Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)– Rich East High School held its second annual band banquet on Saturday May 16th. There were plenty of family and friends on hand to applaud the band for a tremendous year. This year the Jazz band and Drum Line, under the direction of Mr. Dwayne Sanders, traveled to Nashville, Tennessee, and captured first place in their respective divisions.

The band was also privileged to have The Jazz Experiment perform. One of the members of The Jazz Experiment, Steven Sanders, is former band member and a 2005 graduate of Rich East.

As this year winds down we would like to thank everyone involved in making this a great year for the Rich East Band.
