Brush High School students will seek to claim the title of “Best Rock Band” at
the 2014 Tri-C High School Rock Off “Final Exam”, which begins at 4 PM on
Saturday, February 1st at the House of Blues Cleveland. The
Independent features junior Mason Nozik (guitar, vocals), sophomore Michael
Taddeo (drums), senior Kevin Roche (bass, vocals), and senior Patrick
Farmer (guitar). The band was one of
only fifteen bands to be selected from an original pool of fifty-five other
high school musical groups to move on to the final round.
band members of The Independent have
been playing together for the past 2.5 years, and categorize their sound as
“alternative indie grunge rock”, citing modern bands such as Cage the
Elephant and Bloc Party as major musical influences. Tickets
for the upcoming “Final Exam” of the 2014 Tri-C High School Rock Off can be
purchased at either http://www.houseofblues.com/venues/clubvenues/cleveland or at House of Blues
Cleveland located at East Fourth and Euclid Avenue in downtown Cleveland.
South Euclid-Lyndhurst Schools would like to congratulate Mason Nozik, Michael
Taddeo, Kevin Roche and Patrick Farmer for their accomplishments thus far, and
wish them continued success for their upcoming performance on February 1st
in the Rock Off Final Exam!
