The Stone Pony is the perfect venue for touring bands swinging through New Jersey and lesser known acts looking to make some noise. It’s also an amazing spot to throw a party—we’ve hosted weddings, sweet sixteens, bar/bat mitzvahs, birthdays and lots of other special occasions.

Local Bands

We’re big on booking local bands to support the national and regional acts that play here. Our frequent local showcases offer great opportunities for NJ-based bands to gain exposure and new fans.

All bands must play local shows before any national act consideration. Most shows require bands to sell 25 to 100 advance tickets.

ROCK TO THE TOP is the Pony’s local band competition. For more information, visit Rock to the Top online.

New Jersey bands wanted for the following shows:

Fri Jun 14: Light My Fire (Doors tribute)

All e-mails should have your band name in the subject line and a band web link, Facebook, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, etc.

To request a show or slot, please be specific and give us your band contact information including full name, postal mailing address, ZIP code and phone number. We mail you show tickets with an info sheet.

Please note: A band’s ability to draw a crowd and sell advance tickets will definitely move you on to bigger events much faster, Agents and managers want to know that bands they approve can add to the crowd at a show.
