For the seventh year in a row, Kids Rock will be rocking the house for New Eyes for the Needy on Saturday, March 14, 2pm-4pm at Roxy and Duke's Roadhouse, 745 Bound Brook Rd, Dunellen, NJ. Some of the local area's best teen musicians will be performing classic rock to raise money for New Eyes' new prescription eyeglass program for children in the United States. 

Kids Rock chairperson and Summit High School senior, Andrew McGann, has been organizing and planning the concert for months. "It's a labor of love," said  Andrew, "that has a lot of moving parts." That's no understatement. Besides the administrative tasks of getting hundreds of fund-raising letters in the mail, Andrew booked the venue, recruited performers, created the concert program and organized rehearsals. "I'm really thankful to all the musicians performing at  Kids Rock," said Andrew "and especially grateful that School of Rock Chatham is our sponsor." 

"School of Rock Chatham has been a great supporter of Kids Rock since its inception in 2009", said Jean Gajano,, Executive Director of New Eyes. "SOR Music Director Art Lima has been very generous, donating his time, equipment and guidance in making Kids Rock a success each and every year."  Many of the performers are School of Rock musicians, some from its acclaimed All Stars Band.  "It's really amazing to see and hear these kids perform,” said Gajano.  “I envy their talent and stage presence. They are practically professionals!"

Kids Rock tickets are $20. They are available at the door or may be purchased in advance by contacting New Eyes at 973-376-4903.
