Adam Halls and the VP's
On the 20th of June 2011 on a Monday afternoon which was a typical afternoon except that Adam Halls and the VP’s came to Oberthur Primary School.
They were a swing band. There were 4 members in the band. There names were Adam, Michael, Len and Joe. Adam was the vocalist and also played the trumpet. Michael played the trombone. Len played the electric piano. Joe played the drums. Joe also told us all the different drums on the drum. They where the bass drum which make a low sound, the tom tom drums which are the main parts of the instrument, the snare drum which you can snare to make a different sound, the crash cymbal which made a loud crashing sound and the hi-hat cymbal which made a different sound because you can open and close the two cymbals. They played 4 or 5 songs throughout the whole performance.
They got students to do call and response with them while doing a thing called scatting which is making up words on the go. Call and response is a kind of musical conversation.The people that got chosen where really good with the words they made up.
They also got students to play xylophones and play the notes C and G. The little kids started singing G C and when they said C they pointed to the side.
If you think all of this sounds boring, then you’ve made a HUGE mistake! It lasted for the last hour of the day. It was hemps of fun!
