The South Jersey based rock band will open the MMRBQ at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden on Saturday.
Blink and you might miss Laurel Springs, a tiny Camden County borough of 1,900 people along the White Horse Pike. But there’s a band with a big sound based in town, and on Saturday, they’ll be on the biggest stage of their young career. Kid Felix, a six-piece rock band made up of Camden County natives, will open this year’s MMRBQ at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden. The show is sponsored by Philadelphia radio station 93.3 WMMR-FM. Although Kid Felix is only celebrating its second anniversary as a band this month, they’ll share the stage Saturday with some rock veterans: hard-rock heavyweights Alice In Chains and Soundgarden, power-pop kings Cheap Trick, as well as Buckcherry and Device. The house probably won’t be near full when Kid …

Richard Kuklinski, a Bergen County man who killed more than 100 people, is the subject of director Ariel Vromen's new crime thriller.
A film based on the true story of one of New Jersey’s most notorious killers is set to hit select theaters this Friday. "The Iceman" tells the story of Dumont's Richard Kuklinski, from his ordinary family life to his introduction to the mob and his arrest for murder. Kuklinski said he killed more than 100 people, many during his time associated with the mafia in the 1970s and 80s. In the screenplay co-written by Morgan Land and director Ariel Vromen and based on a book by Anthony Bruno, Kuklinski initially appears to be a devoted family man but is soon found out to be ruthless hit man. Michael Shannon — of Boardwalk Empire and “Michael Shannon Reads the Insane Delta Gamma Sorority Letter” fame — portrays The Iceman, who got his nefarious…

Entering their final week of rehearsals, cast members fine tune this classic production.
Joey Quaile is dancing on the floor below the high school auditorium stage. His back is turned to the stage as he breaks out some truly retro moves, reminiscent of a time centered around poodle skirts and sock hops. In any other setting Quaile may look a little daft, but with roughly 30 students on stage behind him—following his every move—it’s is just another Wednesday rehearsal night for this choreographer. “He always likes to do a variety of dances in each show,” says assistant director Allison Sheppard of Quaile. Heading into their final week of rehearsals, cast members of the West Deptford High School spring musical Bye Bye Birdie are hard at work. Coming off the production centering around British aristocracy last year, this year it’…

Running until March 27, the art gallery features the works of approximately 400 West Deptford elementary students.
Ever wondered what Starry Night would look like if Vincent van Gogh had painted it in modern times? For some West Deptford elementary students, their renditions of the artist's most famous work will be one of the many exhibits featured in the West Deptford Free Public Library. Between elementary art teachers Gina Hicks and Kate Mathiesen, roughly 400 elementary students are featured in this year’s exhibit for Youth Art Month. After spending all morning and most of the afternoon hanging every piece of artwork, last Friday, the exhibit will remain in the library until March 27. “This is our celebration,” says Hicks. “This is what we do to bring attention to the arts.” An annual tradition that predates both Hicks and Mathiesen’s tenure in the…

West Deptford has already received commitments for $17,100 toward the 2013 summer concert series at RiverWinds.
West Deptford is off to a fast start in raising money through sponsorships for its summer concert series at RiverWinds. According to numbers from recreation director Greg Ley, the township has already received commitments for $17,100 worth of funding from vender fees and corporate sponsors. That amount is just over half of all of the money the township received in 2012. Last year, the township received a final amount of $33,750 from vendor fees and sponsors. Ley said the township hopes to continue to raise money. At a recreation advisory committee meeting last week, he encouraged board members to get local businesses to donate money to the concerts. He also said that the mayor's sponsorship letter for the concert has gone out. The township…
