Chalmers Kids love School of Blues

Rock for Kids, the charity that offers music instruction for underprivileged children, opened up a door on the West Side of Chicago and the School of Blues walked--or danced--right in! Students and staff at Chalmers Elementary School at Roosevelt & California heard the Great Migration tales of Abb Locke's arrival, broke and hungry, in Chicago, before he hooked up with Howlin' Wolf to play sax. They sang along with Ray Allison on "Mustang Sally" and "Just my imagination' and got down with CC Copeland's bass-ic Kanye West and James Brown songs. The folks run a great little school in a tough hood. We hope to see you all again soon and maybe you can learn some music with us!
