One of the standout artists amongst the cast is Djo, who you probably know as Steve Harrington. This past weekend, he was booked to perform at the beach on the Jersey Shore at the Sea.Hear.Now Festival, though he had to cancel last minute. Regardless of the false alarm, it still sparked the question: "is Steve the only one?"

In short, the answer is no -- he's not the only one. In light of that, today, we're taking a look at Steve's music, along with that of the rest of the cast. You're about to be shocked by just how passionate the show's cast is about music. Here's a look at some of the cast-members who release music in their spare time.
