Deep Tank Jersey

Also available at Amazon

A first person romp through the subculture of night life on the New Jersey club circuit with one of its premier bands, Dog Voices, Deep Tank Jersey resonates with humor and sentiment. It is an inside look at life in the fast lane with hard working musicians and the twisted people who surround them nightly. Many other top NJ bands, their roadies, groupies, management and agents are dissected through jc’s magnifying glass. Owners, bouncers and employees of popular night spots tell wild and sometimes moving stories of success and failure in a dog eat dog business that changes on the fly. It is also a story of loneliness and passion in a world where the thrill-a-minute philosophy can blur lines and create a bizarre reality.
