Let’s go back to the birth of Rock And Roll with the 50s Prom! From the minute Rock Around The Clock was seen by millions of young people around the globe, Rock N Roll has been here to stay. Explore the earliest pioneers of our school’s namesake with artists like Bill Haley, Little Richard, The Drifters, The Shirelles, The Everly Brothers and many more. There will be suits, dresses, dance hall decorations and a prom vibe on this show. A great show for all skill levels.
The Police are one of the biggest English New Wave bands of all time. A quick listen will tell you why. Hits like Roxanne, Wrapped Around Your Finger, So Lonely, Every Little Thing She Does is Magic and Synchronicity still sound fresh to this day, over 30 years later. Combining Jazz, Reggae and Punk Rock, The Police’s sound and legend will likely be with us for another 30. A great show for all skill levels, but tricky – prepare to work hard
Who runs the world? Girls! This show will celebrate girl power in all of its sonic forms. Women do not need to be approved of by men, conform to men’s ideas, or be regulated by men. Women have fought the patriarchy in soul, rock, pop and more, but rarely get the visability and respect their male counterparts do. Let’s do our part to change that! Songs from Bikini Kill, Patti Smith, Hole, Janis Joplin and so many more. A great show for all skill levels with the caveat that there will be limited keyboard slots in this show.
The Grammy award winning Prince of Motown Marvin Gaye was groundbreaking in every sense of the word. Songs range from sweet love songs to full torch songs to social justice anthems that are often imitated, but never duplicated. He was not only instrumental in shaping the sound of the hit machine that was Motown, but influenced other genres of music as well. Challenging, but worth it for all instruments. Join this show if you are prepared to work hard.
Hands down, THE greatest rock band of all time, there was nothing Led Zeppelin couldn’t do. This show will attempt to touch on the important points of Zeppelin’s career with a few surprises thrown in. This will be a great show for all ability levels and all instruments. Join this show if you want to learn to solo on what ever instrument you play. There are tons of solos, sometimes all happening at once. It is fun if you even get it close to right and face-melting if you actually get it right. Prepare to rock in this show.
