NEWARK, NJ - Arthur L. Johnson Alumni Zack Sandler (Class of 2016) and his band Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son opened for Jon Bon Jovi at a sold-out Prudential Center recently.

The group opened for Bon Jovi’s “This House is Not for Sale” tour.  Performing a 20-minute set, the band played songs such as “.38 Special”. 

“I’ve had dreams of performing in an arena ever since I could remember. To be able to jump around on the same stage as my inspirations and main influences has been amazing. When we were sitting backstage in our green room, they had pictures hanging on the walls of all the other musicians who have stood on that same stage. Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Demi Lovato… I mean, wow. The only other time I’ve ever experienced this type of feeling was in my dreams,” stated Sandler.
