RockOn + Berkshire Rocks + Two Stages
= June 16th, 3rd Thursday!!
RockOn veterans, Distant Shock A Fate Forgotten The Interlopers Music Ruthie Hannah Kirchner Christine Bile, Jenna May, & Built on Rock take the Berkshire Rocks stage. 3rd Thursday activities will start at the City Hall Stage and expand to a new stage at Crown Plaza as well!
There are 8 acts playing on the Berkshire Rocks stages this 3rd Thursday and most of the musicians involved have attended Rock On! Workshops. With all the options every summer that is a very significant statistic.
This 3rd Thursday marks the live debut of A Fate Forgotten (AFF) a band of 15 year old musicians from the Berkshires and Pioneer Valley. AFF will be playing a 30 minute set at the Berkshire Rocks stage on City Hall steps, has 6 original songs and has been offered slots opening for some of the most popular metal bands in Western MA. A Fate Forgotten has gone through over 300 ear plugs and blown fuses all over the Berkshires and has not even been together one year.
How do 5 teens with sports and school reach this point so quickly? Practice – yes. Desire – yes. Dedication – of course. But Matt Geyer and Will Matica also talk of the way they got to know each other well and came up started to form their band as a result of attending the Rock On! workshop in 2010. No matter how far AFF reaches it’s roots will always remain in the Berkshires.
