Aqualand Poolside with a Purpose



Aqualand, the South Central Kentucky leader in pool and hot tubs, is joining forces with the Bowling Green Rockband Academy and the Bowling Green Amplify Foundation to host “Operation Stage Dive”, a fundraising event to benefit local children’s creative arts programs.

On March 5th from noon until 3 p.m., teams can participate in a “stage dive” at Aqualand’s Campbell Lane facility, where they will dress up in their favorite musical themed attire and jump into the pool to raise money for the Bowling Green Amplify Foundation.

After years of individual involvement in Bowling Green’s music scene and total domination with their private lesson programs, Jordan Weiss and Matt DeVore joined under one roof. Then they decided to invite a few of their friends.

Educated and experienced as performing musicians, BGRBA teachers are uniquely qualified to bring out the best in your playing. Besides offering private lessons, we offer our Rock Band program, a semester series designed and dedicated to getting you on stage with a band.

We are committed to creating and maintaining the next generation of local musicians!
