The musicians include Justin Jordan and Lance Doss on guitars, Paul Page on Bass and Steve Holly on Drums. Their brand of rock and roll has elements of southern funk and Jersey soul with plenty of jamming for the fans of musical improvisation.

Bog Iron Bloom. Bog Iron Bloom is as rare and as natural as the lost commodity they borrow their name from. They carefully combine a semi-acoustic trio of guitar, bass and drums with a small but haunting string section. They have been recognized by the Asbury Park Press, 90.3 the Core, and have won the award for “Top New Band” by the Jersey Acoustic Musician Awards. They released their debut EP, “Welcome to Bears” in August 2013.
