Abigail Lumley said, “Having practices in the morning was not an issue for me because I am normally up that early anyway. However, having all of those practices, and putting all that work into our songs really paid off because the concert was lots of fun. I loved the songs that Mr. Truckenmiller picked out for us. Being a part of jazz band is so much fun because off all the different things we do, and I can’t wait until our next performance.”
The four songs they performed at the concert were “Have a Cool Yule” by Arr. Mike Lewis, “Skylark” by Carmichael/McDougall, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” by Loesser/ Murtha, and “Too Hot Lady” by Kool and the Gang. During the band’s performance of “Baby It’s Cold Outside”, two vocalists, Katelyn Mehlhaus and Brayden Biersner, sang along side the band, and Junior Kyle Peter had a Tenor Saxophone solo.
Band instructor, Chris Truckenmiller, was very happy with their performance and said, “The kids worked really hard in preparation of the concert, they made everything lots of fun, and really got into the songs we played. My favorite song from our performance was “Too Hot Lady” because it was very groovy and the kids responded very really well to it.”
