This October, The GRAMMY Museum Experience™ Prudential Center is set to open. This one-of-a-kind interactive space will be a chance for music lovers to get closer to the GRAMMYs than ever before. In addition to extensive GRAMMY artifacts, visitors will have two unique opportunities to learn from New Jersey GRAMMY icons – Max Weinberg and Wyclef Jean.
Legendary E Street drummer and New Jersey native son, Max Weinberg will be featured in an all-new drum interactive exhibit. In this exhibit, visitors can hear the inspiration behind Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 hit, “Born In the U.S.A.” and learn how to play along. It’s a rare chance for music lovers, and students to experience this iconic anthem. To go behind the scenes, check out NorthJersey.com.
The second exclusive interactive will feature Newark Native Wyclef Jean. Visitors will learn what it takes to create and rap his hit “Gone Till November.” It’s an experience hip hop lovers can’t miss. For the Newark, NJ native, being a part of the Experience is surreal. “At the end of the day I am so Jersey. Maybe I’m a little biased but Jersey has such a rich music background and it’s underplayed. I am glad were getting this exposure.” Stay tuned for more coverage on Wyclef Jean’s Rap Interactive from Uproxx.
