Lower Moreland High School hosted its 16th annual Java Jam last Friday where 29 different acts performed on stage in front of music enthusiasts from all different areas in Bucks and Montgomery counties.
One of the highlights was a group of LM students who performed the popular song "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore. It's been at the No. 1 slot on Spotify for months, and Lower Moreland students turned the catchy song into a jazz tune.
Anthony Tamaccio, who runs the event, said this was one of the best peroformances of all 16 Java Jam's that Lower Moreland has hosted. The performers include:
- Sam Ginsburg - Vocals
- Caroline Garlick - Electric Violin
- Seth Furman - Acoustic Guitar
- Leo Chalhoub - Piano
- Matt Smith - Tuba
- Chris Smith - Upright Bass
- Matt Gurbarg - Percussion
In just a few days after the performance, the YouTube clip has over 1,000 views.
“It has always been a great way for students to showcase their talents in an intimate setting among their friends, family and community,” Tamaccio said.
