Fun Times at the Flatts & Sharpe Show!
Flatts & Sharpe music school had a show last night at Morseland (located at in Rogers Park, Chicago). A classical solo piano performance and guitar duet started off the concert, followed by six bands—comprised of adult music students and led by teachers—that rocked the house. The musicians ranged in age from just-out-of-college to “the oldies are what I grew up on.” But they all share a passion for music and a desire to jam.
The show was truly amazing and we packed the house! Not only was it great for students and teachers alike to show off what all their hard work has produced, but the audience was awesome! The atmosphere was both electric and intimate at the same time, and a Rogers Park community vibe was obvious. Chris Bell, the owner of Flatts & Sharpe, has a knack for bringing people together. Her tongue-in-cheek humor coupled with her clear appreciation for all that her staff and students do make Chris the perfect emcee. She even engaged the audience in some Flatts & Sharpe trivia and awarded prizes for correct answers.
On behalf of everyone at Flatts & Sharpe, thanks for coming out to see us! We hope you enjoyed your time as much as we did! In case you missed it, though, we have uploaded some videos of our bands practicing to YouTube. Here is one of our bands playing “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone” by the Monkees; and here is another band playing “Stuck in the Middle With You” by Stealers Wheel. Check back later for more pics and videos from the actual show!
