The major headliner for the upcoming Sacramento Music Festival is "Collective Soul."  

It's something of a homecoming for the drummer of that band because he grew up in Sacramento and still maintains ties here.

Johnny Rabb went to Rio Americano High School and for years honed his drumming craft at the local music store Skip's and the Stairway to Stardom program.

"I've done many things in Skip's with my career from Stairway to Stardom, which was amazing, all the to being able to teach there and have Skip really support everything I have done as a musician, as he does all his students," Rabb said. 

Rabb says he still goes back to the store as much as he can. Maybe he'll find time to do that this weekend as Collective Soul plays the Sacramento Music Festival Sunday in Old Sacramento.
