ARTICLE: School of Rock's Young Rockers Set to Honor Their Elders

Area music school presents weekend concerts that pay tribute to rock legends past and present and help Sandy relief. 

Local youngsters will bring the rock while honoring their musical heroes in three School of Rock Montclair events being held this month.

On Saturday and Sunday, students will present "Jersey Underground," a tribute to songs by diverse Garden State artists, including the Misfits, Dillinger Escape Plan, Kool & the Gang, the Gaslight Anthem, My Chemical Romance, the Lumineers, Blues Traveler, Whitney Houston, Sugarhill Gang, Overkill, Blondie and more.

The performances take place Saturday from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at Crossroads, 78 North Avenue, Garwood, and Sunday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at Just Jake’s, 30 Park St., Montclair.

Tickets are $10 and $5 for 17 and under.  All proceeds will benefit the Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund.

School of Rock Montclair will present another show at Just Jake's on Sunday at 3 p.m. "Jimi Wonder" is a musical mashup paying tribute to two very different rock legends, guitar hero Jimi Hendrix and soul-prodigy-turned-musical-visionary Stevie Wonder.

Tickets for "Jimi Wonder" are $5 and also go toward the Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund.

The concerts feature students in School of Rock Montclair’s rigorous performance programs. The school reports the kids have been preparing their repertoires since January.

“The diversity of our spring performance programs shows off the impressive range of our students’ tastes as well as their awesome musical skills,” said Shamera Sandoski, who owns School of Rock Montclair.  “Fans of all things Jersey will enjoy our tribute to a wide range of famous performers who got their start in the Garden  State.  And our two-fer of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Wonder will be impressed by how our young rockers perform some of the biggest hits of both artists.”

For more information on the events, contact Sandoski at 973-337-5296 or visit  Tickets can be purchased in advance at School of Rock Montclair, 125 Valley Road, or at the venue on the day of the show.
