SMYRNA, Tenn. ā Carpe Artista is now accepting registrations for its third annual rock ānā roll camp for adults, Jukebox Hero.
Jukebox Hero rock camp provides the opportunity for adults to rekindle an old love for playing and even spark a new or hidden passion for standing on the stage under the lights surrounded by the applause of an audience.
Registrants of any and all skill levels are placed into bands of similar ability and assigned a seasoned band manager who will guide them through the band formation process as they prepare to perform for the culminating Battle of the Bands showcase.
Sessions start Tuesday, Jan. 21, from 7 p.m. till 9 p.m. and will meet for six consecutive Tuesday evenings until Feb. 25. The classes will be held at LifePoint Church, located at 506 Legacy Drive in Smyrna.
Besides landing bragging rights and the headlining spot during the final showcase, the winning band will be awarded a five-hour professional recording session to etch their musical memories into a well-produced CD, as well as win an opportunity to play a one or two song set between nationally headlined bands at a major concert event.
The Battle of the Bands public showcase will take place on Sunday, March 2.
During the six-week camp, session bands will be coached by actual working professionals on how to play and sing. Bands will also be guided through the process of naming their band, choosing songs, learning how to promote their band, understanding how to get a local gig, as well as songwriting and other industry-related topics.
For those who are new to playing an instrument, Carpe Artista is offering a registration add-on this year for two basic music lessons on any instrument before the camp sessions begin.
