School of Rock Montclair will present two tribute concerts this weekend featuring the music of the bands Rage Against The Machine and The Deftones. The shows will be the first of three themed concerts events presented by the School’s Performance Program students, who have been rehearsing their repertoires since July.
“In addition to having weekly 45 minute private lessons, our Performance Program students also rehearsed for three hours each week throughout the summer for these upcoming concerts,” says Phil Silverberg, general manager of School of Rock Montclair. “Their levels of commitment, talent, and passion are off the charts, and they’re going to rip the roof off in each of these amazing concerts.”
Rage Against The Machine merged grunge, hip-hop, and classic rock, and were one of most important bands of the 90s. Students will perform a full range of the band’s best known hits, including “Bulls On Parade” and “Bombtrack”. The Deftones, who were inspired by Rage Against The Machine, are one of today’s top-selling and most popular alt-rock bands, combining rock, reggae, metal, and hip-hop. Featured songs will include the hits “Diamond Eyes” and “My Own Summer”.
