Event Date/Doors Open:

Event Time: 

Registration is now open for the Music’s Edge 2019 Summer Rock Camps at the WOW Hall.  Director Tim McLaughlin will host two different weeklong camps: July 29-August 2 and August 12-16. The program is designed for ages 10-18.


            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.  The two “gigs” will be Friday, August 2, and Friday, August 16.  Each camp will also have a second show; the first will be at the Saturday Market on August 3. The show for the second camp will be at BlairAlly on Saturday, August 17.  Music’s Edge is interested in all skill levels and all instruments. Tim McLaughlin, bandleader of the acclaimed group Eleven Eyes, heads up a pro staff that includes John Shipe, John Raden, Kurt Catlin, Dan Mahoney plus special guests.  Music’s Edge features different workshops each day with music industry professionals and performers.  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.”  Adds Mahoney, “Music's Edge Rock Camp is a very exciting opportunity to pass on not just musical knowledge, but important lessons on how beneficial musical relationships with others are."

Tuition is $309 per session, with a $100 registration fee, and includes a t-shirt and two tickets to the Friday night performance.
