It’s cruise ship season once again!

It's cruise ship season once again!

Are you a local musician that is always looking for playing opportunities? Are you a former AHS band member that wishes that band never ended? We are looking for anyone that wants to come join the band to play for local cruise ship departures. We play pep band tunes during the final hour before the ship pulls away. The port pays the band a small stipend to do this so it is a fundraiser for the band and the kids. We will have a few practices before the first gig, so plenty of opportunity to get your chops back if needed. If you are interested, please contact Band Booster president Kathleen Strecker at kstrecker1701@gmail.com and let’s make some music!
