BreakTime's "She's The One" Resurrects a Timeless Era and Pays Homage to Greats like The Beatles

What originally began as a conventional Jersey cover band in 2018 has undergone a remarkable evolution. Their live performances have unveiled an inspiring trend: a steadily growing fan base, spanning a diverse range of musical genres, all coming together in genuine appreciation of songs that pay homage to classic traditions.
