Live!@the Pier – Lakehouse Music Academy’s Junior Pros


Monday, June 12 at 6:30 PM & 7:30 PM


Festival Plaza


Bring a lawn chair or blanket to Festival Plaza to enjoy this week’s featured performers.

The Lakehouse “Junior Pros” are Lauren Gill (vocals, 11), Oliver Van Nostrand (guitar, 11), Ryan Graci (guitar, 12), Zayka Kennedy (bass, 13), and Jeremy Orienza (12, drums). These amazingly talented young musicians have been a band for 3 years (starting at 9 or 10 years old!), and their list of accomplishments reads like a band that has been together for decades. Some of their performance credits include: The Prudential Center for a New Jersey Devils game, The NJ Hall of Fame Red Carpet Ceremony, a Lakehouse performance with Max Weinberg, a performance of “Livin’ on a Prayer” for Bon Jovi at Lakehouse Music Academy, and a performance with Bruce Springsteen at the Paramount Theater at the world premiere of “Just Before The Dawn,” a documentary that the band is featured in. The Junior Pros have played hundreds of gigs, love playing music together, sound like a band well beyond their years, and are learning the ways of professional music at very young ages!
