A haven of head-banging harmony, The League Of Rock is comprised of a working rehearsal space and musicians’ community where amateur soundsmiths can band together to jam with professional gear and receive professional coaching and production. The four-hour sampler program grants participants a concentrated dose of rockstardom, including rehearsing with a band of other participants, a coaching session with professional musicians, playing live on stage, recording the performance for a take-home CD, and sharing real butterfly kisses with roadies. Tune architects itching for an ear-splitting jamboree can attend a League of Rock Jam Session where guests strum out celebratory riffs and groove along with original music. League of Rock staff ensures that all participants feel comfortable unleashing inner Framptons.
Burgeoning musicians can undergo intensive schooling in the art of rocking out with the Join a Band (JAB) program that lasts 10 weeks, the same time it takes to capture and distill the essence of David Bowie. The session kicks off with a draft event to form groups, meet coaches, choose which three songs to perfect, and decide upon a band name. Bandmates bond and identify individual strengths during weeks one through four by participating in tireless rehearsals and rigorous crowd-surfing practice. Mid-program workshops grant jamming fellowships a break from rehearsal with a pair of live gigs. Week nine ushers bands into Audio Valley for a four-hour professional-level recording session wherein their best song is committed to digital form. Before breaking up amicably, bands hold a closing performance for their adoring public at a killer live venue, effectively activating the latent lighter-waving impulses of family and friends. Performers snag a DVD of the performance and numerous contacts in the local music scene.
League of Rock
In 2006, it dawned on Terry Moshenberg and Topher Stott that there was a lack of creative outlets for musical adults. Those hoping to hone their skills or simply jam out often had a hard time finding likeminded people. A year later, Terry and Topher sought out to solve this problem by starting League of Rock, which has since revealed what they refer to as the "hidden musical population." During workshops and team-building exercises held at corporations and various venues, professional musicians invite grownups to unleash their inner rock star by helping them master their chosen instrument, assigning them band mates, and getting them up on stage with a professional rock band. In corporate music leagues, clients use LOR as a resource to put on shows for recruiting purposes and raising money for charity.
