Asbury Park, NJ
With a rich history of breeding legendary musicians such as Bruce Springsteen and Johnny Cash at iconic entertainment venues like The Stone Pony and The Wonder Bar, Asbury Park is not your average town.
Rich with history, Asbury Park has a thriving arts and music scene. Stop by Sweet Joey's and flip through stacks of vinyl records and vintage rock 'n' roll t-shirts. Visit The Asbury Hotel to check out Danny Clinch's exhibit Transparent, displaying some of his most influential photographs from Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Nicks to Tupac Shakur. Outpost, the immersive rest stop for touring artists, just opened on the boardwalk. Paying homage to the town's reputation as a musical epicenter, the 1,800-square-foot space features a Gibson-sponsored recording studio, yoga/meditation area, laundry facilities, outdoor hammocks, grill, and showers, as well as a general store — all for free and minutes from the beach for passing musicians and bands.
Danny Clinch Exhibit is an extension of The Asbury Hotel; the exhibit compiles photographers from one of the most significant documentations of music in our lifetime. Danny has captured some of the most iconic images of historic musicians, shooting the likes of Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Tupac, and more. "The Boss" himself recently paid a visit to the exhibit. And don't forget The Stone Pony: the waterfront club where Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen have played. The venue typically hosts rock 'n' roll classics such as the Pixies, Gary Glark Junior, and more.
