12:15 p.m. – 1:15 p.m.: Rock House Band School
School of Rock is a reinvented music school. The patented School of Rock method uses programs designed to encourage learning in a supportive environment where students of all levels are comfortable and engaged.

The Brian Butler Quartet, based in Fairfield County, is a straightforward jazz band featuring the wonderful vocalist Noreen Mola. The quartet is regularly performed separately or together at many venues in Ridgefield, western Connecticut and Westchester.
2:45 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.: 3PO
3PO are a multi-dimensional power rock trio, spanning decades of music, to which they have given their eclectic personality. The vocal harmonies, sometimes a cappella, mark their music with a style specific to 3PO.
4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.: Scott Robert Trio
The Scott Robert Trio is a departure from the norm. “I’m very proud of our experimentation in this group,” says Scott. “We play with time signature, key, feel and stylistic changes with most of our reps, working to create our own unique imprint on every track.”
5:15 p.m. – 6:15 p.m.: Tony and the Westsiders
Tony & The West Siders are a 3-piece classic rock and blues band based in southwestern Connecticut, known for their eclectic set lists mixing timeless hits from the 50s-80s with vintage blues from BB King, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, and more!
6:30 p.m. – 7:15 p.m.: Daniel John Moriarty
Daniel John Moriarty is a Long Island native who got his start in open mics in Los Angeles. He played his first open-mic music on a Sunday at the famed Kibitz Room and was asked to open for a band that Friday night after playing guitar for just a year; the rest is history. A mix of pop, soul, blues and hip hop that will delight everyone.
