July 13, 2013 | 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Lower Cape May Regional High School
687 Rte 9, Cape May, NJ 08204 United States

Additional Information

Students, faculty and alumni band together for an evening of celebration and appreciation for a beloved teacher.  Paul J. Mathis was an English teacher at Lower Cape May Regional and the director of the school’s theater program and musicals for over 30 years. He was the type of teacher whose unwavering passion and spirit influenced thousands of students over the years, many of whom have gone on to their own career in the arts.

Now, those same students, faculty and alumni whom Mr. Mathis influenced have spontaneously come together to hold a night of celebration and appreciation for their teacher and friend, who passed away recently after a battle with cancer.

Headlining the benefit concert will be Ventura, California’s Army of Freshmen, an internationally known rock band that was formed by Cape May born and raised Chris Jay, a graduate of LCMR. Army of Freshmen have performed over 1,500 shows in 15 countries and 43 states, have been heard and seen in several films and TV shows and recently released their critically acclaimed 5th full length record.

The bill also includes LCMR alumni, Adam Mcdonough, a burgeoning singer songwriter now based in the New York City area, as well as Stellar Mojo, the popular South Jersey band that features LCMR alumni, along with, Old School, an all teacher band featuring some of Mr. Mathis’ closest friends.

The night will also feature a guest appearance by Jeff Coon, an LCMR graduate who has gone onto fame in the world of theater and first worked under Mr. Mathis in several high school musicals.

In addition, several LCMR alumni will be presenting a dance tribute to Mr. Mathis featuring a medley of past musicals and the night will also feature a massive array of raffle prizes.

It promises to be a special event to honor a man who spent his life giving so much.

The event is sponsored by TRI-M Music Honor Society.

Donations, as well as raffle prizes, are greatly appreciated. Please contact Mr. J’s Music Shop at 609-886-4646 for more information.

Proceeds from the event to benefit the Mathis Family and the Love of Linda Fund.
