Snake River bands need your vote

December 6, 2011

THOMAS — Snake River bands need your vote. The band is competing for a private grant of $25,000 through the Pepsi Refresh Project.
"In five days of voting, the Snake River Band has placed 17 out of 224 entries," band director Randy Brady said.
To receive the $25,000 grant, Snake River needs to finish in the top 15 by the end of the month.
"[The grant money] would do a lot for our program," said Brady.
Brady's idea is to replace old, broken instruments and fill in instrumentation. Filling out instrumentation will make the band sound better and boost interest.
