Congratulations to the Kickapoo Jazz Band on an outstanding performance at the Parkview Jazz Festival!! The group earned 1 ratings across the board & received numerous compliments from the judges! So. I left work early Friday to attend Jazz's Jazz festival at a local high school. First of all, may I just say, I need … Continue reading Earning Ones All Around
My Lord I'm going to miss these kids.

It rained yesterday and Jazz said that the band director made them practice anyway, probably to prepare them for today, … Continue reading Saturday Schedule at Broken Arrow
