MORRISTOWN — Morris County is getting its own version of Madison Square Garden’s 12-12-12 concert to benefit superstorm Sandy victims. While Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi won’t be appearing, organizers promise a great night of music at Sand Aid.
The concert takes place at Morristown High School from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Friday and will benefit the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief fund (www.sandynjrelief fund.org) created by Gov. Chris Christie.
The event was organized by Art of Play, a Morristown-based band of four 14-year-old high school freshman boys: guitarist Domenico Randazzo, keyboardist Ricky Webber, bassist T.J. Coon and drummer Tyler Volk.
“We knew about the devastation and wanted to help,” Tyler said.
“Who wouldn’t want to help?” added Domenico. “We were all affected, and we all know people affected. With this concert people can support a good cause and be entertained. Two birds with one stone.”
The band has close ties to Long Beach Island, which was hit hard by superstorm Sandy. In addition to performing in the area several times, two band members had summer homes damaged in the storm.
