Hailing from the towns surrounding the Jersey Shore and the banks of the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers, The Pontiacs, heavily influenced by the rock & roll classics began cutting their teeth in the vibrant local bar scene. Often playing the historic venues, The Wonder Bar and The Stone Pony in Asbury Park.
After extensively gigging the local bar shows, the 5 piece band, armed with three guitarists, a bass player, and a hard hitting drummer, decided to add some fresh air to their 3 hour long sets. That fresh air wouldn't be in the form of another Rolling Stones or Bruce Springsteen cover. It would be in the form of writing sessions which would draw from their influences of Jason Isbell, Gaslight Anthem, Ryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen, and Drive By Truckers. The Pontiacs released their debut single, "Ghost Town", in July of 2022. The band is poised and ready to continue expanding their audience with their well crafted songs and energetic live performances.
