On a Sunday night in May Brentwood’s Composition Rock Band performed at the Duncan Showroom. The building was something out of a movie. Hanging lights, creepy antiques, and instruments from the 70s floated around the band as we prepared for the gig. Our style was a mix of indie rock and grunge as we performed songs we’ve written, and some covers of artists like Mac DeMarco.
The crowd was supportive and lively. Everyone cheered on our performers, and Long John and his crew helped us with everything. From setting up to washing away the nervous thoughts, they were there for the band.
It has been a great year for the band. This was our final performance outside of the school, and it couldn’t have gone better. Long John and his crew set up the stage and mixed our sound perfectly. The entire show was livestreamed for kids at Brentwood to watch, and many tuned in from the school. It was a touching ending as this was the last time most of our band would play with Mr McGill before they graduate.
