For those folks who attended last year’s Believe Tour you will remember the 14 year old boy Robert Peirre who joined us. It worked out great having an actual jr high student with us on tour in many ways. I was forced to think about every component of the event through Robert’s eyes. I can remember many conversations back stage about various elements of the program and how I changed them after talking with Robert.
Well this year we are fortunate to continue the tradition of having a jr high student actually with us! It also serves as a reminder to all of us who work with jr high students regularly how different every student really is. Let me introduce you to Evan. Evan will be playing the keytar on stage all weekend. Be ready for the killer Chicken Dance song on Saturday afternoon. If you are joining us at Believe this spring be sure to have your students all log onto www.savethekeytar.com to learn the moves to, soon to be world famous, ‘Mas Tortillas’. Mas Tortillas will be featured at Believe during break times.
Just to give you a glimpse into the nutty mind of Evan check out this cartoon that him and his Dad recently worked on. We can’t wait to see you and your students this spring!
