Interlochen Students To Open For Bon Jovi

March 24, 2017

Five singer-songwriter students from Interlochen Arts Academy have been selected to open for Bon Jovi at their April 5 show at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh. The students won the right through a Live Nation-sponsored contest taking place throughout Bon Jovi's 2017 This House Is Not For Sale Tour.

The five students selected to perform are: Grace Baer of Lafayette, California; Marley Harris-Deans of Las Vegas, Nevada; Ally Lubera of La Grange, Illinois; Taylor Meloche of Windsor, Ontario; and Jesse Munsat of Washington, D.C. The five students (pictured), all seniors, recently completed a west coast tour during which they performed at Disneyland, the Hotel Cafe and Idyllwild Arts Academy, and attended a master class with Aqualung’s Matt Hales.

According to the Bon Jovi website, the Academy singer-songwriters have “demonstrate(d) that they have the sound, style, and substance to open an arena show.”
