When they enrolled in Band Workshops, many Blue Bear School of Music students wondered what it's like to actually play in a band. They'll find out first-hand when they take the stage at Cafe Du Nord at the Blue Bear Showcases.
Blue Bear Band Workshops are student bands organized by the school that rehearse with a professional musician who coaches the band in group playing and arrangement. For 10 weeks the aspiring musicians rehearse a set which they then perform live in a San Francisco club at the end of the class session. The shows are always lively, and proceeds help support Blue Bear's nonprofit mission to make music education fun and affordable for anyone who is motivated to play or sing or craft a song.
Blue Bear is very pleased to host its Band Showcases at Cafe Du Nord. Many nationally renowned artists play at this landmark San Francisco venue, so these showcases are an especially wonderful performance opportunity for the school's students - some of whom will be playing onstage for the first time.
During the showcases run, student bands ranging from rock to blues to soul and R&B and more perform on the Main Stage, and the Lounge Stage features performances by local artists, Blue Bear alumni, teacher bands and the best youth bands around.
All ages are welcome and Cafe Du Nord offers a full menu, so bring your family and friends for four fun-filled evenings of music!
