2017 Alumni Band Day Photos/Videos Request

Request for Photos and Videos from 2017 Alumni Band Day

Hello LHAB,

We hope everyone had a blast at Band Day this year, it was great to see everyone who attended this years event. We had tons of regular attendees and there were people attending for the very first time, as well as some who haven’t been back in several years. Thanks to everyone who made this year’s Band Day an exciting and memorable weekend. For those who missed Band Day, we hope to see you next year or at a local playing event in your area!!!

We’ve added a page to our website where your event photos and videos are available to view. BUT, we need your help in getting your great media content into the LHAB site. This is where YOU can help share your pictures, video or even YouTube links for all to appreciate.

Go HERE and share.  It is a very easy process and a great way to show off your pictures. Enter details of the photo, place, member names (if you want), etc., and you can indicate by section or event. HAPPY POSTING and please add as many as you’d like.

Thanks and Hookem
