Click here for the song list from 2001

We performed at Roosevelt Middle School after jazz bands from Anoka-Hennepin District 11 and Forest Lake: Northdale (directed by Dave Peterson), Fred Moore Middle School (directed by Lorie Landry), Jackson Middle School (directed by Mike Park), Oak View Middle School (directed by Dave Bratcher), Forest Lake's Southwest Junior High (directed by Phil Raaen), and Roosevelt Middle School (directed by Rich Raaen). The song crossed out below was on the original list but was skipped due to lack ot time. In addition, we made a medley of the last two songs, cutting over to "Sing, Sing, Sing" after the first chorus of "It Don't mean a Thing"; unfortunately, that meant omitting Mark's solo.
