It is a new era of rock in MODesto!
MODSTOCK takes a big view of our local talent, rolls it all up in a paisley print and mixes it up with regional pro bands and creates a kaleidoscope ultra vivid exciting music with a festival that will have something for everyone.  Keep your eyes peeled on the sky,

The VMI Music Institute was founded by local guitar guru Darin Morris. His goal was to teach people how to be rock stars and what it takes to be a rock band.  An all-day Peace, Love and Music festival will be at Mancini Bowl at Graceada Park on August 18 and is sponsored by Roberts Auto Sales and brought to you by Valley Music Institute.  VMI is changing music in Modesto and does about 70 bands a year and they plan to double or triple in the future. Justsayin’.
