Drummers to perform at NMAI

Rhythm of life

Elementary youth plan to drum their way to capitalA group of local elementary school pupils have been invited to Washington to perform at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian on June 1, but first the pupils have to raise enough money to make the trip—approximately $25,000.

The Steel Drum Band from Church Rock Academy will be holding a community family day to raise money at Sammy C’s Rock N’ Sports Pub & Grille in downtown Gallup Saturday from noon to 5 p.m.

Though the band began only eight months ago, it has already put on at least 20 performances with prestigious audiences such as the New Mexico Legislature and various tribal leaders.
