Mia Boostroom CD RELEASE Party Nov 15, 2008

It's time to Party and you're invited!

Where: Rick's Music
Time: Doors open at 8 Tickets $5

This Saturday night Rick's Music will host the premiere launch of Mia Boostroom's debut CD, "Lately" We predict that this is only the beginning for this talented Dighton 16-year old!

You may have seen Mia when she first made her debut on our Open Mic stage less than 2 years ago. There, we have watched her grow from a shy music student into a skilled songwriter and performer who made it into the Las Vegas round on this year's America's Got Talent. Amazing!

HOW DID SHE DO IT? We couldn't be more proud of Mia who, besides her vocal talent and songwriting ability, is accomplished on both piano & guitar. Mia's taken lessons for years.

Meeting other musical teens, learning from them and the variety of performers that come our way, Mia has flourished in an atmosphere where the creative spirit abounds. Just ask her about it.

Mia's debut CD, "Lately" is made possible by the wonderful people at Rawkstars, Inc.® who have often partnered with us at Rick's Music to provide music educational opportunities to kids.

Rawkstars delivers programs that foster and celebrate music through discovery, education, creation and participation. Their concept is best described by their Executive Director, Jonathan Jacobs, "The portal is music, an especially compelling force for young people. It gives the rest of their education relevance. We don't exist to churn out virtuosos; music education requires kids to develop skills and attributes that will serve them throughout their lives. Music is the vehicle, not the destination!" We at Rick's applaud their efforts and...

We are honored to host Mia's CD Release Party this Saturday, which will showcase Mia along with some very talented Boston musicians, featured on her CD. The evening's proceeds will benefit Rawkstars programs. Learn more about Rawkstars at
