You might remember that, a few weeks back, four kids from Verona were supposed to be performing at a funk and reggae show in Montclair. That show got rained out, but the kids are back this Saturday, October 22, with an indoor show in Teaneck.
Verona residents Katie Kast and Michael Petillo will be playing guitar, Ella Yarmo-Gray will play keyboard and vocals and Owen Yarmo-Gray will play keyboard and drums. The four are students at the School of Rock in Montclair and they have been rehearsing weekly since June under the direction of Mark Dollar and Maurice Watson. The show will include a variety of different funk and reggae songs like “Boogie Oogie Oogie” by A Taste of Honey, “The Harder They Come” by Jimmy Cliff and “Superbad” by James Brown. Other songs by Bob Marley, Kool and the Gang, Prince and Parliament will also be performed.
Saturday’s show is at Mexicali Live, 1409 Queen Anne Road in Teaneck. The doors open at 2 p.m. and the show starts at 2:30. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids $17 and under, and you can order yours here.
