Hokum! Productions presents alternative roots music and culture in uniquely real settings.

Hokum! began as a monthly Sunday showcase in the back room of McGinley Square Pub, a Jersey City craft beer bar that was saved from abandonment in 2015. Its trademarks were fully acoustic, down home shows where the gap between performer and audience was bridged with energy. International, national, and local touring musicians from the alternative roots scene graced the stage, and as shows became larger, Hokum! transformed into Hokum! Productions, now prepared to feature new, alternative, and strange roots music and culture. Hokum! Productions is "Music that is built to last, and people that are going to hell." Unique and formal attire is always encouraged.
