Garage Band

Grades 6-8

Are you looking to be part of a rock band and just can’t find the people, place to rehearse or music? Then come be part of the District 112 Garage Band. Since 2004, we have been providing students an innovative rock band experience like none other in the Twin Cities area. Play or sing everything from classic rock to the newest rock with other musicians who love it as much as you do. We are looking for singers, guitarists, keyboardists, bass players, drummers and horn players who have at least two years experience on their instruments. 

Performances at Chaska Rocks Toys For Tots on Saturday, December 9, the CMSW Talent Show on Friday, January 12, the Rock-It! Concert on Friday, February 2 and a closing event in February.

Audition is required. Auditions will be held on Monday, October 9 in the CMSW Band Room at 3:50 pm and Wednesday, October 11 in the PRM Band Room at 3:50 p.m.

Students should choose one of these dates. No sign up is necessary to audition. Audition material will be available in the PRMS, CMSE, and CMSW band rooms by Sept. 11. Please don't register for class until audition results have been posted.
