International Guitar Month was created in 1987 as an annual celebration of guitars and the people who make magic with them. In accordance with this month of honoring Jimi’s favorite instrument, Axis Music has lined up two guitar-related film screenings and a special lesson package designed to extol the virtues of the old gitbox.


Hail! Hail! Rock ‘n’ Roll!

(Rated PG)

In the wake of Chuck Berry’s untimely passing, it’s time to celebrate his life and his contributions to music. Hail! Hail! is a 1986 documentary film that chronicles two separate concerts celebrating Chuck’s 60th birthday. Featuring interviews, behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage, and performances by Linda Ronstadt, Keith Richards, Robert Cray, Etta James, and Eric Clapton among others, this tribute film is a fascinating look into the life and career of “the father of rock ‘n roll”.

When: Saturday, April 15th @ 6:00 pm

Where: Axis Music Academy in West Bloomfield

This screening is free to attend. Pizza, snacks, and beverages will be provided. Please RSVP with Donny by emailing dklemmer@axismusic.com.


It Might Get Loud

(Rated PG)
This 2008 documentary film chronicles the careers and playing styles of prominent guitarists Jimmy Page, The Edge, and Jack White. The film traces each player’s musical backgrounds to their upbringings and early influences before culminating in a meeting of the three guitarists dubbed “The Summit”. In these final scenes, the three guitarists not only converse about their influences and techniques, but they also play each other’s songs together, teaching each other how to play “I Will Follow“, “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground“, and “In My Time of Dying“.

When: Saturday, April 22nd @ 6:00 pm

Where: Axis Music Academy in West Bloomfield
