Great performance on Saturday! The new band is already shaping up nicely!!
We’re sure going to miss Cameron, Tim and Colton – they have been so dedicated to our band.
See you on Sunday, August 11th by 6:30pm for our rehearsal at Flesher-Hinton Music Store. We will have at least one drummer auditioning for our band on Sunday. Matt and Colton are joining us for this rehearsal – thanks so much guys!
Please remember that we are still trying to find a drummer for the new band. We are now extending invitations to advanced 8th grade drummers who would like to audition. Please help with inviting any 8th through 12th graders who you feel would be a good match for our band.
Also, please remember to bring your August dues on Sunday.
At Sunday’s rehearsal, we’ll plan out the set for the DJC Picnic performance on Sunday, August 18th. We’ll also rehearse 2 new selections: I Got Rhythm & When It’s Sleepy Time Down South. The audio recordings to these 2 tunes have been uploaded to our website, so you can start studying them.
