About

Chuck BrennanThe Brennan Rock & Roll Academy offers children of the Boys and Girls Club a unique opportunity to not only learn about musical instruments, but to also grow and gain confidence by performing and working in groups.  The academy was founded by Chuck Brennan, a philanthropist and owner of Dollar Loan Center who also made a 20 year commitment to the incredible program and facility in which the costs will total well over $3,000,000.

The academy is constantly having events and fundraisers, along with visits from iconic rock stars.  The events raise money that goes directly to the academy in order to keep it in first-class shape and to put on elaborate, star studded fundraisers.  The money from events helps cover daily operation and facility costs.  It is also put towards the musical equipment needed including guitars, basses, keyboards, drums, microphones, speakers and everything else needed to have high quality studio rooms and a concert venue. The Brennan Rock and Roll Academy bus that is used for transporting the children to and from the main Boys & Girls Club facility across town, is also funded by money from events. Rock legends including Alice Cooper, KISS, Night Ranger, Slash and many others have already shown their support towards the academy events and program purpose.  The events and fundraisers are always top notch and have sponsor packages with remarkable incentives and exclusive auction items that bidders can purchase.

You have to start somewhere and this is the place where it starts. I wish we had this when I was a kid.

It's all about giving back. Sooner or later success means giving back. It's not an option, it's an obligation.
