Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Electric Ballroom

Posted on November 30, 2018 By

Beasley Media Group radio station WRAT-FM (95.9), Asbury Underground, and Main Man Productions are presenting the 20th anniversary celebration of the Electric Ballroom, featuring Monster Magnet; Blue Coupe with original members of Alice Cooper, and Blue Oyster Cult; Frankenstein 3000; The Ribeye Brothers, December 30, 2018, at the House of Independents, 572 Cookman Avenue, Asbury Park, NJ 07712. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and show time for music lovers of all ages begins at 7:00 p.m.

Doug Sjonvall, marketing director of the WRAT-FM, noted that original co-hosts Keith Roth and Aimee Kristi created the concept of the Electric Ballroom for the program 20 years ago after a discussion about the type of radio that was missing throughout their teenage years.  The show, now hosted solely by Roth, concentrates on everything from 70s glam to 80s alternative, classic rock, eclectic rock, and punk rock.

Roth said, “We need to keep reminding people of their legacy and infecting the next generations with the timeless sounds. I’m always hoping to hear and share the next Velvet underground or The MC5.”

Dan Finn, senior vice president and regional market manager of Beasley Media Group, said, “To have a locally produced original program of this kind on The Rat reach its twentieth anniversary is certainly something to celebrate.  It’s going to be a great show!”

Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door. Purchase tickets at houseofindependents.com or find the link to purchase tickets at www.wrat.com. For more information, contact Doug Sjonvall at 732-681-3800 x306 or Promorat@wrat.com
