The event was hosted by Cherioke of Rubix Kube — the ultimate 80’s Tribute — and featured a rock fashion show, renowned heavy metal DJ Alex Kayne, cool giveaways and more. There was even an air guitar contest where a hot blond girl won because she air strummed Jimi Hendrix’s “Foxy Lady.” In addition, every ticket sold in advance sponsors a kindergarten kid from P.S. 52 in Brooklyn to attend a concert that the Z Brothers — ZO2’s alter ego kid’s band — will donated to the school on January 18. ZO2 members Paulie Z., David Z. and Joey Cassata, stars of IFC’s hit television comedy series “Z-Rock,” play a rock band by night and a children’s party act, the Z Brothers, by day. However, the show mirrors the group’s real life. The Z Brothers have been performing together for 10 years. Paulie, David and Joey formed ZO2 in 2002 and have released three news songs in the last three months: Heart of Confusion, I Will be Alright and A Million Pieces — all available on I-Tunes — as well as three albums: Tuesdays and Thursdays; Ain’t it Beautiful; and Casino Logic. ZO2 has toured with KISS and Poison and opened for acts such as Bret Michaels and Alice Cooper.
