The Party Band plays for the Wang Middle School

Lowell’s new brass band sensation The Riverhawk Party Band performs for the 5th and 6th grade students of the Wang Middle School on June 7, 2013. Performing in the local middle schools for young students is a whole new path of opportunity that I have never previously explored as a gigging musician. The amount of energy you can feel from a room full of 12-year-olds is amazing and inspiring. This was our 3rd middle school visit in the spring of 2013, and we hope to do more in the fall.

The Riverhawk Party Band for this show featured: myself Seth Bailin on saxophone; Anthony Prestigiovanni on trumpet; Kevin Webb, Mike Kaskiewitz, and Austin Condee on trombones; Savannah Marshall on bass drum; Danny Dugan on snare drum; Kyle Rees on cymbals; Devon Hurt on electric bass; Joseph Prieto on upright bass; and all the amazing students who joined us on stage with percussion!
