Local music experts find lack of venues is the scene's biggest problem

Musicians and music fans gathered at Club Alex last Friday night to hear five expert panelists talk about the condition of New Brunswick's music scene and its struggles in the city today. The panel was moderated by Frank Bridges, co-founder of Alexander Library’s New Brunswick Music Scene Archive and doctoral student at the School of Communication and Information. The panelists included Bob Makin, Dennis Diken, Andrew Spina, Audrey Rose and Sharief Hobley: all of them connected to the historic New Brunswick music scene — but in different ways — with opinions on how the scene has changed over the years. “There is no place to play in New Brunswick right now, even the basements,” Makin said.

Baauer is best know for his 2013 hit “Harlem Shake,” a track that went virtual with homemade music videos.
