Off to a great start – several bands already up and running with a few song ideas, band names, etc… If this group of rockers is as good as last weeks, and we think they are, we are in for a great concert again on Friday evening!! Video of last week’s camp and concert, which was AMAZING, up in a few days on Youtube and RaleighRockSchool.com.

“One of my highlights from the Game Developers’ Conference for me was the “Oh No Banjo” exhibit, showing off student work from the Rochester Institute of Technology’s “Alternative Controllers Seminar.” The students gutted a guitar game-controller and built a very credible banjo using its buttons and electronics, then wrote custom software and musical arrangements for it (apparently the Scruggs people rightsholders wouldn’t let them use “Duelling Banjos,” even for a noncommercial, student project). I played it for a while and found it very fun — I totally rocked the banjo for MC Chris’s “Fett’s Vette.”

In 2009 our Raleigh, NC location will move into a bigger and better space at Briar Creek (70 & TW Alexander) that will offer some very cool features and amenities for our students. We are pushing for a late March/early April opening, but we’ll have more details, a sneak peak at our floor plan and teaching room layouts and grand opening info. as we move along in our build out. The transition will be seamless and our teachers are very excited about the new space!
