Musicians are signing up for Parents Who Rock’s 6th Annual Backyard Event, which is set for Saturday afternoon, September 8, at the corner of High Street and Cedar Street in Montclair, near Nishuane School.
So far, a long list of talented local bands and performers—PWR veterans and newcomers alike—have signed on to do 3-song sets between noon and 6 p.m. The rain date will be Saturday, September 15.
Here’s a partial list of who’s going to be playing: In the Dreamlife, Rich Deans and The RainMakers, Andrew Klewan, Christine Kelly and Dylan, George Greenfield, Rob Halper, The No Rehearsals, David Janowski and Aviva Patz, Sarah Wolman, Dan Sheehan Conspiracy, Ellen Paretti and Tim O’Connor, Lesley Scammel and Chris Mathews, Chris Kunstadter, Aliza and Ciaran, West Essex Chamber Players, Jefferson Newman and the TNT Ramblers. Check back, because more performers may be added when confirmed.
Other non-musical activities are planned, including face painting provided by Aunt Jean’s Toys and Treats, a kids’ yoga session, a sale of Stella and Dot Jewelry, and a shaved ice truck providing frozen treats, with a percentage going to MESH Montclair. In addition, School of Rock will donate a month of free lessons, the Modern Music Academy will donate a $75 gift certificate, and Little Rockers will donate four cool music classes.
There's no cover, but donations are welcome. All money raised will got to MESH, to benefit those in need of food assistance.
So come on out, bring a picnic basket and chairs and a blanket. PWR provides the venue, sound, audience and performers—just come ready to have a great time.
