Teens Rock for Needy

"It pays to have your mom as a GM," says Shey Euphoria guitarist Ian Cochran, 17. His mother Kathleen is general manager at Loews Coronado Bay Resort and Spa, the site of three recent "Jam with the Band" shows for teens.

"We treated [Jam with the Band] as a nightclub," says Kathleen Cochran. An outside bar served virgin cocktails, and pizza was donated by California Pizza Kitchen. Proceeds from admission ($10 for kids, $20 for adults) went to Modest Needs, a charity that helps needy people with emergency expenses.

The shows drew between 100 and 200 people, and three bands of teenagers played each time. Besides the top-notch sound and light systems in the resort's Commodore Ballroom, bands' images were projected onto two six-by-eight-foot video screens.

"We were lucky to play all three [shows]," says Cameron Wilson, 17, the singer/bassist with Numskull. Wilson and his bandmates go to Grossmont High School with the members of Shey Euphoria, which played all three gigs as well.

Loews Coronado is planning a fourth Jam with the Band event around Christmas. Spokeswoman Anne Stephany says Loews will bring back the event at least three times next summer.

Regarding the fact that four other teen bands wanted to play but were not invited, she says, "I think we'll be more open for other bands next year. We'll have a more formalized process for band selection."

Local bands interested in playing are welcome to call 619-424-4000.
