X-Marks the spot (again).

Band X debuted in our second Best Band edition and continues to boast a powerful presence and fan following on the Morris County music circuit. Fronted by rip-roaring vocalist Ann Murphy, Band X revisits classics such as Blondie's "One Way or Another," Pink Floyd's "Money" and Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song."

What you're saying:

-- Band X is one of the most lively local bands I've seen in a while. Their music applies to a diverse crowd from hard rock to modern day music. The lead singer, Ann Murphy, has an unbelievable voice and she really sings with her heart.

Adam Lusardi classic rock I have heard around in a long time.
