ONE MAN’S JOURNEY INTO THE SOUL OF A NEW JERSEY CLUB BAND
by Dorian Marrone
A DogVoices book? Yes. And No. Author, James Campion spent an entire summer touring the New Jersey club circuit with the band. His experience is chronicled inthe book, Deep Tank Jersey. Campion dives right into the heart of the band. No subject is taboo, be it personal or professional. From Monte’s notorious–some say dangerous–stage antics to the band’s feelings on touring, fans, and each other.
The book shows how the blending of five very different personalities keeps the band in check. From reserved, business-minded Rich to crowd-pleaser, Monte, the spiritual mayor of Long Beach Island (read the book for the whole story.)
But the book is not just about DogVoices.
The whole New Jersey club scene is explored from the inside–perhaps for the first time. Bands, clubs, owners, managers, fans, crew. And, of course, women.
Sidenote: The book is especially of interest to anyone who ever asked one of the following questions: Why do I do this to myself? Where the hell am I? What’s in that? Why is everything blurry?
