Rock it Out – Girl Scout Style!
Last week, a field reporter for Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska had the chance to catch up with three of the most up and coming all girl bands in Nebraska! – SEAK, Mon Amore and Flying Sparks. It’s pretty unbelievable but the trio of multi-colored-hair bands met up to play a truly unforgettable show. A night forever etched in the minds and hearts of those lucky enough of catch wind of this very underground, VIP-only show! It was a whirl-wind of a week but we were lucky enough to get quotes from a few band members. Oh – and have fantastic, exclusive behind-the-scenes pics, as well as photos from the event!
Here is a full group photo before the first band went on stage:
