MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Indie rock band Monogold and students from the Renaissance Youth Center will be featured artists Tuesday night at Mount Vernon’s Summer Breeze Concert Series.
The Mount Vernon Summer Breeze Concert Series presents residents with different genres of music, twice a week, in the city. All concerts kick off at 7 p.m. on the steps of City Hall. Artists specialize in everything from Caribbean and R&B to hip-hop and gospel.
Monogold is a three-piece band that hails from Brooklyn, comprised of band members Keith Kelly, Jared Apuzzo and Mike Falotico. They’re performed internationally and were a featured band at the press release for Google Music in Los Angeles.
The Renaissance Youth Center provides performance-based music instruction in the south Bronx. Students routinely tour the tri-state area and are accepted into performing arts high school and colleges. They recently introduced “Music With A Message,” a program that utilizes song to help troubled youth deal with their problems.
On Saturday, there will be a gospel showdown, featuring clergy members from around Mount Vernon and Westchester County. The show will be hosted by Mount Vernon-native Deborah Womack-Irizarry, who has become an established name in the gospel music community.
