Uptown Funk

The children were treated to a fantastic rock concert today, with a band featuring singers, guitarists, drummers and keyboards, all played by children from local schools.

The Joint Schools Rock Band is made up of 20 children from Baston, Langtoft, William Hildyard, Deeping St James, Linchfield and Market Deeping Community Primary schools.  They formed in September 2015 and have been playing together once a week since then.  They are currently on tour of the Market Deeping area and may be appearing at a school near you!  The audience were clearly inspired by what they saw today, as one Reception child announced that he was going home to ask for a drum kit.  The Rock Band's performance was very polished, thanks to lots of practise and the support of Ben Tindale, Jan Cross and Sarah Young.
