You know you’re from East Greenwich when you understand what people are talking about when they refer to “Airband.”
This annual rite of passage for all who pass through the halls of East Greenwich High School – students and (some brave) teachers alike – Airband is a feat of lip-syncing teamwork that is unlike just about anything else you might see on a high school stage.
For the uninitiated, there are two types of acts: class and group. Winning the class act is a huge point of pride. This year’s winner, the junior class, had a Disney-themed act. For the judges – Mrs. Rath, Mr. Levesque, Mrs. Mong, Mr. Wren, and Mr. Brocato – it did the trick. Seniors came in second, with an around-the-world theme, followed by sophomores, then freshman.
The top group act was W.A.R.D. (We Are Nerds).
The evening’s able, amusing and acrobatic hosts were Adam Sticca and Natalie Valicenti.
Here are some photos from the evening:
