Tuesday’s Red Bank oRBit brings you an update on the kids from Rockit! For Kids, the Red
Bank-based classic rock conservatory whose students have been leaving
parents, professional musicians and even Rockit commander Bruce Gallipani
“blown away” with their rapidly evolving chops.
In fact, when those road-grizzled veterans in the Marshall Tucker Band
return to the Count Basie Theatre this weekend, they’ll be sharing the bill with an
opening act of their own special request the kids from Rockit, who
impressed the Tuckers (and, in one case, even jammed with them) with their
scary-good prowess on everything from Patsy Cline to Rush.
