School of Rock, a unique nationwide music school focusing on private lessons, group rehearsals and seasonal live rock performances, opened its first Las Vegas location at 9340 W. Flamingo Road, Suite 117 on Oct. 1, 2011. School of Rock offers students an authentic band experience by giving students the opportunity to jam with other kids and perform at popular venues in front of live audiences. The school teaches music that students love to play and audiences of all ages love to hear, including classic rock, funk, reggae, heavy metal, alternative, indie and progressive rock. By playing music that they love in a group environment, students become inspired and quickly develop their confidence and musical skills.

School of Rock is primarily focused on students ages 7 to 18. Adult programs are also available. School of Rock’s proprietary performance-based curriculum teaches students to play rock music in a unique and interactive way. There are weekly individual lessons on guitar, bass, drums, keyboard & vocals and weekly group sessions with seasonal performances. Because of the age range School of Rock accommodates, younger students receive quality guidance while elder students are provided with the tools to lead and mentor.

Everclear at The Cannery Saturday, March 31

 

Everclear at The Cannery Saturday, March 31

Tickets available at cannerycasino.com

 

Art Alexakis, founder and frontman of the group Everclear, never shied away from reflecting on his troubled experiences early in life.  Collaborating with original band members, Alexakis used those experiences and translated them into song and eventually multi-platinum album sales, a Grammy® nomination and a number of recording and music awards.

Everclear will perform at The Club inside the Cannery Casino, March 31, 2012 at 8 p.m.

Many music critics believe it’s not just the fact that Alexakis relies on his life experiences for inspiration that is unusual.  As the Los Angeles Times’ Richard Cromelin wrote about Everclear’s music  “ …(Alexakis) spits it out with a Lennon-like candor and an unruly, unstoppable energy.” 

Everclear’s fans are just as supportive.  Many of the group’s songs made it into the Top 5 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart including “Santa Monica” (which was also #1 on Billboards Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart), “Everything to Everyone,” “I Will Buy You a New Life,” “Father of Mine” and “Wonderful.” 

Everclear received a Grammy nomination for the Best Rock Instrumental for “El Distorto de Melodica” in 1997 and in 1998, was named Billboard’s “Modern Rock Artist of the Year.”

Throughout his life, music has been a constant source of peace for Alexakis.  After longtime band members left the group, Everclear’s Welcome To The Drama Club release in 2006 showed that new members and new inspiration would bring a cohesive mix together again.

Tickets are $29.95, plus tax and fees.  Tickets are available online at cannerycasino.com, or by calling (702) 507-5757.  Tickets can also be purchased in person at the Cannery box office at the front desk.

Having spanned the globe playing thousands of sold-out shows on five continents, multi-platinum rock band, Incubus, recently announced that they are hitting the road for a 30-city North America tour. The band will make a stop at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Saturday, Oct. 8 with special guest Young the Giant. The tour is in support of their sixth studio album If Not Now, When? out July 12. The highly anticipated new album features lead single “Adolescents” which is topping the charts at Alternative radio as well as newly released single “Promises, Promises.” The band unveiled the sheet music for “Promises, Promises” to their fans prior to the audio debut resulting in over million views of fan cover songs.

The album cover for If Not Now, When?, which was revealed last week through a fan-driven puzzle-piece, scavenger hunt, is famed photo of high wire artist Philippe Petit by Thierry Orbach©1973.

Having sold over 13 million albums worldwide, Incubus’ extraordinary career has spanned over a decade, and includes six studio albums, which have spawned a total of thirteen Top 10 Rock hits with four singles debuting at #1 upon their release. The multi-platinum quintet’s last studio album Light Grenades debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 (highest charting album debut of band’s career) and has sold over 800k copies to-date in the US.

Hailing from Calabasas, California, Brandon Boyd, Mike Einziger and Jose Pasillas formed Incubus in 1991 while they were in high school with Chris Kilmore joining in 1998 and Ben Kenney joining in 2003. The band’s break came in 1999 with the singles, “Pardon Me,” “Stellar” and “Drive,” from their second full-length, double-platinum selling disc Make Yourself. The group’s third album, Morning View, released in 2001, debuted at #2 on the album chart and included the radio hits “Wish You Were Here,” “Nice to Know You” and “Warning.” In 2004 Incubus released A Crow Left of the Murder which achieved platinum status on the strength of the #1 hit “Megalomanic.”
