VIDEO: Perham High School of Rock

Email News Alerts

This video shows some of the band members playing their only country song, a rocked-up remake of Toby Keith's "American Soldier." Senior Joe Ahlfs is on lead vocals.


Drums thumping, guitars blaring, bodies rockin' and speakers blasting.

One thing's for sure: This is no ordinary music class.

Mention the 'classics' to the 20 or so students in Perham High School's Rock Band class, and they're thinking more along the lines of Queen and Styx than Mozart and Beethoven.
