My band

Im in a band with my friends Ron, Paul and Bingo. We think were the next big thing. Thats why we called our band The Next Big Thing! Were going to be famous and in the near future, too! We practise all the time, and when we finish school, we arent going to go to university. We want to spend a lot of time playing music together. We have big plans, and there wont be time for university!

 

We have a CD and we wrote all the songs ourselves. Were going to sell the CD at our concerts. Were playing tomorrow in our town, and after that theres going to be a tour. Were travelling in our bus, but well visit a lot of places. Were going to show everyone what we can do. Were getting ready tonight. Its going to be great!

 

When were famous, well play big concerts. On this tour, were playing in small places, but you can be sure we wont forget the little places. So come to our concert tomorrow, and one day, youll say I knew them before they were famous!
