The students from the School of Rock showcased their talents on the Train Car stage in downtown Big Spring over the weekend. The two bands that performed were The Slick Ore60s and The Coffee Makers. Each band performed 4 songs to a packed audience of family, friends, and rock enthusiasts.
Drummer for The Coffee Makers, 12-year-old Donavan, told KBest News that he had a lot of fun in the program. He said that he didn't think the program would be as energetic as it was, but he met students from other grades and said that he had a lot of fun.
When asked how it felt to perform in front of the massive crowd at the Train Car, 12-year-old Kendall, also with The Coffee Makers, said that it was great to show off all of the hard work that she and the other students had been putting in all summer.
Students of various ages attended the summer music program created by Big Spring ISD teachers Eddie Vasquez and Billy Daves. The students worked hard to not only improve their musical talents but also learned the history of rock music. So, what happens now that the first class from the School of Rock is completed for the summer? Daves told KBest News that there was not a definite plan at this point, and it would all come down to continued community support.
