I’m John Russo and I graduated from Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ in 2011 as a journalism major with a heavy interest in sports. I am the football beat writer for Bridgeton HS for The Vineland Daily Journal. I was on the sports staff for the school’s student publication, The Whit, and have interned for the Gloucester County Times in Woodbury, NJ. I am the founder and editor of Team to Beat (Hire me, newspapers!).

Two years ago I gave up listening to my favorite band, the Dave Matthews Band, for Lent. It wasn’t an easy process as I felt myself craving the one band I could listen to non-stop for hours at a time.

I formed this blog to take you on the journey through my DMB-free Lent. Well, with the fun I had doing the project, I am keeping the blog going to review albums, concerts and all other things musically as an escape from the sports journalism.

If you want to contact me to comment on the site, suggest music or tell me I’m an idiot, email me at roose13@gmail.com.


“One good thing about music is when it hits you, you feel no pain” – A wise man once said this.
