Beautiful Noize Concert Article "Beautiful Noize Is Coming" by Perpetua Romain, Editor-In-Chief of The Torch BCC Student Newspaper! Read Below #Superb

Get ready for the most exciting spring event Bergen has ever seen. For the first time ever, Bergen Community College is hosting a student produced concert and it truly has been long awaited. The Black Student Union (BSU) in association with the Student Activities Board (SAB) presents Beautiful Noize Entertainment, live in concert on April 7th at 7:30 p.m. in the gymnasium, featuring various opening performances by our very talented Bergen students.

Beautiful Noize Entertainment is an independent record label based in Burbank, California. Founded in 2009 by CEO Jaquan Barnett and Alshan Barnett, it is currently comprised of four emcees and two R&B singers including our upcoming guests, Artis, Big Tone, Ming, Madison Kaine and Q. These members are focused on creating a movement of independent music, designed to uplift communities as well as encourage change in our society.

Since the massive distribution of their released mix tapes, Artis- “Raising The Bar” and Big Tone- “Mic Theory,” that took place at Bergen on December 15, 2010 by members of the BSU, this concert has been talked about for months. With the aid and guidance of the Office of Student Life, this event will definitely be exactly what the students need to officially welcome in the spring.

Students who attend this Spring Hip Hop Concert 2011 are truly in for a treat. When you mix in special hosts Augusto Suarez and the lovely Amjay Jimenez, you know the show will be spectacular. Starting off the show will be Precious Frazier, president of BCC’s Dance Club, along with her team of dancers. They will be performing crowd pleasing pieces along with a step show. “We are very excited to perform in front of the students,” said Frazier. The Dance Club has been preparing for this event since the commencement of the spring semester. Their performance at this concert is but a mere prelude to their own concert event, taking place the very next night in Ender Hall Lab Theater.

Our next Bergen student performers will be R&B sensation, David Lomax, known as Lomax vi L’Avenir along with Randy Hale, known as BrandNewJersey. Lomax has performed at many events hosted by Bergen including the recent Black Business Summit, hosted by Hot 97’s Uncle Ralph McDaniels, as well as a show at the Bergen Performing Arts Center. “It would be really cool to open up for Beautiful Noize,” said Lomax. “My favorite song is [Artis’] Feel Me.” Lomax will be singing tracks off his upcoming album, “Words Not Spoken,” which drops April 20th.

Closing off the opening acts for the main event is our very own Bergen Band, Isaac’s Horizon. Isaac’s is a heavy funk band, known for their high energy shows and technical proficiency. They’ve performed all over the New York and New Jersey area including colleges such as Montclair State University, Spokane Community College, the State University of New York and our home, BCC. With Chris Gellar on the drums and Bergen students Richard Maddolin on the bass/backing vocals; Johnnez Pantinilla playing lead guitar/backing vocals and Joey Taylor on guitar/lead vocals, you can be sure to feel the funk from the speakers. Isaac’s incorporates new stylistic elements while tying them together into a fluid core of progressive groove. “It’s an honor to perform for BSU and Beautiful Noize,” said Taylor. “I heard their music and they have some really good stuff.”

Finally, the highly anticipated main event; Artis will take the stage with his label mates and DJ NahSla to move the crowd with favored tracks off their released mix tapes as well as unreleased tracks, said to truly motivate and excite the audience with real Hip Hop. This concert offers something for everyone; students, alumni, faculty, family. What better way to support the unity and production efforts of the Bergen student body other than to attend? Tickets are on sale in the Office of Student Life at $5 for students and $7 for general admission.
