Americas Got Talent and So Does Morristown!

By Joe Weston orristowns Got Talent Show lit up the Mayo Performing Arts Center last Wednesday in true Hollywood style as one of its own, Tara Bernie, hosted the show. Bernie, a Morristown resident, is senior producer for NBCs Access Hollywood and Access Hollywood Live. As the Master of Ceremonies, Bernie interviewed sponsors, friends and family of performers, children, and VIPs such as the superintendent of Morristown Schools; all who walked the red carpet in front of snapping cameras and news crews before enjoying the talent show. In fact, one of the fun video clips shown to the audience after the red carpet interviews was Bernie leading a group of youngsters to shout out to the camera on cue: Morristowns Got Talent. Dubbed as the 7th Annual Morristowns Got Talent: Hollywood Edition, the event showcased local performers ranging in age from 11 to 85. The almost-soldout crowd enjoyed entertainment from a wide variety of

actsfrom solo singers to small bands to dancers to a 13 member barbershop harmonizing act, and included a talented violinist, pianist, a bass player, and 4 marimba artists. Sixteen acts, who survived cuts in narrowing competition from the original seventy contestants, dazzled four distinguished judges from the arts profession to score a win, place and show purse of $1,000, $500, and $250; respectively. The glitzy contest, which

All of the monies raised will fund enrichment programs and other projects for the school district, enhancing the quality of education and opportunities for students, according to the Foundations recent press release.

Last year, Morristowns Got Talent event raised over $50,000 for the MEF; and most of that comes from local businesses. This year, Mill Creek Residential, who is currently building a luxury apartment community in Morristown, is the lead sponsor. In fact, Hollywoods Tara Bernie shared with the audience that the MEF has raised over 1.6 million dollars during its 21 years; funding grants, scholarships, and parcontinued on page 4

The school is the center of the community and builds pride, said Debbie Sontupe, a board of trustee member of the Morris Educational Foundation. Its a night to celebrate our town and our community. Its kind of fun. You come here to cheer on your colleague and neighbors, Sontupe said before the event with excited anticipation. ndeed, it was the close knit dynamic of the town that is responsible for some of the acts performing. For example, Ruddy Ioppolo, the owner of Anthonys Pizza (located on the green), holds an open mic night for local performers to practice their craft. We fill the place with musicians every Tuesday, Ioppolo said. One night, we found ourselves harmonizing at the table and decided to do something with it, Ioppolo said. His singing partners are Stephen DePasque, who works with him, and Jim DePasque, his Dad. At that same time, MEF member Sontupe and a member of the Morristowns Got Talent steering committee, Marcy Yarnis, happened to be in the restaurant listening. They

encouraged the three of them to compete. Fast forward to Wednesday night this trio that calls themselves the Pizza Shop Boys had the crowd singing along and cheering to a show finale performance of a catchy 60s tune. Coincidentally, another contestant, Daniel Baldan, began performing publicly at the restaurants open mic, which has turned out to me an amazing mecca for local talent. Baldan sang David Bowies Space Oddity while strumming his acoustic guitar. This is definitely the largest crowd Ive ever played in front of, Baldan said before his performance at the Mayo. Although 10 of the 16 acts were comprised of students, adult locals that earned finale status were just as excited to be on stage. Gabrielle Visser-Trumbull, a paralegal in town who sings in church and community theatre, received quite the applause after she sang Linda Eders Someone Like You. The common thread among all the contestants was nailed down very succinctly by Hollywoods Tara Bernie. They all had a dream, they all had talent, and they all had tenacity.

lthough many have felt homebound during various storms this winter, the challenge of helping those who are chronically homebound in greater Morris County due to advanced age, serious illnesses or disabilities falls upon the Visiting Nurse Association of Northern NJ (VNA). In fact, each day representatives from the Morristown-based agency have quietly been delivering comfort and encouragement to residents of more than 40 neighboring municipalities. Home care field work has historically carried with it a willingness to brave the elements. Yet the past three years have tested the dedication and resolve of even our most devoted team members. They rose to the challenges of Hurricane Irene, a storm of the century, in 2012 only to be confronted by an even more

Despite a record snowfall, bitter cold temperatures and lingering dangerous icy conditions, our VNA team has persevered once again. Throughout the VNA, staff members and volunteers have gone the extra mile working long hours in advance of each storm to ensure that clients with essential needs received visits before the roads became impassable. Many were also among the first to emerge from the safety of their own homes to resume their rounds and some of our nurses worked weekends to make up for missed appointments, Scott said.

By Kate Halse ocal organization Bike and Walk Morristown is always working to make Morristown a better place to walk and bike. Spring of 2014 is a particularly exciting time for the organization, as its annual "Bikes.Bands.Beer 2014" event is set for later this month. A "Bike Walk Here" program is set to launch at a later date this spring.

It is awesome to get people who want to live in a bike friendly town out in the snowy cold season to meet up and remind each other what is great about it." She notes, "Building a community of inter-

The membership also makes it easy to join in one of the several cases and programs the organization provides. Along with the membership drive, the organization has other exciting plans for the coming months. One such plan is the introduction of the Bike Walk Here program, which is designed to promote businesses in Morristown. According to Arnold, "Studies have shown that people who bike and walk to shop, shop more often and spend more money over a month than people who drive." She says, "Our Bike Walk Here program lets local businesses offer a small discount or perk to our members and we will let our members and residents know where to head to if they want to support bike and walk friendly businesses." In addition to the new program, the organization recently agreed to take over the Morristown Bicycle Parking Program.

Arnold hopes to soon have a plan and process for businesses that would like to suggest a place for a bike rack, or order a bike rack for themselves. She said, "We had two days this winter where volunteers spread out all over Morristown mapping where bicycle racks are and taking pictures of where they might also be needed." Douglas Vorolieff, a member of the organization, is leading the initiative. Bike and Walk Morristown is entirely run by volunteers who want to make Morristown a better place to bike and walk. In addition, the organization also strives to celebrate the community and town. To achieve their goals, volunteers with Bike and Walk Morristown can often be found making phone calls, teaching classes, putting on parties and having cycling adventures. The volunteers consistently advocate for improvements around town for cyclists and pedestrians, and can sometimes be found stopping for a coffee or beer together.

hile elevated intraocular (inside the eye) pressure is often a major sign of glaucoma, damage to the optic nerve can also occur without high pressure or fluid build-up. So-called normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) may occur among people with eye pressure in the normal range as a result of intracranial pressure in the brain or compromised blood flow, both of which damage the optic nerve by depriving it of oxygen. It may also simply be that the optic nerve is more fragile in some people. Whatever the reason for NTG, it takes a comprehensive eye exam to diagnose it. Normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) is treated in the same way that regular glaucoma is, either through


eye drops or laser surgery to improve fluid drainage in the eye. Eye problems can range from mild to severe. Some can become chronic conditions, while others may resolve on their own, never to appear again.

Mr. Kiddoo will share the story of the Reverend Jacob Greens influential dream, in his own words, which occurred nearly 275 years ago and helped change the course of Morris County history. Parson Green was an important citizen of colonial Morris County. He served as a parson for the schoolboys and farmers who became soldiers in the Continental Army. In addition to the hundreds of people he ministered to, Parson Green also greatly influenced the Reverend Ebeneezer Bradford, who is the central figure in the Morris County Historical Societys docudrama,

However, it is told from several different perspectives, capturing the thoughts of various characters as they watch the romance unfold from a distance. Jean Feiwel, a publisher who came up with the idea for Swoon Reads, says of Hall, "I couldn't have asked for a better candidate." She calls Hall's work "fresh" and "original." The company thinks the young author is "kind of a diamond in the rough." Sandy Hall's inspiration for the novel came from the Swoon Read site itself. "When I heard about the site last fall I'd been working on writing a different novel, but it didn't have a serious romance plot in it," Hall said. "So I decided to try my hand at writing a contemporary romance, but decided to mix it up a bit by using multiple to me until I get a story to a place that I can share it." The novel writing process didn't come without its own challenges, however. The most challenging part, says Hall, is "this set of edits I'm working on right now." She says that although the editing has taken up a lot of energy, "it's still a good challenge, a productive challenge." Feiwel believes that the

Hall's contract with Swoon Reads was announced on Valentine's Day. Her book centers around two college students who fall in love. Hall, a teen librarian in Morristown, recalls anxiously waiting for news from Swoon Reads after sending in her manuscript. The good news, telling her that her manuscript had been accepted, arrived in her email inbox on a cold Monday morning. Swoon Reads will print a total of 100,000 copies of Hall's book.

She explains, "Rather than having the two characters who are falling for each other narrate the story, it's told by the people around them, their professor, their friends, the barista at the Starbucks they frequent, etc." Looking back on the process of writing the novel, Hall says that, "The finish is always the most rewarding." She continues, "I love sharing my writing and getting feedback. It doesn't feel real

As of right now, Hall is working on her final manuscript for Swoon Reads and hopes that her life as a writer is beginning. She explains that although this is her first published novel, there are two more that are in assorted phases of editing.

Unity Charter school placed tenth in the final round of online voting and will receive $1,000 in prize money. According to Carich, We will use every penny to help start our outdoor classroom. Most likely it will be used for ground cover plants. [While doing the work on the contest] our students learned about the native trees on our property and wanted to "speak for the trees" and tell the world about why they are important. Our experience taught us about script writing, video production and teamwork as well. It was a very worth while experience, at Unity we always focus on ecology and sustainability and this contest was just a small way for our students to take an active role in raising funds for their own learning environment. Unity Charter School Director Carolyn Mungo was equally excited about the project outcome. The students worked so hard to make that video right here on our campus grounds, she said. They were creative, excited about participating because they are passionate about the environment and very aware of the impact Superstorm Sandy had on our area. They wanted to do this to give back to the Earth. It may seem unusual that children that

Likely they would tell you how important they are to the environment and the continuation of life on this planet. Well recently the trees that call the Unity Charter School in Morristown home, were interviewed by students and they talked about why we should respect and protect them. The tree interview exercise was done by the second/third grade class of teacher Jennifer Carcich as a submission to the Scotties Trees Rock Video Contest. The three minute video features reporter Valmik with a breaking news story about talking trees. The white pine tree talked about how he provides homes for birds; the oak tree explained how Superstorm Sandy knocked over many of his friends, wiping out a large part of the forest; Miss Maple added that trees provide oxygen and are good places for kids to sit and read under; and the sassafras tree shared its fragrant lemony smell and detailed how important tree roots are to holding up the slope by keeping the soil in place.

young would be so interested and knowledgeable about the environment but for Unity Charter School students it is a core part of the curriculum. Unity Charter School is described simply as, a tuition-free, public school in Morris Township that offers a unique approach to education for students from Kindergarten to 8th Grade throughout New Jersey. Yet it is so much more. The mission of the Unity Charter School is to teach the importance of protecting and improving the environment by educating our

students on the principles of sustainability, ecology, and diversity in a way that celebrates and honors this planet and all its inhabitants. Therefore the Scotties contest was directly in line with the philosophy of the school and what it is trying to teach students. Sustainability is the primary focus of Unity Charter School. Sustainability is defined as meeting the needs of the present while enhancing the ability of future generations to meet their needs. The curriculum is explored through the lens of sustainability. continued on next page

Students work outside on the garden, for example, and this helps them learn where their food comes from. Whenever possible, teaching and learning are experienced within a context of sustainability and the relevance of this knowledge to the students lives. The school lunch program is vegetarian, because eating lower down on the food chain has a reduced environmental impact. Some organic and local products are used, and vegan and gluten-free meals are also offered. Students eat at tables covered with tablecloths, use cloth napkins and real silverware, and eat off of ceramic dinner plates.

The winners of the much anticipated musical event were announced by the contests host, Tara Bernie, producer of NBCs Access Hollywood. The audience enjoyed a wide selection of entertainment by 16 competing acts, who were local performers of all ages, not just students. The acts were chosen from an original pool of 70 locals who had auditioned to be among those on stage. The annual talent contest is an event sponsored by the Morris Education Foundation and is actually a fund raiser, whose monies go to the Morris school district for student enhancement programs. Sara Dalpe, singer, Valerie Bai, violinist, and Jordan Rabinowitz, bass player, were all smiles as they accepted the $1,000 prize for being selected as showing the most talent.

According to the Playbill, Anthony Krizan is one of the premier guitarists, songwriters, and producers in the NY metropolitan area. He first rose to fame in the 90s as a member of The Spin Doctors. Jersey Girl Terrie Carr was also given the tough job of deciding whose talent among all the performers was most distinct. She is the Music Director/Midday Host for radio station 105.5 WDHA-The Rock of New Jersey. The judge listed third on

the Playbill was Jay Lustig, the Arts and Entertainment Editor for NJs largest daily newspaper, The Star Ledger. Rounding out the judges panel was Alyssa Derling a performer, choreographer, and artistic director of Darling Dance Arts, a modern dance and musical theatre company.

Dalpe, who performed in the Morristown Highs musicals for all 4 years. Ironically, the trio calls themselves Band of Misfits. The story behind the name was told to the audience by Hollywood host Tara Bernie. When the three performers were next up in one of their auditions, the guy in charge jokingly said, Who is this band of misfits? After that, the name stuck. The second place winners were four young percussionists that surprised the audience with their amazing dexterity on the marimba. According to the Playbill, students Stephen Ferm of Morristown, Emily Carvalho of Morris Plains, Reed Puleo of Chester, and Neil McNulty of Randolph have been captivated by Mark Fords style of Latin American bands.

Jazz vocalist Joe Van Loon accompanied by guitarist and friend Chris Deloris, both 20, claimed 3rd prize in Wednesdays talent display. Van Loon had been studying at the Manhattan School of Music while DelSordi was at the Berklee College of Music, although both are currently working full time.

By Joe Weston f there were an Olympic contest among 88 year old Jazz musicians, Bucky Pizzarelli would surely win the gold. But his life as a guitarist and banjoist inspires above and beyond wowing listeners at this golden age. We are all impressed by stars whose fame become re-doubled as they continue to perform through their 80s against all odds. Indeed, Pizzarelli is among the George Burns and the Betty Whites of the world. The most recent milestone showing off

Bucky Birthday Guitar Summit Huge Hit

Pizzarellis longevity was his 88th birthday bash on January 15 dubbed Bucky Birthday Guitar Summit at the Bickford Theatre in Morris Township, where he impressed listeners with delicately-played tones from his seven string guitar. Who would have predicted 3 years ago after a comparable performance at the same theatre during Buckys 85th birthday tour that hed be back with bells on last month, having never stopped to take a breath in the meantime? He would play 7 days a week if I let him, says Ed Laub, who is Buckys playing partner, manager and former student. I have to filter what he does. Hes like the Energizer Bunny. Laub plays over 100 gigs a year with Bucky, who works 250 out of 365 days. Laub books most of Buckys gigs. Their schedule can be followed on Laub explained why John Paul Bucky Pizzarelli (the nickname stuck after he used the stage name Johnny Buck back in the mid 1950s) is unique as a musician in ways beyond just playing his guitar. Musicians are known for keeping their trade secrets and knowledge to themselves lest someone pick it up and overshadow them, Laub said. But Bucky has never been jealous or selfish with his art or talent. He shows us all of his licks (defined as a taste of a musicians signature sound) and shares his solo arrangements. Laub said Bucky believes that your job as a musician is to make the other guy look great. With Bucky, its all about the overall performance so that everyone wins, Laub added. It speaks to his character and why he is just a loved individual. The bio on Laubs website sums up their relationship: 12 years ago, Ed divorced himself of all his business ties and became the steady partner to his childhood teacher, idol and close friend, Bucky Pizzarelli. They now travel all over the metropolitan area and major cities in the US, playing in clubs, concert venues and jazz festivals. All About Jazz Magazine said, Pizzarelli is the complete jazz musician and Laub complements him perfectly! In late February 2014 Ed will be featured on a guitar trio album along with John Pizzarelli and leader, Bucky Pizzarelli. The CD, Three For All- The Bucky Pizzarelli Trio will be released on Chesky Records. And then in early March 2014, Ed Laub will be releasing his debut CD featuring his mentor and partner, Bucky Pizzarelli. enues where Pizzarelli and Laub play include churches, restaurants, community theatres, and even food markets. But get this:

Like us on facebook Tell Them You Saw It In The Morristown News, March 2014, Page 15 Bucky accompanied Michael Feinstein at Carnegie Hall on Valentines Day and played at The Cutting Room in NY just the night before. Yet, Bucky doesnt get puffed up with his success like many other artists, Laub said. He always takes time for everyone to speak to him. Where ever we go, this guy is adored because of his smile and his warm, friendly nature. Indeed, Buckys musical resume is quite impressive. He was a member of Johnny Carsons Tonight Show band, played at the White House multiple times, toured with Benny Goodman off and on until his death in 1986, and recorded performances on albums, although not his own. Bucky will get as much enjoyment playing at a hot dog stand than he does at Carnegie Hall, Laub said, adding that they have indeed played the whole supermarket circuit. Laub went on, They all (even the most humble of venues) are important to him. He loves being in front of people and doing what he does. Laub told of an interesting coincidence when he auditioned for Bucky so he could become his student. Laub, who is in his early 60s now, was only 16 years old at the time. Bucky heard something familiar in Laubs performance, and said to Laub: Where did you learn that? It turned out that Laub had taken a lesson from a professional musician named Bobby Dominick, who lo and behold was Buckys uncle. Wikipedia tells us that Pizzarelli began his professional career at 17 when he joined the Vaughn Monroe dance band in 1944.

Sheriffs Emergency Response Team Is Elite, And Now, County-Wide

Morris County Clerk Ann F. Grossi Brings Strong Management, And Excellent Legal Background To County

By Ejvind Boccolini he brand new Morris County Sheriffs Emergency Response Team is now a county-wide effort, including law enforcement officials not only from within the Sheriffs Office, but those selected from law enforcement agencies around the county. Those individuals with the highest qualifications and skill level earned their place on this elite team, which now includes 16 selected officers, in addition to the 17 from the Sheriff's Office (from two different bureaus - the Bureau of Law Enforcement and the Bureau of Corrections) that were selected prior to the recent testing. The S.E.R.T (Sheriff's Emergency Response Team) Commander Eugene Fluri, was interviewed recently by the Morristown News about his background and philosophies behind this difficult law enforcement work. Fluri served 26 years with the state police, and retired as the regional commander (captain) in Troop B (northern New Jersey). Before that he was the station commander with the Marine Service Unit, in Port Newark, NJ, and previously a member of an elite emergency response unit in another region of New Jersey. He started his career by serving 10 years on the road as a New Jersey State Trooper. His extensive experience and training will lend itself well to the S.E.R.T. unit, and now Sheriff Edward Rochford is mentioning how honored he is to have Fluri as Commander. Fluri calls it a "unique opportunity" because this is a now county-wide effort and the first time Morris County has an emergency response unit like this one. "This team is brand new," Fluri said, adding that he likes the mentoring aspect. Fluri said his team has an excellent mix

of veteran officers; individuals with military experience; young, aspiring officers; and former tactical officers all with the strength, stamina, and know-how to make for a superb team. Im really happy with the selection, he said. These individuals chosen for the team have endured some of the most rigorous workouts and nurtured courage and determination for what can be, quite simply, very high-risk work. And the training is, indeed, continuous for members of this team. The selection process includes physical testing; firearm's testing; a verbal test; SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) training course; and a medical screening. All current members succeeded through these phases before being chosen, and then recently a ceremony was held in which they were officially sworn in. They perform search and rescue missions, respond to crimes, emergencies, natural disasters, high-risk arrests, and threats of all kinds to the community. They provide dignitary protection as well, and work with the secret service upon request. Fluri explained that sometimes, nothing much happens during certain portions of the day. But other times, a true emergency exists - or great danger exists - and SERT members put their high level of physical, mental and intuitive skills to work. Fluri said, with the individuals on the SERT team, "integrity has to be a huge, huge part of our personnel." They have to want the job for the right reasons, he said. In the course of providing their service to the county, they are continuing to train, and provide coverage in discreet ways as SERT members did for the Super Bowl though they were in plain clothes and not known to members of the public. continued on next page

By Ejvind Boccolini ew Morris County Clerk Ann F. Grossi was surprised when she learned about a job opening for county clerk, but her ability to successfully earn this title was no surprise, due to her great legal and management experience. In an interview with the Morristown News recently, Grossi, who is serving a five-year term as clerk until Dec. 31, 1018, said she did not know that previous clerk Joan Bramhall (who served from 1999 to 2013) was going to retire, but instead thought that Bramhall may serve another five years as clerk. Grossi previously thought about the possibility of serving as county clerk, but noted that she had plans to run for freeholder again a job which she enjoyed very much. But when Bramhall retired, Grossi noted that the opportunity presented itself and came out of left field. Now, Grossi thanks her helpful and impressive staff for its efficiency, and will continue to offer strong, and excellent public service. Grossi also wants to bring the clerks office to a new level of technology and open a satellite office perhaps in the Rockaway Townsquare Mall. Grossi said the clerks office is depository for legal documents - deeds, mortgages, trade names, and maps. It also issues passports, county ids, and veteran ids. Grossi herself has a strong legal background, having worked as an attorney with a private practice, and was a freeholder for 3 years in Morris County, on council in Parsippany, and served as council vice president. Grossi also worked for the state as Chief of Enforcement of the New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety, overseeing 5 offices and also 3 satellite offices. As an attorney, she is very well-versed in civil service, and union contracts negotiation and arbitration. She also served as counsel for several libraries in Morris County. As a freeholder in Morris County, she said the position gave me a full background for what the county does. Now, she has 34 individuals on staff not including the deputy. Grossi notes that the county performs a myriad of functions for its residents, some of which may be unknown to its community members. The many departments operate in a most effective way, working to keep matters in balance at all times.

Things get done because the county gets them done, said Grossi, adding that sometimes not everyone knows that tasks are being successfully completed and that it is the county officials and employees that achieve this for its residents. I have a great staff here, Grossi said, thanking her officials and employees. Grossi noted that she wants to enhance and automate, within reason, more facets of the county. She also wants the community to know they are open for business. The hours are 8 am to 4:30 pm, Mondaythrough Friday, with Registry recording offered until 4 pm. There are hours on Wednesday until 7 pm for passports only, and the location of the County Clerks office is the first floor of the Administration and Records Building on Court Street in Morristown. Residents of any New Jersey county can use the passport service. Grossi said there are many ancient documents on file in the clerks office, and gave an example by showing the 1906 Morris County Manual. It lists towns, legislative districts, county offices, commissions, and newspapers. I think a lot of people call us about passports, she said, adding that the office collects recording and filing fees. She said, through our fees the state gets the lion's share, and added that the clerks office receives a fee for every document they file. In 2012, the clerks office generated $36 million, and in 2013, $50 million. The county received about 7 or 8 million dollars in 2012, for example, and that is one tax point. The clerks office also has an online document research facility, in which community members can perform an official records continued on next page

continued from previous page public search, and Grossi said the clerks office is launching facebook page. Grossi said she wants to move the clerks office into a new level of technology, and this will include electronic transmissions with respect to additional services that the clerks office offers. The clerks office is not yet ready to do deeds with e-filing, but otherwise the clerks office is operational with respect to e-filing. Were looking forward to getting that

As clerk, Grossi also performs weddings, and the clerks office tabulates the results of the election process. This is tradition, as is the way they decide what order the names of candidates within a given contest will appear on a ballot. They have a "hat box in which they put the name of each candidate (written on a piece of paper) inside its own tiny glass container.

They will look to have a caravan schedule advertised, in which there will be a mobile unit out in the field where people can take advantage of the services. Grossi said the clerks office was established in 1739, and is one of three constitutional offices (county, sheriff and surro-

Fluri said his team trains for "all threats, all emergencies, all crimes." In addition some tasks mentioned in this article, SERT members provide local law enforcement agencies with assistance against active shooters, search and rescue operations, floods and other natural disasters, and train weekly for responding to these calls.

continued from previous page In Morris County, the emergency response team dates back to the early 1990s, though this is now the first time that all agencies in the county can participate, if selected.

Local Band "Art of Play" Qualifies for Semi-final Round of "Rock to the Top" after Winning First Round
were really happy to win. I think our confidence will help bring us to the semi-finals." Both Webber and Volk, a student at Randolph High School, mentioned that the win "felt really good" and that it was a great feeling knowing that the judges picked their band to go on to the semifinal round. All of the band members agree that their age and versatility is what helps to set them apart from the other performers. Many of the performers at "Rock to the Top" were considerably older than the members of Art of Play, who are all in high school. The band members also point out that their ability to take on different roles and switch things up makes them stand out from their competitors. Webber and Volk cite the various talents within the group, explaining that although everyone has a set role within the band, they are able to play different instruments when needed. According to Randazzo, "Other competitors are very restricted by the type of genre that they play, whether it's rock, pop, or hip-hop." He explains that while other bands "are restricted to one sound," Art of Play "is able to pull of performing multiple genres, including our original songs." Randazzo says, "One second we could be covering a Beatles tune, and the next second we could be playing an Eminem song. It keeps the audience on their toes." Webber also says that the band's "competitive drive" helped take them to the next round of competition. Shortly after the band formed, it started by performing at a number of community events throughout the state. Art of Play successfully auditioned for a spot on the famous Apollo stage in New York City for "Amateur Night at the Apollo." The band competed in the "Stars of Tomorrow" category, beating out all of their other competitors for a first place finish and going on to the "Show Off" round. The band does most of its recording in its basement studio, including the song "Love Struck," which is currently available on iTunes. When they are not performing live, the members of Art of Play enjoy songwriting and recording.

By Kate Halse ocal teen band recently competed in, and won "Rock to the Top," a competition for local bands that was held at The Stone Pony on February 9. The band's next appearance will be in the semi-final competition, which is set for Sunday, March 23. The band, which was formed in 2010, consists of Ricky Webber (keyboard, vocals), Tyler Volk (drums, vocals), Domenico Randazzo (guitar, drums, vocals) and TJ Coon (electric guitar, bass guitar, vocals). The band plays a number of musical genres, covering everything from rock to pop and rap to R&B. Art of Play covers their own versions of popular tunes as well as original compositions. The first round of the competition helped to build confidence among the band members, making the semi-final round less daunting. Randazzo, a Morristown High School student, notes, "Winning round one at the Stone Pony is definitely a huge confidence builder, and will only make it easier for us the next time since we're used to the stage and the sound system." Coon adds, "We
