On NPR’s All Things Considered Rymers music was called joyous, genius, melodic gift for anyone with a rock and roll soul,” and “might just be the best-sounding band in children’s music.””

“We are so grateful that Brady Rymer will be coming back home and sharing his music with, not only the families of Alpine but those in the surrounding areas as well,” Principal Joe Leone said.  “The PTO is an integral part of our school and provides the means necessary to fund assemblies, teacher disbursements and class trips.  It is through fundraisers like this concert night that we can continue to provide an environment where our students and teachers will thrive.

“What a better way to spend your Friday night than with friends and family,” Grano said.
