Whether you’re into rock, hard-core, pop punk, emo, indie, experimental or rap, Cabrini has many bands all around campus that will fit your genre of music. Music is not just sounds made from instruments and vocals, it’s a way of life.

Mike Miller, a freshman English and communication major, is a DJ that goes by the name of DJ Intake. Miller is from Bergen County, North Central, NJ and started to DJ his freshmen year of high school shortly after being inspired by sister’s ex-boyfriend.

“I DJ because I love music, I love everything about it the drums, the beats, the flow everything and I want people to be as passionate about music as I am,” Miller said. “I hope that one day I’ll be able to start my own music label and be a producer.”

Etienne Cicilia, a freshman undecided major, is from Drexel Hill, PA. He is the drummer for a hard-core band called “Retaliation.” His band has played with many known hard-core bands all throughout the Philadelphia area like Passion and Barricade.

“I started playing the drums in grade 8 because the drums have no boundaries, no rules and is limitless,” said Cicilia. His band is planning on playing in the spring at major venues in the Philadelphia area and hope to get signed and tour all throughout the U.S.

Sean Gavigan, a freshman marketing and fine arts major, is from Vineland, NJ. He is in a band called “The Blue Season,” and is the bassist as well as the back-up vocalist.

“Truthfully, I started to play the guitar just to get chicks but when the Blue Season formed it turned into more than just getting the girls,” Gavigan said. Gavigan and the Blue Season played with famous bands like Halifax and Over It and went on a Northeastern tour from New York to Virginia with the known band called For Felix.

“Six guys in a Suburban truck driving all over the East coast was definetly an experience and, as musicians, we felt like we were living the dream,” Gavigan said. Gavigan hopes to have his band record their second album on a well established indie label and become extremely successful. On Sept. 29 his band is playing with Cartel and The Early November in his hometown of Vineland, NJ.

Last but not least is probably the most known act of them all around the Cabrini campus, Jen Davis from Cheshire, CT and is a sophomore English and secondary education major. She won the first open mic of the year in Jazzman’s Caf
