            Music's Edge began as a unique music program that was created by Tim McLaughlin in 2004.  This will be the WOW Hall's tenth year hosting the very successful rock camp.  Each session goes full-steam all week and ends with a full-blown, rockin' show, with all the lights and sound that would make any rock star proud.  The two “gigs” will be Friday, August 3, and Friday, August 17.  Each camp will also have a second show; the first will be at the Saturday Market on August 4 (3:30-5:00 pm). BlairAlly Outdoor stage is the show for the 2nd session. 3:00 - 6:00 pm.

            Music's Edge is interested in all skill levels and all instruments.  Tim McLaughlin, bandleader of the acclaimed group Eleven Eyes, heads up a pro staff that includes Zak Johnson, John Shipe, John Raden plus special guests.  Music's Edge features different workshops each day with music industry professionals and performers. 

“This was AWESOME!” - Music’s Edge Student

Tim's main motivation with Music's Edge is to offer a music program like no other and give up-and-coming musicians opportunities he only dreamed of when he was that age.  There are many music camps that teach musicians how to play better music, but Tim wanted to go beyond that.  Creating a full set of non-stop music, and performing with confidence and charisma on a big stage with huge sound and lights was one opportunity Tim wanted to offer.  To be able to play a "festival-style" set on an outdoor stage is also an important experience to have.

“What a great thing you do.” - Pete Peterson, KWVA DJ

Music's Edge continues to grow every year.  It has been amazing to see some of the students go on to great college music programs, have successful bands, and continue having music in their lives.  If Music's Edge helped even just a little bit with those achievements, then Tim couldn't be happier.

“You guys are amazing! Thanks for giving our kids the rock star experience!” - Amy Parker, parent
