“The Band Directors went above and beyond the call to make sure I had the Best arrangements from my songs as a vocalist. My fantasy is to play, “the Big Room” or do a lounge in Vegas. Jazz Vermont helped give me the feel of how it would be with an eighteen piece band in front of a large crowd in the Crowne Plaza ballroom, not Vegas, but close.”
– Lou Laramay, Ponce Inlet Florida
