We've known Rock Band Land co-founders Brian Gorman and Marcus Stoesz for a while now. They're actively involved in the San Francisco music scene (Brian through his band Tartufi, and Marcus with The Music Wrong). What really sticks out about Brian and Marcus is the way that they've translated their talents as musicians into a real-world business venture. Making a living as a musician is tough anywhere, let alone within the most expensive city in the country.
With Rock Band Land, the duo has created a space where once a week, kids ages 4 through 8 get together at the Verdi Club and write original stories and rock songs together. No parents allowed!
Despite being aware of what Rock Band Land is, this was our first exposure to witness it up close – and it revealed itself to be so much more than we had expected.
