Pop-Break Live: The Struts at the 95.9 WRAT’s Nutcracker Ball at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ

The Struts, the British purveyors of that dirty, sexy throwback rock ‘n’ roll sound, stormed The Starland Ballroom on December 15th.

The show was 95.9 WRAT’s Nutcracker Ball — the annual Christmas show for the Jersey Shore based hard rock station. Performing along with The Struts were Sick Puppies and Holy White Hound.

The Struts have been on a roll in 2016 — they released their record, Everybody Wants in the US on March 4, and their single “Kiss This” has ended up in heavy radio rotation, in commercial use, and in the recent theatrical release Office Christmas Party.

The Pop Break’s Saidy Lopez caught the band in action.
