Pets Rock! Concert June 27th for St. Hubert's

Pets Rock!, a showcase of area bands to benefit St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center’s animal shelters in Madison and North Branch, takes place June 27th at Roxy & Dukes Roadhouse in Dunellen.  The show starts at 7:30pm and tickets can be purchased in advance for $15.00 at or at the door for $20.00.  No one under the age of 21 will be admitted. 

Guests will be treated to performances from several popular New Jersey bands donating their talents to raise funds for homeless animals.  Performers include Max Headroom, Brian Voynick and Friends, Amy Ward Trio, and the Somerville School of Rock. Q1014.3’s Maria Milito will emcee the evening, which includes a 50/50 raffe and tricky tray auction with all proceeds donated to St. Hubert’s. 

Pets Rock! is organized by local musician Kamran Vaziri and his wife Kristine, who were motivated to organize a benefit where all money raised could help animals in need.  “Since animals don’t have a voice, we wanted to be their voice - music seemed to make the most sense,” said Kristine.  Kamran’s passion for music combined with Kristine’s love of animals has been the driving force to making this event come to life.  St. Hubert's encourages music and animal lovers to come out and enjoy some great talent while supporting homeless animals.
