Starland Ballroom


The Starland Ballroom is a concert venue located in Sayreville.

The venue was formerly known as the Hunka Bunka Ballroom, which operated as a dance music club in the 1980s and 1990s, though throughout the 1990s it often hosted concerts, specifically punk and ska lineups. And even before that the building was known as the Jernee Mill Inn.  The building is believed to be the place where hometown stars Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora (lead singer and guitarist of Bon Jovi) met in the early 1980s.
