MAB March Area Band Event

Wow! What can I say, it was truly magical for the area bands to get together and play in person. The children had smiles beaming from ear to ear, soaked up the atmosphere and were seen moving to the rhythm. They have been learning the following pieces Jambo Bwana, Lilo and Stich Roller-coaster and Bob Marley’s One Love. The performance gave the children the chance to showcase all the hard work and practice they have been putting in. It even brought happy tears to the parents’ eyes. We are extremely proud of you Area Band, you made Old Basford School very PROUD!

What a start to Area Band I was blown away with the enjoyment shown, the effort and determination you put into your guitar playing. You were a credit to Old Basford School and I am so happy to be jamming with you again.

We kick started our first session learning to play part of Bob Marley's famous song One Love. We had lots of fun practising and were on point! Super stars!
