Jane Kelly Williams and Friends

Originally from Georgia, Jane arrived in New York City and made her American debut on Mercury Records with Tapping the Wheel. She had a Top 10 Contemporary radio hit with Breaking into the Past and another single Show Me How To Catch a Fish which was featured in the movie Picture Perfect starring Jennifer Aniston. 

Recently, Jane performed with Victoria Clark (Tony Award Winner and star of A Light at the Piazza) at Lincoln Center's esteemed American Songbook Series, where Victoria sang 3 of Jane's songs. For the inauguration of the same series, Audra McDonald (4 time Tony Award Winner) performed Jane's song Wonderful You and then included it on her 2006 CD release Build a Bridge (Audra McDonald).

Jane also has initiated 3 concert/presentations called Songs for Darfur to benefit refugees in Darfur and is completing her debut release on Sojourn Records.


Choice: Jersey City's Bad Boys of A Capella

The 5 members of Choice have been singing together for 35 years. This may explain the perfection in their seamless harmonies, which went viral in the fall of 2015.  
That was when a passerby filmed 3 members of the ensemble
Ira Jackson, Melvin "Malik" Wright, and Dwayne "Rahim" Guzman—singing to a friend on Claremont Avenue. The song was The Futures' 1973 "Love is Here,” and the woman who filmed it  posted the short video on Facebook. Within days, that video garnered more than 6 million views, letting the world in on what was once one of Jersey  City’s best-kept secrets.

The Trouble Sisters and
Breakneck Ridge Revue


Breakneck Ridge Revue is a folk "jam band" of Hudson Valley musicians building twangy but danceable sets around a mix of traditional and original songs ranging from blues to folk to rock--from John Prine to the Beatles--but always with a homegrown feel.

Northern Valley Regional High School at Demarest's Jazz Band

The NVRHS-Demarest Jazz Band is an auditioned ensemble at the high school.  This group comprised of 17 musicians rehearses once a week.  Performances include three concerts, Tri-M Music Honor Society Jazz Cafe, and the Senior Awards night.
