EVENT DATE: Jun 30, 2012
My name is Alec Tonjes. I am 17 years old and I am a drummer who is involved in the school of rock program. The School of Rock program is an after school program for kids to learn how to play music. the program also gets kids together every week for a rehearsal and then every three months they have a show at a rock venue.
Every summer the school of rock has an All Stars program. the best kids in School of Rocks all across the midwest get chosen to go on tour for a week. they get to play at festivals and venues all across the midwest.
This year the Allstars get to play festivals such as Summerfest, Ribfest, and Warped Tour. they get to play on the same stage as names like The Steve Miller Band, Iron Maiden/Alice Cooper, ZZ Top, Aerosmith, and many more.
I was chosen to be apart of this program. I need to raise a little more than $1000 to pay for travel, food and board. I am trying to pay for what I can but the tour isn't far away. This is a great oppurtunity and any help would be appreciated.
