School of Rock Presents Nashville Past to Present & The Best of Queen
How did a medium-sized Southern river town become arguably the most important music center in America? A single studio in a tiny duplex house led to what is now known as Music Row, a ten-block area populated by hundreds of talented people whose job is to simply make music. Franklin School of Rock’s NASHVILLE PAST to PRESENT (A Tribute to Music City) will help tell the evolution of this fabled center of music. It's where Elvis ushered in the commercial rock 'n' roll explosion by recording "Heartbreak Hotel," Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves, and Willie Nelson taught mainstream America to love soulful ballads, and Bob Dylan recorded three of his most important albums.
After hearing what Nashville has to offer, the Franklin School of Rock will keep the excitement going with THE BEST OF QUEEN! Queen is a British rock band formed in London in 1971, originally consisting of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor. Their earliest works were influenced by progressive rock, but the band gradually incorporated more diverse and innovative styles into their music. Drawing artistic influence from many other British rock acts from the same time, such as the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Who, Black Sabbath, Slade, Deep Purple and David Bowie. They have been cited as a major influence on neo-classical metal and helped spur the heavy metal genre’s evolution by discarding much of its blues influence.
Make no mistake, they may be kids, but they are true musicians! Get ready to ROCK!
