When did you start playing music and why?
My dad signed me up for rock camp at RiverCity and at first, I wasn’t super pumped to attend, but then I walked in and met the super cool staff!
What is your favorite song you've ever played at RiverCity?
Two of my favorite songs that I’ve gotten to drum on are ‘England Belongs to Me’ by Cock Sparrer and ‘TNT’ by AC/DC.
What do you like about RiverCity?
I like the staff. They’re super funny!
What are your favorite bands/artists right now?
I don’t really have a favorite band, I just listen to a lot of different music.
What things do you like to do when you’re not at RiverCity?
I like to draw, play video games, hanging out with my friends, and playing with my cats and dogs!
Last Friday night our June Summer Camp rocked the Half Penny with an amazing set of covers by the Rolling Stones, Weezer, The Beatles, and Stealers Wheel and then played three catchy original songs that they wrote and recorded during the week of camp. Some of our students had never played an instrument before and others were more advanced but they came together and performed on stage like pros. If you would like to join us for the July or August Summer Rock Camps sign up soon as we are almost full. You can learn more and sign up here!

During Summer Rock Star Camp students developed a music video based on one of their favorite rock songs. They worked together to create the concept, established a story board, acted in and lip-synched (just like some current big stars) to the song. If you watch closely, you can see that they could not help playing their instruments correctly and singing on time.
It has been a few days since we posted but we have been extremely busy. This week we moved into our new studio, started our first Summer Rock Star Camp on Monday, and held our first rehearsal for the RiverCity Rockers at the new location. Every day has been filled with tons of hard work, but we’ve had some great help from many people and best of all the week has been filled with lots of smiles and of course great music!
Here is a video about Summer Rock Star camp put together by one of our great volunteers.
