The second week of Rock-n-Romp Camp was a little crazier than the first. We had a slightly younger crew and our director had to deal with some health issues. That meant Warren was in charge! He definitely took it all in stride and did a great job filling Kate's shoes. Our amazing staff and crew of volunteers all pitched in and we had another successful week.
To mix things up, we held the final showcase at the Hi-Tone on Sunday afternoon. That's right, there's 40+ kids out there now who can say they played the Hi-Tone when they were 5, 6, 7...12, whatever. Awesome, right?
Warren and Terrance had a band comprised of the very youngest campers called Metal Hed. They only had about two and a half days of practice, but they managed to pull off a great performance. Terrence started off the song with a hilarious speech about the "lightest heavy metal band" delivered in a British accent.
And Warren thought it would be fun to give Indigo a fake spider and some fake blood.
It was awesome. Although our photographer, Chip, looked at me and said, "Uh was this metal week at camp?"
Satchel's band, The Elvis Pretzels, played an original song that was four pages long. I was glad to see him leave the keyboards behind for a new instrument. And yes, I'm glad he insisted on keeping his long hair.
Jiro branched out last week and joined a band that did not include his best buddies. And, it even included a girl! They were called Sly Fox and I loved his make up. He played bass, although you can't see it behind the keyboard in this picture.
I'd like to point out that both Satchel and Jiro's bands required no back up from adults. They played everything themselves!
The show was fantastic and I think I speak for everyone when I say that I am really excited about next year!
