This weekend was a great experiences as the band travelled to Maryland for the Mid-Atlantic Jazz festival. The Creative Arts Morgan Village Academy Jazz Band was the only band from New Jersey in the Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival. We won first place in the Small Group Competition and Lakiem Shaw won an outstanding solo award. The band got to meet a lot of great musicians like Tim Warfield, Branford Marsalis, Wes Blies, Eric Byrd and many more. We can't wait to attend this competition next year. Next weekend we will be competing at the Seneca High School Jazz Festival, hope to see you all there!
