Default The Village Rockers

The Village Rockers club is intended to be a collection of musicians, singers and spectators interested in rock and roll music of the 1950's, 60's and 70's.

Currently in the formative stage, it will be open to all Villagers who appreciate rock and roll music of this era.

During our weekly meeting, we will feature and perform songs from the groups and bands that we listened to and loved. There will be a period of moderated discussion and we may even enjoy videos suggested or provided by club members.

Prior to the meetings, club members will be asked to identify, by email submissions, their favorite songs via Youtube videos, Wikipedia links, sheet music or other Internet music sites.

Then, we intend to email a weekly "assignment" sheet to each member, listing the songs that will be played by those in attendance. The assignment will show the Youtube links thru which we can become intimately familiar with each piece, prior to the meeting taking place.

At the meeting, after listening to an assigned song, we will, as a group, perform the piece, sometimes playing the song multiple times -- just to enjoy, and get it right.

Musicians of all abilities will be encouraged to bring their instruments and sit in with us. We will welcome all string instruments - predominately guitarists and bass players, and percussionists.

Visit our website and be sure to contact us at http://thevillagerockers.com/contact-us/ for email updates on our progress.

In which general part of the Villages will the bulk of these experiences be held? Also awesome idea.

"Also awesome idea."

Thanks, you made my day.

As for location, it's up to Villages Rec; however, the more contacts we gather, the better the location and room size.

From the response thus far, I predict that we will ultimately need a room for 180 or so attendees.
