MONTCLAIR, NJ – School of Rock in Montclair is making headlines with the latest performance scheduled for Jan. 11. Multi-million dollar recording star Aaron Carter will be performing with ‘No Noise,' a five-member rock band comprised of students from School of Rock Montclair. Carter will join them on stage at Mexicali Live in Teaneck located at 1409 Queen Anne Road.
“Playing with Aaron Carter is totally surreal,” says No Noise vocalist Mikaela Itkin-Weinstein. “When I was little, the song ‘Aaron’s Party’ was a huge hit that everyone knew, and he was a major household name. I look forward to No Noise’s show alongside this pop prince.”
Itkin-Weinstein, a 17-year-old senior at Montclair High School, describes No Noise’s sound as “punkish, guitar driven, garage rock that’s fun to dance and listen to.” The band’s influences include The Orwells, No Doubt, Tame Impala, and the Violent Femmes.
No Noise’s four other members include:
Sam Unger (17, Montclair, guitar and vocals)
Alec Tobin (17, Caldwell, guitar and vocals)
Max Schoenwetter (16, Montclair, bass)
Joe Billy (20, Clifton, drums)
No Noise has released their debut album entitled “Strange Times,” which was produced by School of Rock Montclair faculty member Phil Silverberg and features songs that were co-written by the entire band. The album will be available online before the end of January. The band’s current single “Blisters” is on sale now at iTunes and Bandcamp.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and show time is at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are available at TicketWeb. For more info, contact Mexicali Live – (201) 833-0011.
