This Spring Break we are partnering The Cabin to present a really cool songwriting camp. There will be teachers from The Cabin to help with the words and teachers from rock school to help with the music. This camp is for kids ages 10 and up. The camp will run 9 am-12 pm, March 24-28 at Boise Rock School (1404 West Idaho, downtown Boise). More info here!
At Boise Rock School we love gigging! Though we have tried to sneak students in to the Neurolux before (joking!!!!), it makes it way easier on us when the gig takes place at an all-ages venue. Well, as luck would have it, Boise’s premiere all-ages venue The Crux is only four blocks away from Boise Rock School! So this Spring, rad students from Boise Rock School will fill the downtown venue The Crux with awesome tunes with our version of a concert series.
Here are the dates: 1/30, 2/20, 3/27, 4/24 and 5/15.
This event will be so rad! There’s yoga, music, dance and all sorts of coolness! Plus the event benefits our scholarship fund!!! The fun starts at 6 pm at the Linen Building in downtown Boise. We are so stoked to be a part of it. Tickets are selling fast and can be had here.
