About Rok Skool
Rok Skool is a program for young musicians that uses the band model to instill integrity, cooperation, collaboration and compromise while imparting the social and performance skills necessary to produce professional level performances.
Students perform at least twice per year; a Winter showcase and again at SunFest, an annual, free music festival put on by Articipate for young people on the last day of school.
Rok Skool was started in 2010 when the parents of one of Bones’ students asked if he would like to coach her and 3 other girls who wanted to start a band.
The result was Red Bandana who garnered a large following, released a CD of original songs, produced 5 videos, and played over 100 prestigious festivals and venues all over Colorado during their 4 year run.
At the beginning of Bones’ tenure with Red Bandana, he was approached by another group of parents who wanted their kids to be involved in a similar experience and Rok Skool was born.
Running classes out of his recording studio in downtown Salida, Rok Skool has grown from 4 musicians to 4 separate rock groups (JV, Varsity, Ladies and Collegiate) and an Acoustic Folk School that boasts over 100 young musicians having come through its collective ranks.
Student tickets are $5.00 and adult tickets are $10.00. Pre-order yours online here.
