PRESS RELEASE: HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE TO METALLICA
March 10th, 2008
I’m proud to announce the upcoming release of a tribute CD to Metallica produced by students from La Frontalière High School, located in Coaticook, Québec, Canada. “Teach ‘Em All: A High School Tribute To Metallica” will be released on Friday May the 23rd 2008 at 8:00 pm at the “Pavillon des Arts et de la Culture” in Coaticook. For the occasion a 2 hour show will be presented.
The “High School Tribute” project is now in its third appearance. In 2006 and 2007 we produced 2 tributes to KISS: “Christine Sixteen” and “Christine Sixteen 2”. These CD (500 and 600 copies respectively) were sold in more than 20 countries around the world, from Brazil to Japan. Futhermore, the students/singers went to the Grand Opening of the KISS Coffeehouse in Myrtle Beach during the month of June 2006. They had the pleasure of meeting Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley privately. These 2 founding members of KISS knew about the project and said they were really impressed by the quality of the production of the CD and the talent of the singers.
The goal of this non-profitable project is to give some talented young
people the experience of creating a music album from start to finish. We also try to help them discover, and appreciate a kind of music that they aren’t usually accustomed to – different from what the usual Top 40 and MOR radio stations play. All the singers are regular students from the High School and the musicians are all former students of that same school.
For this year’s project we are lucky enough to welcome 2 additional and very talented musicians on board. First, Angelo Coppola from Detroit, a 12 year old drummer sensation. Angelo was the winner of the television show « America’s Most Talented Kids » a couple of years ago. He will play on 2 songs. Also, we are really proud and excited to welcome John JD DeServio of “Black Label Society” and “Cycle Of Pain” fame. JD will also play on 2 songs on the upcoming CD.
