Gibby Haynes with the Paul Green Rock Academy & Victims Family - Performing a set of Butthole Surfers classics and other oddities!

The Paul Green Rock Academy (PGRA) is an advanced touring ensemble of young musicians between the ages of 10 and 18 who have been selected for their musical prowess, showmanship, love of performing, and ability to share the stage with professional musicians as they tour the world.

The students of Paul Green Rock Academy completed three 2022 Summer Tours as the backing band for Jon Anderson, lead singer of Yes, and for Gibby Haynes of Butthole Surfers. They have headlined the Meltasia Music Festival and performed at the Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice, Mountain Jam, and the international Frank Zappa Festival, Zappanale in Germany. This summer they will be doing two North American tours with Jon Anderson of Yes and with Gibby Haynes of Butthole Surfers.
 
PAUL GREEN is the founder of the international music school chain School of Rock and the apparent inspiration for the lead character in the movie.  Paul oversaw the growth of the company to 57 locations and changed the format for music education throughout the country.  Since that time, he has hosted his own radio show, been part of the production of two documentary films, been the music director for the Woodstock Film Festival, managed/tour managed/advised national musical acts, played the bass for the national touring band "Gene Ween Does Billy Joel", produced countless fundraisers and special events with numerous guest stars.  However, the Paul Green Rock Academy is the school of his dreams... a small audition-only school for the most dedicated students, with branches in Philadelphia and Southwestern Connecticut.
