ATTENTION NEW MUSICIANS: We have 4 levels of groups available to most musicians.

Fall 2022 Full Performance groups: Creedence Clearwater, The Black Keys vs the White Stripes, Garage Rock, The Ramoes, and the Best of the 80s.

About our Full Performance Group Bands: We will start creating bands and casting the first songs as soon as as possible. There are only a limited number of slots per instrument in each show. On our Google form you will rank your show and rehearsal time preferences. While we try our best to give everyone their top choice, we cannot guarantee that it will happen.  Your parent and instructor must sign off on your rankings. Shows and rehearsal times do fill up - therefore we ask that you fill this out ASAP! 

To be totally transparent about how we create the bands: our #1 criteria is the education benefits of each show. We want to place students in groups that provide a balance of educationally challenging materials for them and their instrument. We don't want students to pick "group A" because their friends are in "group A." They may be at a different point in their educational journey.

IMPORTANT NOTE: There is a one-time, non-refundable show fee of $100 for joining either Full Performance or Rock 101. The show fee will be charged as soon as you are placed in a group.

Rehearsals will start the week of September 26, 2022

Mid-Season show is November 19, 2022 (is only for Full Performance).

End of Season Shows will be the weekend of January 28, 2023 *please be available for the whole weekend. There will be shows on both Saturday and Sunday.

Please note these Mandatory Rehearsal Dates: The week of 11/14 (before midseason) & The week of Jan 16 and Jan 23 (before the end of Season shows).
