Steel bands put Obama crowds in holiday spirit

Elena Matos

The Obama Steel Drum Bands had an excellent performance Monday night with appearances from Mr. Schraderʼs middle school band, 3rd and 4th period bands and 8th period band.They performed songs such as the classic Christmas songs Jingle Bells, Carol of the Bells, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and songs from the ballet, the Nutcracker. Songs that everyone knows such as Tequila, Limbo, Akon, Under the Sea, and Brazil, which was performed twice, were also performed at that concert.

Most people thought that the concert was very good. There were only a few minor mistakes with some of the more difficult songs, but few people noticed because the harder songs were oftentimes the faster ones. The performers seemed pleased with their overall performances, and many even asked to be listed as the star. They believe it went well, as did Mr. Schrader.
