The self-described “hardest working party band” in the tri-state area is … Jim Lyman on guitar, Stuart Leon on drums, Ron Marrero on bass, Graham Lyman on bass, and Harris Pogust on keyboards.


When they aren’t doing things local dads (and dentists) do, they’re Boxorox. Boxorox finds the jam in songs you love – from Talking Heads and Elvis Costello to Phish and The Grateful Dead. Boxorox is … Brett Margulis (lead guitar), Ned Weintraub (bass, vocals), Pete Nostrand (keyboard, vocals), Kyle Barich (guitar, vocals), and Steve Isaacson (drums).


EBE Rio’s professionalism, talent, and attention to detail ensure that every event becomes a perfectly planned party. Rio prides itself on being genuine performers who are tuned in to their audience, paying close attention to guest reaction and participation. They love to personalize the music, throwing in their own brand of musical comedy designed to make everyone get lost in the fun of the moment.


Barry Wasserman, MD, has performed music since college, which supported him through medical school and residency. In 2000, he opened an ophthalmology practice in the Princeton area where he reconnected with old friends and continued to jam. Today, they play a mix of acoustic and alternative rock from the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s.
