See you on Sunday, August 25th by 6pm for our REQUIRED PARENT/STUDENT EXPECTATIONS MEETING. It will conclude around 6:30PM. THIS IS SOMETHING WE DO AT THE START OF EACH NEW SCHOOL YEAR. AT LEAST ONE PARENT AND EACH STUDENT NEED TO ATTEND THIS MEETING.
Please bring your August dues, if you haven’t done so.
Please register on our website at: www.bandresourcesunlimited.com, if you haven’t already done so – I believe the following musicians need to register and use our instructional website: Jake C, Jake W, Trevor, Andrew, and Xavier.
At Sunday’s rehearsal, Wende will help us with vocals throughout the evening. Everyone should come prepared to sing a song of their choice, from our set list. We’ll continue to plan out the set for the Avo’s Jazz Festival performance on Monday, September 2nd. We’ll also rehearse our new selections: I Got Rhythm, When It’s Sleepy Time Down South, The Mooche, At the Jazz Band Ball, Black Bottom Stomp, and Hello Dolly. The audio recordings to these tunes have been uploaded to our website, so you can study them.
