NEWARK, NJ -- Terrill Middle School was one of only three high school bands that played between periods at New Jersey Devils' games last year to be invited back in 2018. 

The band, comprised of 7th and 8th graders, played rock classics such as In The Midnight Hour by Wilson Pickett and Rolling on the River by Ike and Tina Turner. (See video below.) 

"They sounded great tonight," said John Gillick, Director of the Terrill Middle School Jazz Band. "We hope to be back next year."
