Tyler Sarfert, who is 17 will be the opening act. From his bio: “On March of 2014 I played my first show with some of my closest friends. I started doing this for the love of music, but I feel like I am called to do more than to just play music and promote myself. At any show I play I try to always have a positive attitude and be a good influence on the people that are around me. I have done an assembly at an Elementary school for fifth graders going into middle school to promote making good choices, and to find positive friends and hobbies. Through my music I am trying to spread something more than simply my songs, but to be a light in the dark place that can be seen throughout the music scene right now. To make money I give drum lessons to five students and record local bands, musicians, and artists in the studio I have recently finished in my basement.In school I play/write music, at work I teach/record music, and for fun I play music at church and strive to be a better musician daily. Music has taken over my life, and I hope to do something bigger than myself with it. I have seen lives change because how powerful it can be, and I’m thankful for every opportunity I get to play somewhere and share what I love. If my purpose was just to get myself ahead in life then I would be disappointed often. But when I intentionally try to make someone’s day better through what I have been blessed to be able to do, which is music, is so much more rewarding. Music has been my life since I was ten, and it will continue to be my life until I can’t move anymore.”
Featured headliners, Justin and Alina, got their start as the opening act, for the popular cover band The Nerds. This has led to countless performances throughout the tri-state area for them. After finding their niche as a brother and sister pop duo, their experience on stage stretches from intimate coffee house settings to to the PNC Arts Center…and it continues to stretch on.
Their music offers a unique harmony-driven, edgy-fun, and upbeat pop/rock style which always pulls their fans in for a great time. One of their most popular hits, “My Sweet Anonymous,” was named the Winner of the JAM Awards for Top Song of the Year. Most recently, they performed their latest single, “Quit Clownin Around,” on CBS’s Zach Sang and the Gang live on the air (soon to be released). This season they are most excited to share the rest of what they’ve been working on so far in the year 2014.
