The Paul Green School Of Rock Music

Last night Jim Bonfanti and I attended the 1st of two concerts dubbed "The Battle of Ohio".

For those not familiar with Cleveland's "The Paul Green School Of Rock Music" (think the Jack Black movie, which was very loosely based on the original Philadelphia location, but much more organized and disciplined and with just as much passion and focus on quality music teaching), it's been around for a couple of years, has an east side and a west side facility, and provides performanced-based interactive instruction in Guitar, Vocals, Bass, Drums, and Keyboards to kids of all ages.

Last night's concert - with a second show tonight - featured the results of an extensive "course' on the history of popular music in Ohio. The kids played two 12-song sets with multiple selections from Joe Walsh, The James Gang, The Pretenders and our own favorite band RASPBERRIES (the kids performed "Tonight" and "I Wanna Be With You"). The kids also did a very entertaining "punk" version of The Choir's "It's Cold Outside".

The show was very enjoyable, and it was very refreshing to see these kids - who obviously are very serious about learning their craft - showing their skills and passion for music. They all definitely get an "A" for effort, and several of these kids showed off some very impressive rock and roll chops!

If you're looking for something to do early tonight and want to support our future musical giants you can catch the 2nd of these two concerts, beginning at 6:15pm and going until about 8:30, at The Brothers Lounge, 11609 Detroit Avenue in Lakewood. A good time will be had by all!
