An Exciting Announcement

Hello everyone! It’s Katie, the editor of Jersey Alternative. I’m excited to announce that for the next few weeks, I’ll be working with Macaulay Martinez, the author of 808 Sounds & Snares, and DeQuan Watson, the author of Bridging the Gap to produce a collaborative campaign. Although our sites seem different, we’re all united by our love of music. We’ve decided to join forces by producing a series of podcasts and videos to promote VH1 Save The Music Foundation.

Save The Music is dedicated to providing children with a musical education to help them excel and grow both in and out of school. Our series will discuss how music gives children the confidence to excel and the types of fundraisers and charity events that have been held to promote the organization. In addition, Jersey Alternative will be making a podcast focusing on the effects that VH1 Save The Music has had on children throughout the Garden State. We’ll also be publishing guest posts by our partners on all three of our sites.

Stay tuned to Jersey Alternative, 808 Sounds & Snares, and Bridging the Gap as our campaign unfolds, and don’t forget to visit VH1 Save The Music’s website at to find out how you can join the cause by fundraising or signing up for their email updates.
