The West Coast will welcome its first campus of the national family of Let There Be Rock Schools on Saturday, May 18 in Fountain Valley.
The local owner and faculty open their doors to the public starting at 11 a.m. on Saturday at 8740 Warner Ave.
The community is invited to check out the school for free and enjoy live music, food and drawings at grand opening festivities lasting until 4 p.m.
Among the featured performances will be American Idol contestant Darian Baena and her band, NUAGE, as well as drummer Austin D’Amond, who has toured with Chimaira, Bleed the Sky and DevilDriver. D’Amond will also be a drum instructor at the school.
Regular business hours commence on Monday, May 20. The school will be open weekdays from 3 to 9 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and closed on Sundays.
“Running my own school and recording studio has been a lifelong dream of mine and I was ecstatic to gain approval from Let There Be Rock to open their first location out west,” said owner Jeremy Whiteley. The chain currently has other campuses in Pennsylvania (Whiteley’s home state), Maryland, Texas and West Virginia. The brand was launched in 2010 by musician Scott Marceron in Frederick, Md.
