PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Pace arts and entertainment management majors April Rose Gabrielli and Heather Brown will be rocking out alongside The Serotones, Gates, Young Statues and The City On Film at Amityville Music Hall on Long Island on Saturday, Jan. 10.
Both students are putting their majors to work at Pace and in the band. Gabrielli, who serves as the student coordinator for the arts and entertainment management program, is The Serotones' pianist and one of the two vocalists and also works on some band management, including helping construct a social media marketing plan and branding and designing the band's website. "Being a business major in the arts and entertainment management program at Pace has allowed me to link up with people like Heather to help bring this band to another level," said Gabrielli. "It's really difficult to strike gold with good creative and administrative team members, but being at Pace has not only given me access to an extremely supportive community but a plethora of talented and intelligent young people to network with." Brown is also gaining valuable networking experience, both as the band’s manager, working primarily on public relations, and as president of Pace's Industry Network for arts and entertainment management. "Being a part of the arts and entertainment management program has introduced me to real world professionals in the industry that have given me advice of what the industry is like right now and what to expect in the future,” says Brown.
The Serotones present a different perspective of alternative rock music by fostering an electrifying blend of rock, funk, and jazz to create one cohesive, feel-good sound. The Serotones tastefully display their satisfying grooves and stylistic diversity on their debut EP release titled "The Serotones." The EP was produced by Mike Watts (The Dear Hunter, As Tall As Lions) and recorded at VuDu Studios on Long Island, and touches on themes that relate to all of us: deception, love, longing, chaos and liberation. The band can be found at www.theserotones.com and on social media: Facebook: TheSerotonesBand Twitter and Instagram: @theserotones Tumblr: theserotones.tumblr.com . Their music can be found on more than 20 different platforms, including: Spotify: http://open.spotify.com/album/7uiBTy9yB9zckfwBD5Qows . iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/the-serotones/id918012257 .
