  • jersey syndicate bio

    The Jersey Syndicate is a 6 piece, female fronted rock band formed in 2006 by former "Without Love" drummer Mike Sasso. The original lineup only lasted one show, after which Mike replaced the full lineup with what he describes as "the best bunch of guys that I've ever had the pleasure to work with!"

    Since then, the band has grabbed the music scene by the horns, and hasn't let go. With a sound compared to Bon Jovi meets Sugarland, the band has rose to the top of the original music scene. They have already amassed a resume to make other bands jealous.

    Their first gig was at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, playing to over 2500 screaming fans. They have also had the privilege to share the stage with over 35 national recording acts, including the Gin Blossoms, Blues Traveler, Ryan Cabrera, Fountains of Wayne, American Idol's Constantine Maroulis, Country star Charlie Worsham, 80's rockers Eddie Money, 38 Special, Edgar Winter, Night Ranger & Extreme, just to name a small few.

    The Jersey Syndicate has also had the privilege to play at the 1st annual Rocklahoma Music Festival in Pryor Creek, Oklahoma. The festival featured performances by some of the top 80's hair bands. (Poison, Ratt, Firehouse, Winger, Warrant, White Lion, & Dokken, were just a few of the bands to perform. )

    The festival proved to be very beneficial to the band. Here's some key points that the band is very proud of......

    *Aside from Skid Row, The Jersey Syndicate was the only band from NJ invited to play this event.
    *Aside from Skid Row and Twisted Sister, The Jersey Syndicate was the only band on the East Coast invited to play this event.
    *The Jersey Syndicate was the only band, both local and national, to play 2 days in a row.
    *The Jersey Syndicate was the only band, both local and national, to be female fronted.
    *The Jersey Syndicate was the only unsigned act invited to play this event. (all the other local/unsigned bands had to wincontests to get their spots to play!)

    In 2010 The Jersey Syndicate released their self titled debut cd with tracks mixed and produced by famed record producer, Beau Hill. (Stevie Nicks, Alice Cooper, Joe Crocker, Warrant, Winger, RATT, etc…..)

    In 2011 The Jersey Syndicate was invited to perform at the 52nd annual KABOOM Fireworks on the Navisink River in Red Bank NJ. (No other original act was invited to play on the river.)

    The Jersey Syndicate has had featured stories written on them in such publications as The Asbury Park Press, The Aquarian Arts Weekly, The Examiner, The Hub, The Independent, The News Transcript, The Sentinel, The Tri-Town News, The Press of Atlantic City, Hellomusic.com, The Jersey Shore Rag, Jersey Beat Music Fanzine, Florida Music Magazine, The Jersey Shore Metromix, Rockeyez Webzine, Rock Hard Magazine, NJ Underground Magazine, Muen Magazine, Bravewords.com, Hellomusic.com, & NJ.com.

    They have also appeared on various radio & internet radio stations, some of which include WRFF-104.5FM (a Clearchannel owned station), WZZO-95.1FM, WNNJ-103.7FM, WDAS-105.3FM, KWSS-106.7FM, WPNR-90.7FM, WVOX-1460AM, Banana Peel Radio (a Vancouver Canada based station), Cut-n-Dry Talent Radio (an iTunes podcast), Aiiradio.net (a UK based station), & Cyberstorm Radio.

    What's next on the horizon is anybody's guess. But if the path the guys are going on continues, it's sure to be an amazing journey. And we'd like to take you along with us, if just for 45 minuets at a time......
