Blues Band - Live!

$232 ($222 members) · 80 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks

Work out the blues with your own Old Town School band. The first meeting will include a jam session, ensemble selection and band placement. Eight weeks of practice will land your band a gig! Final performances will be at Rosa’s Blues Lounge 3420 W. Armitage (usually the last Sunday of the session). Class time depends on student's ensemble designation. Even if you sign up for the Saturday section you will need to go to the Wednesday audition on the first night of class.

Students must attend the first class or receive teacher permission. Instruments include electric guitar, bass, drums, vocals, horns, woodwinds, and keyboards. Class time depends on student's ensemble designation. It could be 6:30 PM or 8:00 PM or Saturdays at 1:00 PM.


For intermediate and advanced players only.
