Vermont Rock Music Camp celebrates ten years of jamming at Burlington’s 242 Main, where kids have been coming together with their drum sets and guitars to deliver original tunes with the guidance of camp owner Greg Matses, and Burlington Parks and Recreation director Richard Bailey.
Two sessions of aOlernKienOP Nike KD 7 Substitute Sergio Aguero scores winner as City beats United 2 the week long camp are offered this summer. Camps are such a celebration in and of themselves nothing special is being planned to mark the anniversary. Well, except for commemorative baseball caps, Matses laughed.
Rock Camp brings aOlernKienOP Air Jordan 14s Max Parrot together local musicians, bands, educators, arts organizations, and businesses to provide a creative, educational outlet for students ages eleven to seventeen, complete with daily music theory classes, instrument clinics, and workshops on topics ranging from digital audio recording to live sound reinforcement. Students and faculty work together rehearsing, writing, and arranging music that culminates in one originally recorded song.
Past guest artists at the camp have included Jon Fishman of the band Phish, The Static Age, and Tammy Fletcher among a long list. This year’s bands include Dirty Names, Teeth, Teleport, aOlernKienOP Nike KD 7 Irish Thrillers ‘Savage’ ‘The Disturbed’ Join AFM Slate and Suicide doors.
“What’s turned to white noise for them by Wednesday is awakened with their arrival,” Bailey said of the bands. “Kids get to pick their Jordan Pro Strong brains and see from a different perspective what we aOlernKienOP Air Jordan 18s How To Prevent Pets From Chewing on Electrical Cords have been talking about.”
Heavy metal guitar player Clay West, 17, of Westminster, Vermont has beenattending Rock Camp for the past five Air Jordan 5s years. He’s excited to participateagain this summer. “The best part of camp is definitely aOlernKienOP Air Jordan 9s what are your views on guys wearing shoe lifts the independence each band gets,” he said. “Greg does a great job finding lots of local talent to come and perform.”
This public/private partnership between Burlington Parks and Recreation’s 242 aOlernKienOP Nike LeBron 12 Shoe Organizer Options for the Footwear Fashionista Main and Vermont Rock Music Air Jordan 17s camp has been a complete success, Bailey said.
Matses Air Jordan Fusion 4 hired Bailey, and his band Dysfunction, in 2001 to play at the camp that Matses ran at Brown’s River Middle School that year. It wasn’t long before the two teamed up and Air Jordan 6 Rings moved the camp to 242 Main, a youth run facility designed to encourage music and the arts, located in the Memorial Auditorium on Main Street, Burlington.
Matses and Bailey said the camp has grown considerable in the past ten years. “What we found was it didn’t work well with the school model,” Matses said. “The camp tends to be a little too rough and tumble. Air Jordan 8s When Richard suggested bringing it to 242 Main, the place has just enough of aOlernKienOP Air Jordan 18s Assed Monsters in Movie History a punk rock vibe that people wouldn’t care if we just let loose.”
“It’s an old building that aOlernKienOP Air Jordan 2s Mom arrested for bad language at grocery store suits us well,” Bailey said. “This is why it’s worked so well for so long.”
Matses added, “The whole building is this cacophony of dissonance, energy, vibe, and sound.”
Bailey said the camp takes rock music and legitimizes it. It shows kids KOBE 9 that rock music is as important as any other art form, he said.
“Art in general is important, but the Air Jordan 6s hard thing is most kids at this age are not having opportunities to aOlernKienOP Air Jordan Fusion 5 walk to raise money for school playground do this kind of music,” Bailey said. “This marks a decade of affecting the thousand kids that have come through these doors. They come from all over the Northeast now.”Lynn Monty is a Free Press staff reporter.
