Army Volunteers Entertain BR students

We had a special visit from the US Army's premier touring rock band yesterday.  It was a nice way to relieve the stress of a long winter season. During their visit band members took some time to meet with members of the BR band to discuss careers in music.  Thanks to Mr. LoRusso and the band members for doing an excellent job of hosting our guests.
