This is one Jersey band who knows how to keep the dancers dancing.

Bonefide is fronted by John Donadeo who shares lead vocals with Alyssa Beckerman, a veteran of the Asbury Park music scene and Ernie Muhlback on guitar, a North Jersey pro. It also includes a three-piece rhythm section consisting of Kevin Smith on vocals and percussion, Skip Hopkins, a Florida club regular, on drums  and Mike Soga, a member of many a New Brunswick band on bass.
