Three young musicians are rocking the Midsouth, hoping perhaps one day to rock the world with their fresh brand of rock ‘n roll.“For right now we’re just having fun, but someday it would be cool to do something bigger,” said 12-year-old guitarist Cameron LeDuc of ColorBlind.He along with sister, Claire LeDuc, 15, who is the band’s drummer, and lead vocalist Mileah Milstead, 14, make up the rock trio which has been performing for three years. They are high school and middle school students.The group has been trained by the LeDucs’ father, Scott LeDuc, who was himself in a band for several years and their mother, Jackie LeDuc, who is a classically trained musician and actress. Mr. LeDuc sometimes helps the group by backing them up on keyboards.“Right now we are playing some places, the fair and at schools like Hickory Creek,” Milstead said, the group doing a show at Hickory Creek on Thursday as a reward for the students’ performance the first month of school.“They actually asked for us,” Claire LeDuc said, noting it was the third consecutive year they performed at Hickory Creek.The trio was greeted by an excited audience, deafening screams at times as the group did selections mainly from Top 40 hits along with some oldies like “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner which they did for their encore.“I’d say that was the hottest crowd we’ve ever performed for,” the younger LeDuc admitted, noting the crowds have varied.
