Jerry Joseph and Michael Lewis. These guys raised $25,000 via an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. The contributions are being used to bring musical instruments to the students and to pay for the trip. (Apparently How to Shoot Backseat Sunglass Selfies will be part of the curriculum as well.)

Michael Lewis (at right) has already been involved with the school. This is from a 2013 session.

Our Paris pal Michael Herrman (Buoy LaRue) has also worked extensively with the Rock School Kabul students. He'll be performing at the June 4 concert as well. (Photo by Michael Lewis.)

Jerry and Michael have been photo-documenting and blogging on various social networking platforms during their time in Kabul. Check out Jerry's latest report.

Here's your opportunity to learn firsthand about the Rock School and to hear Jerry Joseph, Michael Lewis and Michael Herrman with great local musicians in a rare acoustic performance in Paris. PLEASE JOIN US FOR A GREAT EVENING (And help spread the word!)
