ROCKIT! Have You Heard of it? Music On The Edge!

Rockit For Kids gives young musicians an instant opportunity to play Rock & Roll with their peers, bringing them together to perform live as an accomplished band. The program helps young musicians fulfill their dreams of playing with a live band on stage in a professional environment.

Each week for 6 weeks, students attend a 55-minute band class with specialized instructors. The end result is a well-orchestrated ensemble of young rockers who perform live concerts in front of a packed audience. This year, the group’s founder, Bruce Gallipani, is celebrating five years of live performance.
I know this because my cousin Jack has performed with Rockit
and their performances are unbelievable!
It's an outlet for talented kids who have an interest in rock, metal, music -  to learn, practice and perform in an environment that encourages them in so many ways. They have imput, laugh, play music, share experiences and then are able to show this wide range to an an enthusiastic audience in a theatre.

The audience is filled with children and adults, who have come to see the awe-inspiring performance given by these young stars. It’s here that passion and style is ignited and the dreams of these children become reality. Registration is open to guitarists, drummers, vocalists, bassists, keyboardists, and brass and string players. Strong voices reach out, guitar and keyboard solos. Awesome drumming.  All at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, NJ. I was thrilled to be there and hope there willl be more programs like this around the country. Not every kid is into sports, some are into both!
