ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

Funk & Reggae: This season features a little funkier of an affair. Featuring artists ranging from Parliament Funkadelic to dub legend Lee "Scratch" Perry, this shows cast of students dug head first into a world far from three chord straight ahead rock into the realm of funky basslines and almost non-sensical guitar wizardry. Come and get up on the downstoke as our students boogie their way through a set of classic funk & reggae jams!

About the School:

We proceed from the belief that the best way to learn to do almost anything is by doing it. And, we feel that this is particularly true about learning to play music.Our goals at the Paul Green School of Rock Music are: to help our students realize their potential as artists, to put them on stage in front of as many people as possible and to help foster a new generation of incredible musicians. Founded in 1998 by Paul Green, the Rochester and St. Clair Shores school are part of network of over 40 schools of rock across the country.

Each year across the country students play over 500 concerts to more than 200,000 people, at such legendary venues as CBGB's, The Trocadero, Cafe DuNord, The Knitting Factory, Cervantes Ballroom and BB Kings in Times Square. We are always looking for grander stages to put our students on, and to date our students have played Lollapalooza and other festivals from California to Germany, opened for national acts coast to coast and performed live on television and radio countless times.

Student ages range from 8 to 18 years old and their collective experience ranges from beginner to advanced. Every four months our student body puts on performances based on shows hand selected by our staff to showcase different styles and further challenge students abilities and technique. Both Rochester and St. Clair Shores branches have had the pleasure of performing at the crofoot and the very first set of shows ever performed (The Beatles and a complete performance of Pink Floyd's The Wall) were in the Pike Room.
