"Benefit Concert for Haiti"

Vanilla Fudge Lead Guitarist Vince Martell performing music of the ‘60’s with his live group. His riff in the Vanilla Fudge chart topper, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” is ranked the number four heaviest guitar riff of all time by Guitar Magazine. Genetic Control, a Bronx based band that has been rocking the New York scene since the turn of the millennium. Johnny Seven, an experience not to be missed. Principal of The Hunts Point Middle School 424 in the South Bronx, this anti-folk veteran boasts four CDs, a killer live show and a line-up that hasn’t changed since its inception. Midlife, a group of assorted local Riverdale professionals — doctors, lawyers and businessmen — plays 60s, 70s and 80s hits. Jeremy Bar-Illan was a pioneer of the Power Pop trend in the late 70s and early 80s as a member of The Touchtones and The Moberlys. In the early 90s he introduced The Woodpeckers, and later explored the Rave world of Techno and House Music. Sigal, a native of Israel, studied voice with Agnes Massini. She joined the academy’s Opera Studio and played a variety of operatic roles. Headliner: Vince Martell, Vanilla Fudge Lead Guitarist.

"Riverdale Reaches For Its Stars"

Genetic Control, whose guitarist and vocalist, Charlie Schiller, was responsible for a popular Haiti benefit at the YM-YWHA last year, also got hips swinging and fingers tapping. Like all the artists who performed, he said he jumped at the opportunity to help a good cause.

“We’re very passionate about the wellbeing of youth,” Mr. Schiller said.

Genetic Control (the American band) was born and raised in the Bronx. The core of Charlie, David, Danny and Greg's musical cohesiveness is their years  of friendship starting in their early teens. Their influences include The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Steely Dan, Nirvana and many other great artists who have stayed true to their rock roots. They approach their work with complexity at times and as fools at play at other times. They were groomed in long distance shrines of the past such as CBGB's, The Continental and Le Bar Bat and continue to perform in such legendary venues as The Knitting Factory, Highline Ballroom and The Bitter End. They're in it for the long haul!
