Verona Music Parents and Verona PBA Local #72 Civic Association Team Up to Host "Cops and Rockers" Music Event


VERONA, NJ - On Saturday, March 19 at 7 p.m., student bands from Verona High School, surrounding Schools of Rock, and local musicians (clean acts) will perform in the “Cops and Rockers” event at Verona High School.

This event was created to allow local kids to show off their rocking musical ability on a big stage with lights, fog machines, and a rocking audience!  It also bridges the gap between local teens and law enforcement officers as they bond through music and fun.  This is the fourth year that the Verona Music Parents Association and the Verona PBA Local #72 Civic Association are hosting this successful event.

Sponsor donations from local businesses, $10 admission tickets and other fundraising activities on site will go directly to our two fundraising organizations:  The Officer Ron Thorward Fund, in honor of our own Verona Police officer who recently passed away (donations go to help support his wonderful family), and The Verona Music Program, a program rich in history and success that relies on fundraising to maintain its high standard of educating countless numbers of amazingly talented kids!
