Every Monday morning, music lays all through the empty halls of MSJ. It is the seven o'clock band, led by our music teacher, Mr. Harding. The student musicians arrive at seven in the morning to play music. They play a large variety of music, from jazz to alternative rock. They are known for their skilled performances, which are always a great act at the school concerts.
About eight people make up the seven A.M. band, including three guitars, piano, baritone saxophone, and an accordion. They already have had a fun time, re-dubbing their band as the "seven-ten" band, referring to Mr. Harding's perpetual tardiness. They do not mind, though; they just want to play their music.
If you would like to participate to the seven o'clock band and add your sound to theirs, please speak with Mr. Harding. If you would like to see a performance by the seven o'clock band, go to the video page of this website.
