The ETC Garage Band is our award winning instrumental back up band. The combo accompanies our three competitive groups (the All Americans, Rouge, and the Main Street Singers). The combo travels with the choirs and performs in all shows and competitions. It is a fun and challenging ensemble in which the students get to learn to play various styles of music as well as get the experience of learning how to perform as an instrumental ensemble backing up a choir.
All instruments can be considered but we generally stay with the makeup of Trombones, Trumpets, Tubas, Saxophones, Guitar, Bass Guitar, Piano, Synthezier, and Drums. The Garage Band practices once a week on the same days as the performing choirs. The name “Garage Band” comes from the loving nickname that the students have all given the rehearsal studio for ETC. We are always looking for more players so see the audition information page for more information or click the contact us button at the top of the page!
