A small but enthusiastic crowd came to cheer for Mohawk's Rock Band students and then stayed to dance in front of the stage to the tunes of the "ten-legged rock and roll machine" named Trailer Park.
Many, many thanks to Trailer Park band members James Robinson, Rick Page, Greg Lauzon, Joe "Jopey" Fitzpatrick, and Tom Mahnken (Mohawk alum) for coming to Mohawk and showing how it's done!
See Mr. Halligan's recap of the event at the bottom of this post.

Rock Band students had a great night last Friday! Student rockers performed an hour of great music in the Mohawk Auditorium, including classics like “Brown Eyed Girl” and “Blackbird,” along with more current hits like “All About That Bass.” This was the debut performance for many Mohawk students, and everyone did a great job! Student emcees Nick Brown and Leif Miraglia introduced each act and entertained the crowd with their comedic antics. Stage Tech students were also involved in the event this year as stage managers and lighting technicians, which gave the event a more organized and professional vibe.
In the second half of the concert “the ten-legged rock and roll machine,” otherwise known as Trailer Park, brought the house down! Students danced their hearts out in front of the stage and got to see first-hand how a successful band puts on a great show. Proceeds from this event benefited the Mohawk Music Association!

Several members of Trailer Park will be coming to the music room on Monday 11/10/14 for a follow-up visit with our Rock Band class.
