Let me begin by giving the Blackwater Beats Jazz Band a HUGE shoutout for their accomplishments this past week. It was a busy week for these students with two big performances; one at the Pensacola Jazz Fest last Sunday and the other at the Imogene Theater last Thursday. You guys brought the house down Thursday night! On top of those performances, these students raised $1200 in donations for the band over the week. If you missed the concert Thursday night, you can CLICK HERE and watch it on our YouTube page.
The 3rd annual Crawfish Festival is this Saturday! Boy that got here quickly! I want to thank all of the folks who have signed up to help out. There are just a few spots left open for those that would still like to help out. Just CLICK HERE and sign up. Everyone will need to sign in inside the Band Room. From there, you will be directed to your work location. Please make sure you double check your times on the attached list. Mind you that the empty spots left blank on the online sign-up are not shown on this list.We will also have someone at check-in to explain what you will be doing at your location. More information is to come.
Percussion, this Thursday is the first of several percussion interest camps. This is not required, however, if you would like to get a jump start on next year and possibly meet some of the new potential MB&G Band Family, I encourage you to come on out. The times are below.
Colorguard, your interest camps will be during the first week of May.
Leadership, please take note of the meeting this Friday. This is in regards to the band favorites and planning for the band banquet.
That all for now. I hope everyone has a spectacular week!
