Viva Vallenato brings blazing accordion melodies and dangerous percussion. This authentic Cumbia rhythm of Columbia is guaranteed to make you dance! These raw grooves were born in small fishing villages on the Atlantic Coast of South America. This is the original “trance dance”, long before raves and electronica. Viva Vallenato will play the raucous songs of Colombia from the 40s, 50s and 60s that have not been heard in generations.


No Vertebrae

No Vertebrae is a ska/punk band consisting of four Kittatinny students and three recent Kittatinny graduates. They put on an energetic live show, with an emphasis on having fun and engaging the audience. They frequent local venues like The Stanhope House, have played at community events such as Newton Day and Fredon Day, and have branched out to further places like Roxy & Dukes in Dunellen and The Canvas Clash in Boonton. Wherever they take their show, No Vertebrae takes their energy with them and hopes the audience does too.
