Big surprise for fans as well as students from both the Franklin and Nashville School Of Rock locations.
MOTLEY CRUE icon Vince Neil invited them to partake in a performance at this year’s inaugural Big Machine Music City Grand Prix in August. The surprise visit to the Franklin, Tennessee location coincided with the announcement that School Of Rock, a leader in performance-based music education, will be a sponsor of the event.
Here’s the statement:
“At the School Of Rock, we believe the stage is the greatest teacher, and we love providing our students the opportunity to play high profile gigs like the Grand Prix,” says Kelly McCreight, co-owner of School Of Rock Franklin/Nashville.
“Having Vince Neil come and speak with the kids, listen to them play, and actually get on stage with them… priceless! At the School Of Rock, our goal is to teach music through performance, but also build a community of young musicians that understand and appreciate artist and bands from every generation and genre…from THE BEATLES, [LED] ZEPPELIN and THE ROLLING STONES to Motown and funk to VAN HALEN and MÖTLEY CRÜE. It means so much to us when artists like Vince take the time to spend with our students and offer insight and praise.”
