Three bands!

Mayberry was treated to a Fabulous performance last night in our new Fine Arts Center. Guest performance by Woody Gap Band of Steel led the toe-tapping event:



Yes, steel drums...from the smallest public school in our state. They did quite well, playing a nice variety of music...even a country number. Yep, that was probably a first in the history of steel drums.

The UCHS Jazz and Concert bands were next. We especially love percussionist Macey there on the R:



Now on the L (momentarily) in the Concert Band:


Those playing percussion get their exercise during every performance.

Love this gal...friend Sean is a sweet senior. Hi, Sean! We are gonna miss you. And Ansley, who I learned QUIT band. The stinker.



We are sooo proud of all these fine young men and women. Going on the NYC trip with all of them made the performance even more special to me. Great kids; great memories!

Life is mighty good, y'all.

There are some mighty fine kids out there. Mighty fine. Seems all we hear about anymore are the inner city thugs. What a delightful post.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the kitties. ♥♥♥

I'm so proud of them, too! I enjoyed the concert - just wished the Jazz band and concert band had time to play a few more pieces. "Always leave them wanting more" is the case here!

Go kids! Look like the new Performing Arts Center is getting its money's worth of use. Happy weekend!
