I’m in a band with my friends Ron, Paul and Bingo. We think we’re the next big thing. That’s why we called our band The Next Big Thing! We’re going to be famous – and in the near future, too! We practise all the time, and when we finish school, we aren’t going to go to university. We want to spend a lot of time playing music together. We have big plans, and there won’t be time for university!
We have a CD and we wrote all the songs ourselves. We’re going to sell the CD at our concerts. We’re playing tomorrow in our town, and after that there’s going to be a tour. We’re travelling in our bus, but we’ll visit a lot of places. We’re going to show everyone what we can do. We’re getting ready tonight. It’s going to be great!
When we’re famous, we’ll play big concerts. On this tour, we’re playing in small places, but you can be sure we won’t forget the little places. So come to our concert tomorrow, and one day, you’ll say ‘I knew them before they were famous!’
