In The News

 

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

In June of 2016, we traveled to Cleveland, OH to perform at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.  The event was for Hungry for Music, which puts instruments in the hands of kids all over the United States.

After the game, we attended a baseball game and stopped by the City Museum in St. Louis on the way home.

 

TEDx

In August 2016, we traveled to Kansas City, MO to perform at the Ted Talk Convention for an audience of over 3000 people!  This Ted Talk is the largest in the United States.

We were treated like VIPs the whole time with our private dressing room, free admission to Science City, a picnic on the lawn of the Kauffman Center, and a GREAT after party with lots of food and dancing.  On the way home we stopped by the City Museum in St. Louis and saw the St. Louis Arch!  BIG THANKS to Mike Lundgren and all the TEDx KC people for such an incredible trip!

Our Advanced kids played our Zeppelin medley (conducted by Brittany) and our Beginners played So Danso Samba (conducted by Kelsey.).  Our Steel group performed in the simulcast room (conducted by Meg & Price).
