Hinchinbrooke Public School is holding a fundraising rock concert. This year Hinchinbrooke Public School has two rock bands: “Garbage Can,” for the boys and “Whatever Girlband,” for the girls. This is a continuation of last year’s music program at Hinchinbrooke. Last year we had one band which was a mix of genders called “Child’s Play.” This music program is a chance for the kids in the grade 7/8 class to learn how to play music and write music.We started out with many participants but numbers went down, giving us the perfect amount for each band. In the girls’ band this year we have Jessica Nedow on the drums, Shanda Vincent on the bass, Chelsea Putman on guitar and Sarah McCullough as lead vocal in both bands. For the boys’ band there are David Ostrom and Jordan Welch on the drums, Collin Green, Zack Clow and Dylan Stanzel on the guitar, as well Jed Hickey on the bass. Both bands have been practicing very hard since January. So far the girls’ band has a set list of six songs, including three originals and the boys have learned five songs. For some of us this is all new. There were only a few of us who knew how to play our instruments, but now we can play blind folded. We all have achieved so much.Our concert will be held at the Oddfellows’ Hall in Parham on Saturday, June 9th, from 7p.m. to 10 p.m. We will also be joined by Hinchinbrooke’s guitar club. The admission fee is $5. Proceeds will be going towards the grade 8 grad trip in June. We hope you can come and rock on with us.
