The Church Street Summer proudly presents OXYGEN BOX, Saturday, August 11, 7:00-10:00 pm, performing outdoors on the corner of Church Street and Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair The band comprises guitarist and vocalist Wilson (Stan) Chery, lead guitarist and producer Malvo509, vocalist Natalie Alese, accompanied by talented musicians. This northern New Jersey group is on a mission to re-train the world to love. Long time friends Malvo509 and Wilson started the band in Tampa, Florida. Seeking to change settings and explore new opportunities, the two came to New Jersey where they met Natalie Alese and the group became what it is today.
A unique mix between genres and cultures; both Wilson and Malvo were born in Haiti, while Natalie is an African American with Jamaican descendants. In light of the above, they unite with musicians coming from various parts of the world to bring fresh air with their music. Oxygen Box is a live band making audiences dance or feel like starting a revolution to the sounds of Reggae, think about our society with its Hip Hop, get energized with its Rock, feel the love with its R&B and have their spirits stirred with its Soul. It’s not just music, but a movement. Oxygen Box self-released their EP, Soul Surgery in June of last year.
The popular Thursday and Saturday night outdoor summer concert series is managed and hosted by Meg Beattie, Julian Keenan and Greg Spinelli, who sometimes do a set or two themselves. In the event of inclement weather, the concerts move indoors to Tapastry Restaurant’s main dining room at 12 Church Street, Montclair.
Tapastry owners, Cheryl and Greg Spinelli, are happy to present the annual music festival each year and to have an opportunity to foster the arts alongside serving up their exciting al fresco tapas dining experience. Tapastry's authentic menu is created by Chef Gonzolo Fernandez. BYOB. No Cover.
