Who Are 'The Jersey Follettes'?
'The Jersey Follettes' is an all female vocal performance group that has been in existence for over a year. Recent reality TV shows have portrayed New Jersey in a negative light and it is our goal to combat these stereotypes that hang over Jersey! All of the Follettes are from New Jersey and are representing our state as we know it - with BEAUTY, CLASS, and JERSEY PRIDE. It just so happens that we have a whole lot of VOCAL TALENT! We wish to celebrate and embody the best parts of NJ while putting on AMAZING musical performances for our audiences.
In the past year we have performed all over NJ, NY, and in Philly producing our own full-length shows, creating performances for Girl Scout Events including the Believe in Girls Celebration where we opened for Sara Bareilles and Joe Jonas, rocking local Street Fairs, making a holiday appearance at The Christmas Village, and more!
Get Your "Fall"ette On with us!!
The leaves are starting to fall and we hope you come fall in love with us and the music that you've heard and loved for years! The upcoming tri-state area tour, Get Your "Fall"ette On!, is a special workshop of a brand new Follettes show - a celebration of female vocal artists across generations, spanning the 21st Century, leaping into present day, and finishing with the premiere of the 1st Jersey Follettes' ORIGINAL SONG! Artists from Judy Garland to Aretha Franklin to Lady Gaga will be featured in this music spectacular. We will be backed by a full band for the first time as well! The show includes mash-ups and medleys that illuminate how music can echo itself after many years. It is going to be an exciting and unpredictable night of music with something for everyone!
How you can help!
Please help us get this show up and running! We are working extremely hard to get The Jersey Follettes' name out there and reach a larger audience. We want to be heard and become a positive voice for New Jersey and for the Jersey Girl! This next project will help propel us into the world and greatly support our mission.
Some of our expenses include venue costs, lighting and sound professionals, musicians, advertising, costumes, and props! So we're asking you, our fans, if you would pledge to help us finance this show. Any amount you give will be greatly appreciated. Really, ANY amount!! We will keep you posted on our progress through Facebook and Twitter. If we do not reach our goal, all contributions will be returned and we will start from scratch, because you know Jersey girls never give up! $3000 will give us the minimum amount needed to mount this show. If we receive more - the tour will just get that much more amazing!
