The students from the School of Rock are singing for their supper and raising money to attend this special cruise. "American Idol" winner and Kansas City native David Cook recently lent his support by autographing a Les Paul guitar donated by Gibson for a special raffle - tickets are only $5 each, and can be purchased at any Kansas City School of Rock show or by calling (816) 842-ROCK.
Not to be outdone, Queensr˙che recently dropped by the school for a quick photo-op and mini-concert to help raise awareness for the fundraiser, performing three songs before being joined by the school's "house band" for an additional three tracks.
Paul Green founded the first School of Rock in Philadelphia in 1998. Since that time, satellite campuses have opened across America, helping students develop stage presence and musical skill. Students at the School of Rock take part in both private lessons and larger jams to prepare for a capstone performance. Students have performed at major concerts and festivals around the world and are proud to add Shiprocked to the list.
