Welcome! The Blue Room is a 21+ venue (18+ for band members) located at 201 Secaucus Road in Secaucus, NJ; just minutes from Hoboken, the Holland and Lincoln Tunnels and Giants Stadium. Original acts play every Friday night from 8pm to close. (Except what we consider major holidays)
The Blue Room has seating in the form of tables, bar stools and couches; as well as standing room. We also have a full bar and kitchen. There are plenty of secure parking lots. (We are allowed the use of AJ's parking, which is located next door).
Performances include bands, acoustic acts and comedians. Cover material is not banned, but originals are strongly encouraged.
You are probably wondering if we have a PA. We do! We have monitors and speakers, a 24 channel mixer and a variety of microphones.
Good news drummers! If you don't want to, you don't have to bring a thing! (Well, sticks are probably a good idea, but we may have them, too) We supply a full drum kit, and it's even better than the trash cans and cow bell they supplied at your last gig! It's a PDP by DW with maple heads, three toms, a double bass pedal and cymbals. You can bring your own snare and extra cymbals if you like, but you don't have to. For those of you that want to use your own drum kit, we have to be stern on this one: it is never allowed on your first gig and is only allowed for acts with extremely heavy draws. (It's a major pain for us that we avoid at almost all costs.)
We supply a bass amp/speaker. It is a fender 100 watt combo with one 15 inch speaker, solid state. You are able to run direct and we do. Please don't bring your quadruple stack bass rig. We are sure it is very impressive, but this one works hard and gets very jealous when their are other bass rigs around.
Guitarists, the bright side is you get to bring your own amp. The downside is you have to bring your own amp. We do not supply a guitar amp or speaker of any kind. Why? One, most guitarists like to use their own and two, we're cheap.
