Join us on Saturday August 18 at 9pm for The Accelerators plus The Dentures and World Famous Skulls.
The Accelerators are a Union, New Jersey based punk band.
The band, influenced largely by the Ramones, was started by singer/bass player/songwriter Ron Nole in 1981 with talented but troubled lead guitarist John T. Hansen, and backed by Dave Ross on drums.
They released a number of self-produced vinyl records and cassettes and were featured on comps such as the Weird New Jersey collections with standout titles such as “Shades of Death Road”. Their brand of fast and loud “power pop” music made them local club favorites throughout the late 1980s.
Anthony L. Rodriguez joined the band in 1991, on guitar and vocals. For a short time Anthony filled in on drums returning the band to a trio, then later back on guitar, while A.C. Krueger joined in on drums. Troy DeAngelis is the band’s current drummer. Brian Sommer of New Jersey hardcore legends Stetz joined the band in 2001 as the rhythm guitarist.
The Dentures play surf rock with members of Adrenalin O.D. and Bedlam.
World Famous Skulls are the fiercest band to ever explode from the bullet-riddled streets of Newark, NJ. They have been burning up stages for years.
