Making the Band Rocks Sedalia This Weekend [INTERVIEW]
Kids, for a few years now, Justin Lawson has organized this huge local music event: Making the Band. If you don’t know what it is, well, then you must live under a rock or something. Is it moldy under there? It must be at least somewhat comfortable, I mean, you choose to live there. Anyway… Justin’s a local music teacher here in the Sedalia area. Making the Band is a big concert of all local bands, usually students of his. The genesis of the idea happened after several of the students got together in different incarnations and collaborated. Sometimes they had known each other before, sometimes they hadn’t. Sometimes they worked up a cover song, sometimes they wrote an original. Sometimes the bands even stayed together and kept playing. Either way, it was a great, creative way to get kids working together on something new.
The concert will be this Saturday, July 20, at the American Legion, 2016 W Main St. They’ll start at noon, and here’s the lineup:
- Noon- Farren Bankovich

They’ll have some chances to win a guitar and a drum kit, and I’m sure there will be chances to get music and pictures with the groups. You can also go to their Facebook page to get more information, and there’s a link where you can hear some music too.
Our very own Kaleb will be out there broadcasting live from the concert! I’m sure he’ll have some good giveaways, too. Don’t miss it!
