Today marks the event I look forward to every year: The Annual Teen Arts Festival held at Bergen Community College. Aside from various workshops for aspiring artists, writers, dancers, and musicians, an open mic, hosted by Ray Ippolito, is held on the green yard in front of the campus. Many great acts perform every year. I’m pretty excited because not only will I be performing, but some great acts are bound to be there, some of which I have reviewed in my underground spotlight series. No matter who gets on stage, it’s a party no music lover would want to miss.

If you haven’t heard her sing, just know that her voice will blow your mind. Melanie Sunga is a talented vocalist from Englewood who I met at the festival back in 2013. I’m hoping she’ll take the stage this year to amaze the crowd yet again.

This lyricist is who I’m really excited for. I just hope the crowd will be able to keep up with his word play. Cast, also hailing from Englewood, NJ, will be attending the festival. I hope he takes the stage.

Jerard Guevarra has taken the Teen Arts stage in the past and played cover songs on his acoustic guitar in recent years. Being that he now has an EP under his belt, I’m hoping he will perform some of his original songs, which I just know the crowd will love. Teen Arts is especially kind to indie rock and alternative artists. His music should fit well in the show’s long lineup.

It is also great that every year new artists pop up out of nowhere that have really mastered their craft and can carry a great performance. Teen Arts usually has everything for the artistically inclined adolescent, and everyone who has attended in the past knows how fun it is to meet up with fellow artists, and make friends with new ones. Its going to be a blast. If you ending up missing the action, I feel sorry for you, but don’t worry: It’ll be on social media, probably right as the festival is happening. Just Google the hashtag #TeenArts2015, and I’m sure you’ll find great coverage.

“It’s gonna be lit!!!” -Jerard Guevarra
Peace.
