"The Band Plays On" by Rick Niece Book Review

"The Band Plays on...Going Home for a Music Man's Encore" is a perfect sequal in The Fanfare for a Home Series! A must-read for sure! The young boy we read about in "The SIde-Yard Superhero," is now all grown up, and goes back to his hometown of DeGraff, Ohio for an alumni band performance. Reflecting upon the people and memories from his childhood that we all got to know and love in the first book, and seeing where they are now. Entertaining, emotional, and inspirational! Rick Niece is truely such an inspiring author and person! Also...Dr. Rick Niece has launched a campaign of donating $1 of every book copy of "The Band Plays On" sold to the organization "Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation." This organization donates new and refurbished instruments to school music programs that cannot afford to purchase them. AND...An additional $1 will also be donated with each new Like on Facebook! So, not only are you reading a life changing book, but helping a great organization at the same time!
