Come Join The Band, Created by Stephen Jacobs of The Dirty Sock Funtime Band, is an amazing afterschool program where kids ages 5-18 learn instruments in the most fun way possible – by being in a band, will be showcasing 14 Bands made of of kids ages 7-19!
Kids ages 7-19 will be playing songs across the entire canon of Beatle’s tunes from some of The Beatles’ earliest hits to a full rendition of Side B of Abbey Road.
Some bands will re-imagine Beatle’s songs in their own style: a punk cover of Love Me Do – a funk version of Blackbird, while others will stay closer to the original recordings.
There will be an info table with the members and staff from Come Join the Band to give out information about upcoming shows and to sign people up for classes.
