Just Teachers

ROCKPORT — The Rockport Opera House, 6 Central St., opens its doors on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 6 p.m. for Groove Fest! -- Midcoast Music Academy’s groovin' rockin' annual dance party! MCMA is collaborating with two of the Midcoast's premier dance bands, The Right Track and Just Teachers. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go to support MCMA and its mission to provide music education to all, regardless of financial constraints.

The evening will kick off with opening acts by MCMA student bands The Other Room Band and the Never Late Band, followed by a mix of live dance tunes that will have everyone on their feet until 10 p.m. There will be a cash bar, 50/50 raffle, appetizers and door prizes. Costumes are also encouraged and welcome! Admission is $25 at the door, $20 in advance and $10 for students, and can be purchased at Midcoast Music Academy, online at, or at Graffam Seafood Bros. in Rockport. All proceeds will benefit MCMA.

Just Teachers is comprised of educators from the Midcoast. They are two-time winners of Trekkapalooza and were recently named Village Soup’s Best of the Best Band for the third time. Their mash-ups of current and past dance hits are huge crowd favorites.

The Right Track is a high-energy 11-piece band with a full horn section. Also hailing from the Midcoast, they specialize in R&B, soul, funk and contemporary tunes. Their tight arrangements and harmonies, and the funkiest brass north of Boston, create a smooth signature sound that makes it impossible to sit still.

Midcoast Music Academy, located at 279 Main St. in Rockland, provides the highest quality music instruction to students of all ages and skill levels in a fun, relaxed and creative environment. MCMA emphasizes access to music education regardless of financial constraints and combines the fundamentals of music – theory, notation and ear training – with a contemporary approach to learning.

MCMA is grateful to its Groove Fest! sponsors: Camden Coast Real Estate, Jackson Landscaping, Sea Dog Brewing, Rockland Ford and Camden House of Pizza.
