Our brand new rock music school for kids is growing fast, and our kids need gear for their upcoming gigs in the SF Bay Area and beyond.

There's nothing better than going to a dive bar and watching kids rock out HARD. All of the kids learning how to play rock music at San Francisco Rock Project are amazing, but our House Band represents the best of the best, and their reputation is growing. They are getting invited to lots of gigs in the Bay Area, but our ability to take these gigs on is frustratingly limited by the simple fact that if we take gear, our regular school lessons and rehearsals have to shut down.

We are looking to our extended community to pitch in to get our kids out into the world as much as they can get booked. Each dollar you donate will go towards the amps, PA's, drum kits, and billions of tiny cables needed to do what they do so well. Any dollars received in excess of our goal (if we are so lucky!) will go towards additional school equipment purchases for the school.

The kids in our House Band range from 10-17 years old. They perform Mars Volta, Pixies, Primus, Led Zeppelin, Beastie Boys, Metallica, Allman Brothers, Frank Zappa... you name it, and they can shred the stuffing out of it.

Donate now, then come see the kids play! You'll be hooked.
