Sweet Oblivion was blown away when voted #1 by their fans @ TopNJBands.com and not just in The Rock / Metal category, which they have held since July 2015, but voted “#1 Band in N.J.” over all categories in Nov. 2015 through Jan. 2017.
After the loss of some of the original band members, charter member, Dan Leusner hung in there as we are looking for just the right talent to fill the vacancies and those are some big shoes to fill. but after a long and careful search and a auditioning process that is taking almost 2 years!
In July of 2015 Glenn hopped on board with his many vocal talents, and now with the addition of Danny Stab tearing up leads on his guitars since Nov. of 2015, In Mid summer 2016 Chris Barranco rolled in as Bassist and Sweet Oblivion is once again gearing up as New Jersey’s Premier Grunge Tribute Band.
Sweet Oblivion is a tribute band playing the music that arose as the “Seattle Sound”. Sweet Oblivion mainly plays the major bands of the Grunge era; Alice in Chains, Soundgarden & Audioslave(Chris Cornell), Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, as well as many other iconic grunge bands from that era. Another band favorite is Screaming Trees. Trivia note: The band took their name from Screaming Trees’ sixth full-length album, released on September 8, 1992.
