Levon Helm Studios 160 Plochmann Ln, Woodstock, NY
Neil Young is also one of the most celebrated musical artists in history. His lyrics are deeply personal and combined with his high tenor voice are deeply emotionally stirring. Because of his absolute disgust with Spotify, this playlist will be formed on Youtube and won’t be released in the normal way, but I suggest you start by listening to the album Harvest or After the Gold Rush. This show is great for all skill levels.
Nu Metal is what happened when Heavy Metal met Hip-Hop and they started hanging out with Alternative Rock, Funk and Grunge. It also features very aggressive vocals, heavily syncopated riffs and at times terrifying imagery such as masks. Great for all skill levels. Join this show if you want to learn how to scream.
Sir Elton John is one of the most celebrated and decorated singers, songwriters and performers Rock music has ever seen. This year is the 50th anniversary of the release of the song Rocketman which effectively launched his career as a solo artist (pun intended). One would be hard pressed to find someone on the planet who hasn’t heard an Elton John song. This show will feature lots of keyboards and is great for all skill levels.
Arena Rock is a genre that dominated radio in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Bands like Foreigner, Journey, Heart, Jefferson Starship, Cheap Trick and the late great Meatloaf…the list goes on and on. Marked by skilled guitar solos, soaring vocal harmonies and power ballads, many of these songs were instant classics. This show is great for all skill levels.
Queens of Soul is a show that celebrates ladies with powerful voices. Artists such as Aretha Franklin, Mavis Staples, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Adele among others. There will be many ballads and athletic vocalizations in this show. A great show for all skill levels.
