Concert Raises Funds for West Mesa High Band

The concert will be held from 3 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, August 24.

A benefit concert called “Rock of All Ages” will feature rock bands with members ranging in age from 15 to 60 to raise money for Albuquerque Public Schools West Mesa High School Band from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 24, in the Randy Castillo Performing Arts Center at West Mesa, 6701 Fortuna Road NW (map).

“We wanted to make it fun for all ages,” said West Mesa Band director Maria Chavez, adding that the event will feature more than eight local bands including “Psyckick Monkey,” “Beat Sponge,” Balistic,” and “Frequency Fun House.”

Tickets for the event are $5 and are on sale at Baum’s Music, Record Roundup, or by calling the school at 831-6993, ext. 57107.  Tickets also will be available at the door.

The event also will include food, beverages and activities for children.

“Those buying a ticket also will have a chance to win door prizes including an Al Unser, Jr., autographed race jacket,” Chavez said.

Funds raised will go to help defer the cost for the West Mesa band to participate in competitions and other events.
