On November 17, 2018, Cocotazo Media (cocotazomedia.com) and You Don’t Know Jersey (youdontknowjersey.com) will host a performance for the release of Stuff This in Yer Face!, a benefit compilation supporting the Human Needs Pantry in Montclair. This benefit show will feature Aquino, Larée Cisco, Deivito, Sonofdov, Dave Kleiner & Liz Pagan (of the Folk Project), Kevin & Oliver Liebkemann, David Rieth, Deena & Jon (of the band The Cucumbers). The album is a culmination of several years of songwriting challenges. In 2015, New Jersey musicians were given one month to write and record a Thanksgiving song based on a theme. The creations were released on the website You Don’t Know Jersey in time for Thanksgiving and has become an annual event. The benefit compilation will feature reworked versions of a selection of the songs from the challenges. Proceeds from the album and performance will benefit the Human Needs Food Pantry of Montclair. Since 1982 their mission is to offer, “…food, clothing, and other services to people in need who live in Montclair and neighboring communities in Essex County.”
The benefit performance will be held on November 17 at Stosh’s located at 18-15 Maple Ave. in Fair Lawn, New Jersey. The show will be free but monetary donations will be accepted. A limited run of CDs will be available for sale, and all proceeds will go to the Human Needs Pantry of Montclair. The show will begin at 7 pm. Stuff This in Yer Face! will be released on November 16 by Cocotazo Media, and You Don’t Know Jersey and will be available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and on other music purchasing or streaming sites.
