June 18 @12pm PDT- Brook Adams We are very excited to be having Oregon's sweetheart Brook Adams joining us at the Starlight Academy as our Celebrity Guest in June. Brook has been teaching and touring for many years, has a fantastic disposition and will be sharing some insights into a little easy listening rock, otherwise known as "Yacht Rock", the kind of music you'd be listening to while cruising around the port on your yacht. If you haven't met Brook yet, you're sure to remember him after this event.
Workshop Description: - Yacht Rock On Ukes
A class for people who like to sing. 'Smooth' pop music of the 70s and 80s by artists such as Doobies, Bee Gees, Christopher Cross, and more. I'll demonstrate chords, licks, and tricks to make the songs come alive, and of course we'll work out fun parts and sing a lot. I have charts. All Levels, drop-in.
About Brook Adams:
Brook is an atavistic dinosaur of 20th century pop. His songs evoke a timeless blend of soul, surf & psychedelia. He is a skilled player on guitar and ukulele. He used to do a show called "Abbey Road On Ukulele". As a youth, he liked the Guess Who, Sly & The Family Stone, Cat Stevens, and John Prine. Brook has two surf music albums, "Surf Monster" and "Surficana" with his band, "El Borko ¡Surf!". His solo albums "Ready To Burn" and "Fountain Of Love" explore the idea that people are basically good, and that in every heart there is a source of strength, courage and love.
