the New Jersey Hall of Fame Band. Reworking the lyrics for this special event, Jean sings, “Ev- erything’s gonna be all right/ New Jersey’s in the house to- night,” before rapping, “In high school I used to bring the pain/ Check it out, I’m in the Jersey Hall of Fame.” Rapidly approaching the end of this special evening, all the inductees take the stage, rockin’ like only Jersey can, to the clas- sic sounds of one of the greatest NJ STAGE 2017 - Vol. 4 No. 5 party songs of all time — Tom- my James’ 1968 chart-topper “Mony, Mony.” As the inductees and present- ers celebrate, the Jersey crowd cheers and claps along, showing their enthusiastic support for all of the notable individuals asso- ciated with their beloved home state as they congratulate the New Jersey Hall of Fame Class of 2016!
