On Friday, August 16, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and KRVM proudly welcome the Music’s Edge Summer Rock Camp Showcase to the WOW Hall.

 

            There’s gonna be a Rock Show Friday evening at the WOW Hall!  We can’t tell you who they are yet, but the students at the Music’s Edge Summer Rock Camp have been gearing up all week for the big show.  Come Friday night they will be ready to rock!  Instructors Tim McLaughlin, Kurt Catlin, John Raden, John Shipe and Dan Mahoney will have schooled the youths on the fine points of rock band performance so that the kids are ready to reward the public with a live rock and roll show.  Several bands will perform, from the youngest to the oldest.  The bands will also be performing at the Saturday Market stage on Saturday, August 3.

            Music’s Edge began as a unique music program that was created by Tim McLaughlin in 2004.  This will be the WOW Hall’s 12th year hosting the very successful rock camp.  Each session goes full-steam all week and ends with a full-blown, rockin’ show, with all the lights and sound that would make any rock star proud.  Tim’s main motivation with Music’s Edge is to offer a music program like no other and give up-and-coming musicians opportunities he only dreamed of when he was that age.  There are many music camps that teach musicians how to play better music, but Tim wanted to go beyond that.  Creating a full set of non-stop music, and performing with confidence and charisma on a big stage with huge sound and lights was one opportunity Tim wanted to offer. To be able to play a “festival-style” set on an outdoor stage is also an important experience he wanted his students to have.  Says Tim, “It has been amazing to see some of the students go on to great college music programs, have successful bands, and continue having music in their lives.”

 

            Admission is $5 at the door.  Doors open at 6:30 pm and showtime is 7:00.   Partial seating will be available, first come first served.  The WOW Hall is located at 291 W. 8th Ave. (the corner of 8th and Lincoln in Eugene) and is open for all ages (6-11 half price at the door when accompanied by parent or adult guardian; five and under no charge). It’s not too late to register for the second camp, August 12-16.  For more information please call 541-687-2746.
