Summer Middle School Garage Band
Open to students entering grades 7-9
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. Performance at Chaska River City Days Saturday, July 28, 4-6 p.m.
