We hope that you can make it out to celebrate Caroline‚Äôs life and offer support and love to her family. Bands coming out to volunteer their support for this are: Montclair’s own Clockwork Agents, featuring Andy & Billy from the Flemtones as well as Gerry Griffin and Miguel Rodriguez; The Suckerman Band, featuring Harry Cirillo, CJ Sciosia, & Gerry Ross; and The Gutter Kings, featuring Scott Cumming, Tony Fernandez, Cory Robinson & Nelson Popp… not to mention more surprises.

Caroline was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer in June 2012 and fought bravely through surgeries and treatment over the past year. On June 26, 2013 she passed away surrounded by loving friends and family. Caroline, who grew up in West Orange and Caldwell, was a beautiful, charming, and intelligent young woman, who had recently graduated from East Stroudsburg University. She will be missed dearly and remembered by all those who had the chance to know her.
