ROSELLE PARK, NJ - The lineup for the first-ever Make Music Roselle Park will include two rock bands, a pair of singer-songwriters, a free beginner harmonica lesson and more.

The event being held on June 21, Make Music Roselle Park is part of Make Music Day, a global music celebration that takes place on the summer solstice each year and brings people of all ages and skill levels together to make music. This year, 70 U.S. cities in 31 states will host more than 4,500 free outdoor concerts, music lessons, jam sessions and other exciting music-making events as part of the world’s largest annual music event. Roselle Park is just one of four New Jersey communities participating.

Two locations will host music in Roselle Park: Michael J. Mauri Park (the gazebo) and the NJ TRANSIT train station.

The gazebo festivities run from 5 to 9 p.m., beginning with a harmonica lesson. Sponsored by Hohner Music, up to 50 harmonicas will be provided free to anyone who wants to learn the basics of the instrument. That will be followed by performances by Rob Domanski, who will be playing classic rock covers; singer-songwriter Randie O'Neil; singer-songwriter Ryan Chatelain; alternative rock band The Stewart Dolly; and the School of Rock Chatham Street Team House Band, a group of teenage standouts from the music school in Morris County. There will also be a crafts table for kids, and gift certificates to Sam Ash Music will be raffled off.

The train station will host performances during the evening commute as part of its Music in Motion program.

Make Music Day began in France in 1982 as the Fête de la Musique, and has spread to over 800 cities across 120 countries. Completely different from a typical musical festival, Make Music concerts are performed by anyone who wants to take part and enjoyed by everyone who wants to attend. From classical to folk, hip hop to opera, Latin jazz to punk rock, live music of all kinds resounds worldwide on streets, sidewalks, porches, plazas, parks, gardens, storefronts and other public spaces on the longest day of the year.

Make Music Roselle Park is coordinated by the Roselle Park Arts Committee. For more information, visit MakeMusicRosellePark.com.
