KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- It's called the Kalamazoo Academy of Rock, and it teaches young people how to do just that -- to rock. Director Jeff Mitchell, a former high school band director, says that a kid can join and lean how to play in a rock band, kind of like in School of Rock.
They've got four performing rock bands at the academy. Students start out at a lower level, just to practice, and eventually make their way up to one of the four bands.
The four bands are having some performances this month. They'll be at the RibFest from eleven AM to two PM on Saturday, and they're playing at the Four Eleven Club next Friday at seven PM. You can find out more at www.KalamazooAcademyofRock.com .
