from crunchy pop-rock (“Butterfly”) and Gov’t Mule-inspired jamming (“Tired Of Waiting”) to pulsing disco-rock (“Stay”), Black Crowes-style sass (“Shake It”) and Devi’s soulful Americana tune “10 Miles To Clarksdale.”

Devi is also the author of the popular blues glossary The Language of the Blues (Foreword by Dr. John), which is blurbed by Bonnie Raitt and Joe Bonamassa and won the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award. Pick up a signed copy for $20 at this show!
Fox and Crow is located at 594 Palisade Ave in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Statement From Chris Rockwell Regarding 2018 Asbury Music Awards
It's been over ten years since I first started out performing in Asbury Park. My first performance there was during the Wave Gathering, when Rick Barry invited me to do a show with him at Twisted Tree Cafe. I felt very welcomed since day one, even though I was a poet who rapped with a band. Nobody was really sure what to do with me, but they still took me in. We all know how much things have changed in the elapse of that decade. We were doing poetry on Cookman Avenue when most of the buildings still had wooden windows, and Langosta Lounge was a shady dive called Club Deep. Now, there are bigger venues with better sound systems, and more money being poured into it all, but one thing has not changed. All the venues are still being booked by straight white people, and mostly older white dudes.
