All Tickets $20.00 in Advance, $25.00 at the Door
Not many rock n’ roll bands stay together for a year, let alone over 50 of them… This year the Rolling Stones celebrate 55 years of onstage swagger, number one hits, and powerful albums that have left an indelible mark on the fabric of rock and roll. Don’t miss what will undoubtedly be the crowning achievement of an amazing performance season when the students of the Uptown Music Collective rip into a concert featuring the greatest hits of one of the greatest rock n’ roll bands to ever walk the earth. Including songs like Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Start Me Up, Ruby Tuesday, Wild Horses, and Honky Tonk Women. Don’t miss it! You’ll kick yourself if you do!
Gimme Shelter: A Tribute to the Rolling Stones will feature Collective students who have been diligently preparing for this event for over two months. Along with the live music, there will be a professional grade light and sound show organized by the students themselves. As with all Uptown Music Collective performances, the students are not only the performers but also direct the show. There is also a group of younger students, called “Tech Monkeys” who will serve as stage technicians. The cast for the show is drawn from the Uptown Music Collective’s much heralded Special Performance Group 1.
ABOUT THE COLLECTIVE.
The Uptown Music Collective was founded in 2000 by Dave Brumbaugh, a Berklee College of Music Graduate who was born and raised in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Since the turn of the century, the school has evolved into a highly respected nonprofit music school with a reputation for “walking its talk”, and delivering superior music education programs that have a lasting impact on students, families, and the community.
Our story as an organization is about engaging students where they are, and then guiding them to where we would like them to go. It’s about our commitment to emphasizing modern music and new approaches to education, instead of holding fast to a that are beautiful, but out of touch with the modern world. Most importantly, it’s a story of building a community, instead of a customer base.
