The Rock School Blues Band



At this point, I realize I can enjoy the music and stop looking for these guys to screw up just because they're students. They're rockin'. The next song is a rendition of "Got My Mojo Working." Mojo essentially means "magic," and it's good to see the blues school mojo working on the waitress. She breaks into a spontaneous dance.

After the show, Dave tells me that the student performers tonight have various day jobs: computer and automotive engineers, boat maker, retired autoworker. They have a lot of experience on stage and playing as an ensemble. The students themselves actually suggested they play gigs. That makes sense: work your whole life at a job that pays the bills; finally say, "Screw it, I'm going to play the blues"; take lessons until you know what you're doing; and then find a great local bar to play in.

The Rock School Blues Band is at the Tap Room Annex for an early evening show on Saturday, July 28.
