The Real Guitar Heroes in Salinas on Saturday

Happy new year to everyone.

The new year kicks off with a bang Saturday at Wise Music in Salinas, where the “Real Guitar Heroes” come out in the form of local youth bands August Sky, Population 5 and The Sledge Grits Band, as part of a music appreciation/concert even. The event starts at 3 p.m.

All three bands consist of school age children ranging from elementary to high school. August Sky does classic rock covers and originals. Population does more modern rock covers, while The Sledge Grits Band is an adorable all-girls group who cover a number of musical genres, fromfunk to rock and R&B.

There is no cover. Local music instructors will also be on hand with info on taking music lessons. Wise Music is located at 233 Monterey Street, Salinas. For information, visit
