I post a lot about Isaac’s middle school band but they are just so good, I can’t help but post more. This weekend, they attended the Regional Jazz Band Festival in Huntington, WV and played as awesome as they always do.

The band director is a fantastic guy and loves the kids…they love him too and it shows when they play. The amazing thing in my opinion, is that there is no official jazz band program in the school. The kids and the director work before school or after school or on weekends…on their own time. I think they are amazing regardless of age, but even more impressive is that this band is 6th-8th grade kids. It is just unbelievable I think! I wish my phone captured the dynamics and quality of their sound better than it did. In the end, they got a “superior” rating which is as good as it gets. We will find out soon how they rank state-wide…here’s hoping for a top finish!
