The Boys & Girls Club of Bellevue Teen Center commemorated the opening of its music room Wednesday with a visit from Seattle Sounders Lamar Neagle, Andy Rose and Brad Evans. Team band Sound Wave entertained the crowd of children and other Club associates.

The soundproofed room — replete with recording equipment, microphones, snakes, guitars and drum set — was constructed under Major League Soccer's MLS: Works outreach initiative.

In a statement before the room's reveal, Club President and CEO Kathy Haggart urged children to practice diligently and "become the next Pearl Jam."

A paper cover came down to a band ready and jamming inside the booth. The Sounders captain and midfielders soon shuffled in to try out the instruments themselves.

"We're the new Beatles, yeah?" Brad Evans joked in a faux-British accent, after playing a few beats on the drum set. "No, really, that's all I know how to play."
