Fairfield University’s many talented alumni bands played a memorable role in the Fairfield County music scene in the mid-to-late 1980s. Several of those musicians are reuniting for a special concert on June 7, 2024 for Fairfield University’s Reunion Weekend. The concert, open to the public and all Fairfield University alumni, will provide a nostalgic evening of cover music across a variety of genres and generations. Shelter Pets is a cuddly but untamed rock band comprised of Fairfield U alumni Bill Van Wart ’89, Ben de la Cruz ’89, Peter Bongiorno ’90, and Dennis O’Brien ’88. The Pets are all ex-members of alternative rock band When I Woke, with Van Wart from FU band Broken Bottles and O’Brien an original member of Split Decision. The Adults, comprised of members of the alumni bands Broken Bottles, Johnny and the Favorites, Mitch & Jim, and Cosmic Embryo, have made music together since 1985. They provide "Adult Entertainment For Kids Who Are Alright," performing a wide range of rock, country, indie, instrumental, and original music. Band members include Bill Conroy ’91, Peter Grennan ’89, Jim Sheridan ’89, Paul Simonetta ’89, and Gene Tiernan ’89. Johnny and the Favorites members (Peter Bongiorno '90, Michael Fitzgerald '89, Mark Grieco '90, Jim Hannon '89, Kevin Kuryla '88, Brian Machler '87, and Paul Simonetta '89) will reunite to bring their biggest hits of cover music from their college era, from Bruce to The Cure and anything else you might’ve heard on WLIR or WNEW. Let’s go back in time to Club Tip Toe, the Sea Grape, Woods End or the Point, ’cause We’re Having a Party!
