The Police Academy had their debut show!
August 19, 2023
On Sunday, August 6, 2023, The Police Academy performed their very first show at Campus Jax in Newport Beach, CA! Josh, Christian, and Jon managed to pull the show off, and they couldn’t be happier, or rather more relieved, that it’s passed. Unfortunately, we can’t say it went off without a hitch. A first show always has problems, we just have to hope the problems aren’t too bad! Thankfully, any problems that arose quickly went away, and The Police Academy put on a show the audience, and the band will never forget!
Putting the show together didn’t happen overnight, over a week, or even over a month! Between picking the songs, learning them, arranging the order, building the show videos, and promotion, TPA’s debut show was around five months in the making. Of course, it doesn’t help that the band’s “Sting” lives two states away, which means rehearsals were few and far between. But due to the band’s attention to detail, and their strive for putting on a great and entertaining show, it was a busy five months leading up to the debut.
The guys in the band are not prone to getting nervous before shows, but this show may have been one of the few exceptions. However, despite the nerves brought on by tech issues during sound check, the show went on. It wasn’t perfect, but at the same time it was. Thanks to an audience that cheered the band on every step of the way. The crowd was AMAZING! By the end of the night, everyone was asking when the next show will be.

Josh, Jon, and Christian were a trio of talented musicians who shared a deep passion for the music of The Police. They spent countless hours practicing their instruments and perfecting their renditions of the iconic band’s songs. When they finally took the stage, their energy was infectious. The crowd could feel the joy emanating from the stage as they played each note with precision and enthusiasm. The audience couldn’t help but be swept up in the excitement, dancing and singing along to every familiar melody. It was a night of pure musical bliss. The atmosphere was electric, and the connection between the band and the audience was palpable. It was a night that would become the first of many more amazing performances!
