Outside The Box Set To "Guest DJ" On SiriusXM's E Street Radio Airing Monday, August 15 at 4 PM



(ASBURY PARK, NJ) -– Outside The Box, the Jersey Shore based foursome who blend classic elements of rock with a modern flair and driving blues-inspired pop edge, will be spinning their favorite Bruce Springsteen tunes as they play the role of "Guest DJ" on Sirius XM's E Street Radio airing Monday, August 15 at 4pm.

The band will also join Sirius XMU blog radio host Nick Masi  in-studio on E Street Radio's "Cover Me" airing on Tuesday, August 16 at 6pm.

Both of these shows will be in advance of Outside The Box performing the seven tracks from Bruce Springsteen's 1973 epic album, 'The Wild, The Innocent and The E Street Shuffle' in sequence at The Stone Pony on Wednesday, August 17.  They will also play tracks from their newly released debut album, 'Bridge'.

The Outside The Box "Guest DJ" segment will re-air on Tuesday, August 16 (12am and 8am EST) and "Cover Me" will re-air on Wednesday, August 17 (12am EST), Thursday, August 18 (3pm EST) and Saturday, August 13 (4pm EST).

'Bridge', the debut album from Outside The Box, has already received rave reviews. 

Jay Lustig from the Star Ledger wrote:  "Bridge," highlighted by "Love Is the Villain," a song whose driving energy and hint of a snarl reminds me, more than anything else, of early Graham Parker (though you can hear traces of Petty and Costello and Dylan in there as well)."

Chris Rotolo from the Asbury Park Press said: "(Bridge) has monstrous melodies and choruses that will be ingrained in the minds and on the tips of tongues of Jersey Shore beach combers for years to come."

The JerseyBeat.com called 'Bridge': "a winning surplus of raw energy, sturdy musicianship, and positively infectious go-for enthusiasm…a totally kick-ass album".

The album is available on itunes, www.outsidetheboxband.com or at Jack's Music Shoppe in Red Bank, NJ.

Outside The Box 2011 summer residency is presented by Six Point Brewery.  Tickets are available for $10 at the Stone Pony box office (Ocean Avenue in Asbury Park) and $5 with college ID.
