FOR AGES 10-18

At the Historic WOW Hall in Eugene, OR

This will be the WOW Hall’s 15th year hosting the very successful Music's Edge Rock Camp.  Each camp goes full-steam all week and ends with full-blown, rockin' show, with all the lights and sound that would make any rock star proud.   

Music's Edge at the WOW Hall is interested in all skill levels and all instruments.  Tim McLaughlin heads up a very pro staff that includes John Shipe, John Raden, Cameron Wick, Dan Mahoney, Kurt Catlin, and daily special guest artists.  Music’s Edge will feature different workshops each day with music industry professionals and performers.  

Notes the Register Guard: "In an age when reality TV show contests spotlight the glamour of the music business, the camp participants seem focused on the right things.”  

"Tim McLaughlin is the best band leader I've ever met.  He knows how to control a group this size and rein it in. "  Music's Edge Rocker

"It's meant to be life changing to some degree,” reports the Eugene Register Guard.  ”It can take a lifetime to learn some of these skills."  


The Facts:

The camp lasts from Monday through Friday and goes from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm.  The students will be divided into four different bands based on age, ability, and interest.  The week will be spent rehearsing a set of rock, metal, funk, jazz, blues, hip-hop and pop tunes to be performed on the WOW Hall stage at the end of each camp, as well as a second performance following day at a different outdoor venue.  Each group plays music that best suits their ability and interest as well as what fits their style.
