As 2017 gets underway, we just wanted to take the opportunity to look back on all that happened with Miss Direction in 2016. What a great year it was for the band!
In January 2016, the band performed at the Jazz Education Network National Conference while it was still known as The University of the Cumberlands Jazz Combo.
Since then we have:
Started performing regularly at The Wrigley Taproom in Corbin, KY
Added Ben Walker on piano, Aaron Zecchini on guitar and Jon Cormack on trumpet
Changed our name to Miss Direction
Had a photoshoot for shots of the band to use for advertising
Performed our first ‘concert’ at the Laurel County Public Library
Played for three weddings, a birthday party and a Christmas party
Recorded and shot a Christmas video for UC
Added several new tunes to our repertoire
In addition, we now have our own website: http://www.missdirection.name/
Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/missdirectionband
YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKmunXX617gpuR9KT3RHEJA
and an Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/missdirectionband/
Plans for 2017 include:
Enhancing 'the look' of the band
A recording session for promotional purposes
Expanding our reach further into KY and TN
Continuing to add to our repertoire
Making more great music and sharing it with everyone we can!
It’s been a great year and we are looking forward to what next year has in store! God Bless, Happy New Year and we hope to see you in 2017!!
