Two months of work.
For the past eight weeks, the Upper School Band has been culminating their setlist for Homecoming 2019. The 32-member band performed last Friday during Parker’s Homecoming Carnival with an hour of music ranging from the Parliment-Funkadelic classic, “Give Up The Funk,” to a medley of Duke Ellington standards.
Along with a medley of Led Zeppelin songs, there was a Rolling Stones medley, one song by the Beatles, the “I Love Lucy Theme,” and a collection of songs by ABBA.
According to teacher Jim Witt, the band’s favorite was a tune recorded by James Brown in 1969 called “The Chicken.”
