Remember when you were both younger and would go see bands play at the local club? If you’re like me, your kids came along and put an end to that. Is it really worth forking over seventy bucks for a sitter to see your nephew’s garage band fumble its way though Sweet Home Alabama?
Wishing to create an atmosphere where children could be exposed to decent live music, Debbie Lee created Rock-N-Romp, in which she opens her Washington, D.C. home to local bands, parents, and their children. These afternoon concerts give local bands great exposure, parents a chance to once again attend rock shows, and, most importantly, expose live rock ‘n’ roll music to a new generation of fans.
