The Headliner For The January 27 Event Will Be Going Dark, An Energized, Heavy Rock Trio Of School Of Rock Scholars Whose Music Has Been Featured On Area Rock Radio Stations WDHA-FM And WRAT-FM.

Stage Left At Chill, a concert venue found at 312 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, will present live performances from a variety of new bands that are composed of scholars from School of Rock Montclair. The show will happen on Fri., January 27 at 5:30 p.m.

"School of Rock Montclair doesn't just offer an extraordinary method for our scholars to learn, enjoy, and perform music, it's also a social scene where young musicians can meet, develop their sound, and form their own bands," says Matt Sandoski, owner of College of Rock Montclair. "Our musicians hook up with other scholars who share their tastes and vision, and they use our teaching staff of professional working musicians as a resource for ideas, feedback, and guidance."

The headliner for the January 27 event will be Going Dark, an energetic, heavy rock threesome of College of Rock scholars whose music has been featured on area rock radio stations WDHA-FM and WRAT-FM. The band is made of Alex Fogg (15, drums), L.J. Militello (14, guitar), and Oliver Shaw (twelve, bass and vocals), and produced by Grammy-winner John Ginty, previous music director for College of Rock Montclair. Going Dark has opened for teenager sensations Big Time Rush at 6 Flags in Jackson, NJ and mythical rocker Sebastian Bach at Irving Square, in N. Y. Their debut CD "Play Your Game" will be given to all visitors at their Chill performance.

Also featured on the bill are GNGR, a Caldwell-based band featuring School of Rock musicians Garrett Bell (vocals and guitar), Jake Lefkowitz (lead guitar), Jason Inguagiato (guitar), Raffaele Chiovaro (bass), Michael Berry (keyboard), and Aidan O'Connor (drums). With inspiration ranging from Led Zeppelin and Lynryd Skynrd to Guns 'n' Roses and the Foo Fighters, GNGR has been gigging habitually in the Essex County area at festivals, events, and places over the past year.

Opening the show will be Holographic Jellyfish, a Montclair-based quartet of School of Rock scholars that combines alternative, progressive, and hallucinatory genres into a sound that they describe as shoegaze metal. Band members include Montclair School scholars Willie Kunstatder (lead guitar), Nick Truck Leer (drums), Nagee D.C. (rhythm guitar and vocals), and Mt. Hebron student Eli Sofly Zayar (bass).

Tickets for the Chill concert are $10 ahead and $12 at the door. VIP guest host will be WDHA-FM D.J. Terrie Carr. All ticket holders will be entered into a drawing to win one three-day weekend pass to the 2012 Bamboozle Holiday in Asbury Park.
