LAST CALL!!! Battle of the Bands – We are so lucky to have so many musically talented individuals in our neighborhood. It has been our yearly tradition to recruit parents and form bands that get together to practice- with the end goal of performing at Ballydoyle in the spring. This year’s performance date is scheduled for the evening of Saturday, April 30th. In order to continue this ten year tradition- WE NEED YOU!! Do you play an instrument? Do you sing? Have you never performed on stage, but always wanted to? Now is your chance! We are looking for musicians of ALL ability levels to perform. You do not need a full band to register, we are happy to help form bands.
