We will be playing at the District Coffee shop on March 2 and 3; 4-9 pm for the next Session Gig. It will be awesome. Sign-up now to if you are wanting to get placed in a band class and play at the next Session Gig!
Beginning this fall we will be doing classes in Twin Falls. We will be starting with our time-proven “Band Classes”. These classes are weekly and consist of 1.5 hours of band instruction with a rad band teacher. We will provide the instruments (though we recommend bringing your guitar, bass or drumsticks if you have them!). The cost of these classes is slightly different than Boise and is $110/month. Please note we don’t turn anyone away for inability to pay, so please reach out if you have financial difficulties. The first of these classes will be on Thursdays at 4 pm and 6 pm. As we get our sea-legs in Twin we will begin offering other classes as well. If you are interested, please let us know by using the sign-up form here. Please indicate “Twin Falls Rock School” as your interest.

Boise Rock School and BCT Theater Lab Present Răzbunare and “His Final Trick” – An Evening of Music and Magic
During the Fall of 2015, students from Boise Rock School and BCT Theater Lab created the play Răzbunare and “His Final Trick.” This production features live, original music from Boise Rock School teens and an original play written by Theater Lab teens.
The play focuses on the touring magician Răzbunare and his backing band the Final Trick. Răzbunare’s magic has a devastating effect on the towns he visits and his tour leaves a trail of profound loss and heartbreak. The tour takes a turn when Răzbunare encounters a woman who forces his hand and destroys everything Răzbunare holds dear.
There will be four performances:
1. Wednesday, November 11 @ 7 pm at Flying M Coffee Garage
2. Thursday, November 12 @ 7 pm at Sage International School
3. Friday, November 13 @ 4:30 at Boys and Girls Club (non- public event)
4. Sunday, November 15 @ 7 pm at Boise Contemporary Theater
