Local battle of the bands champ Fourshadows and MAD4kids are teaming up for a Sandy Relief benefit concert on Wednesday, Nov. 21, at 6:30 p.m. at the Brick House.
The fundraiser will include food donated by the Wyckoff restaurant and entertainment provided by the reigning Ramapo High School BotB Champs.
Fourshadows' guitarist/vocalist Jeremy Zucker said the band has been trying to play out as much as possible, but after Hurricane Sandy crushed the tri-state area a benefit concert just seemed like the perfect thing to do.
"Living in an area that was so largely affected by the storm and hearing terrifying stories of the destruction in other areas, it is hard not to help out in some way," Jeremy said. "We felt the benefit would be a great way to raise awareness and money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, as well as a chance to showcase our music."
Fourshadows is comprised of Nate Chung and Josh Key, from Wyckoff; Zucker from Franklin Lakes; and Jason Diamond from Oakland — all Ramapo High School students.
Josh and Jason are seniors, and Jeremy and Nate are juniors.
All of the money MAD4Kids makes at the door will be donated to Sandy Relief, according to club member Kristen Arnold.
Tickets to the all-ages show are limited; each ticket costs $15 in advance, and $25 if bought at the door. To purchase tickets, or for more info, contact email@example.com.
Fourshadows formed in October 2011, with each member looking for music to be a greater part of their lives.
The band fuses rock, pop, alternative rock, acoustic rock, and tunes in the singer/songwriter tradition. While focusing on writing and performing original material, they also like to put their own spin on covers.
