The Rock Club Has a Magic Moment

The Rock Club – helmed expertly by founder Frank McIlquham, and aided ably by the multi-talented Charles Fearing and an intrepid team of musician-coaches – is dedicated to improving the lives of veterans through music and engagement with the community. The work they do is marked by a certain steadfastness that requires a willingness to endure difficult and frustrating episodes. Which makes the special moments especially sweet. Such was the case on April 19 when Anthony Davis, a Century Villages at Cabrillo resident, showed up at one of our twice-weekly village jams with song lyrics he had already written. In a matter of minutes, the group came up with a catchy melody, and then fleshed it out to the point an anthem (“Joy In My Life”) representing our mission and spirit began to emerge. Steve Colman, Executive Director of Century Villages at Cabrillo, happened to drop by while the song was being birthed, and captured part of the process on his cell phone. It will be interesting to see where “Joy In My Life” goes in the coming weeks and months.
