Last month I gathered up several baskets of "found" objects and materials that were slated for recycling bins, and headed to the Rock-n-Romp to debut the Junkyard Music Program. What started as a small group of parents wanting to expose their children to bands that played "their" music at a child-friendly volume, has now turned into one of the most anticipated family events in Memphis.
The kids built the most fantastic musical contraptions, then played along with the bands once the music started. Be sure to look for us at upcoming Rock-n-Romps this year and The Cooper-Young Festival next month. Also, check out Don Knaack aka The Junkman, who has graciously lent his music for our website and is working with us to develop projects for Memphis city students.
Stay tuned for more updates in the coming months, in the meantime,
