The Performance Lab
Band of SLAS
by Anthony Yates
During class hours, the students practice in
a band for upcoming events at the school.
They get almost complete freedom in picking
the songs they want to cover and they also
receive advice, guidance and help from their
teacher, Mr. Gary.
LAS has several unique and interesting
classes, but there is one particular class
that stands out from the rest: Performance
Lab. This class allows students almost entire
freedom to explore their passion in music,
and it also helps and directs them into form-
ing a band that performs at almost all events
The band itself loves the genres EDM and pop music, and they draw a vast amount of inspira-
tion from the two. Often, they blend their style with pop, EDM and rock.
At the time of writing this article, the band have been practicing a popular EDM/Pop song
called “Faded”, and they are preparing to perform it live at the Back to School Bash.
The band’s bassist, Jonason, stated “the band is going to do great at the bash.”
