Musical band Reverse Order will stop in Franklin Lakes on Oct. 8 during their nationwide anti-bullying tour, which will include performances and speaking engagements at elementary, middle and high schools across the nation.

Reverse Order will perform at Woodside Avenue Elementary School on Wednesday, Oct. 8.

The mission of the tour is simple: to be a voice, to connect, to encourage. “We have all been bullied at some point in our lives, even celebrities are bullied, and we want students to know that they are not alone and they can overcome this obstacle and achieve greatness,” said lead singer John Russo.

This is just one stop on a 30 week tour that will bring them to more than 150 schools. Reverse Order has already brought their “Reverse the Trend” anti-bullying concert and assembly to numerous schools in dozens of states. The performances received rave reviews including.

“Reverse The Trend” is a program that combines a concert with an assembly, engaging and exciting the students with music they will enjoy, while teaching them how to overcome bullying. Reverse Order continues the assembly, sharing their individual stories of how they were bullied, and how they overcame it in a safe and positive way.

The pop/rock band, who is from New Jersey, was a semi-finalist on America’s Got Talent. They’ve performed with acts like Third Eye Blind, The Backstreet Boys and they’ve released three EP’s which can be found on iTunes. They released their anti-bullying song, Not Alone (Life is Beautiful) ft. Shanica Knowles (Disney, MTV) on iTunes Oct. 1 for National Bullying Prevention Month.
