12:15 - 1:15pm: School of Rock House Band

School of Rock is Music School reimagined. The patented School of Rock Method uses programs that are designed to encourage learning in a supportive environment where students of all skill levels are comfortable and engaged. We take the music school concept to the next level for kids, teens, and adults by combining 1-on-1 lessons, group rehearsals, and live shows into an authentic learning experience.

1:30 - 2:30 pm: Brian Butler Quartet

The Brian Butler Quartet, based in Fairfield County, is a straight-ahead jazz group featuring the wonderful vocalist Noreen Mola. The quartet is regularly featured separately or together in numerous venues in Ridgefield, Western Connecticut, and Westchester 

2:45 - 3:45pm: 3PO

3PO is a multidimensional power rock trio, spanning decades of music, that they have given their eclectic personality to. The vocal harmonies, sometimes a cappella, brand their music with a style that is uniquely 3PO.

4:00 - 5:00: Scott Robert Trio

The Scott Robert Trio is a deviation from the standard. "I am most proud of our experimentation within this group," says Scott. "We play with time signature, key, feel, and stylistic changes with most of our rep, working to create our own unique imprint on each tune."

5:15 - 6:15pm: Tony & the Westsiders

Tony & The West Siders are a Classic Rock and Blues 3-piece band based in Southwestern Connecticut, known for eclectic set lists mixing timeless hits from the 50s-80s with vintage blues from B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, and more!

Daniel John Moriarty is a Long Island native who got his start at open mics in Los Angeles. He played his first music open mic on a Sunday at the famous Kibitz Room and was asked to open for a band that Friday night having only played the guitar for one year; the rest is history. A mixture of pop, soul, blues and hip hop certain to delight all.
