Carlos, Age 14

On November 3rd, 2012 it was 2:00 in the afternoon, we arrived at 520 Benjamin. In there it was a house show, the band was called Strawberry Heritage. There were a plethora of people. After Strawberry Heritage was done playing, the Andy Angelo Press Club went upstairs and interviewed them.

One of the songs that Strawberry Heritage was playing was Red Rock. It was about the Upper Peninsula, [when] he went to the beach. There was a dog barking and jumping on top of us and licking our faces. There were two cats, an orange and white cat, and a black cat also! The two names were Micah and John.

When the Andy Angelo Press Club was done interviewing Strawberry Heritage it was 3:15 pm. When we left the festival the Andy Anderson Press Club went straight to Sparrows Coffee Shop to drink hot chocolate. It was so good- it had whipped cream. 

John told us, "Don't be scared of starting a new thing, don't give up."

Shirley, Age 10

A cat named Pancake that was white and had little maple spots was walking and wagging her tail as we were listening to the song flowing in our ears. It was November 3rd at the Lamp Light Music Festival when the Press Club got to interview Strawberry Heritage. John said he got his first guitar in the 6th grade and Micah and him started playing together last summer. A Press Club member, Donny, said, "I thought it was amazing!"

Another Press Club member, Shirley, asked, "Why?" 

"Because I love pets and they amazed me!" replied Donny.

Avelycia, Age 13

Lick! One of the Press Club members got kissed by a dog. On November 3rd the Press Club went to the Lamp Light Music Festival. The band was called Strawberry Heritage. 

The moment the Press Club entered the building it was quiet as space. Everyone was all cramped up. The music was quiet and melodious. They played about four songs about Michigan and its lakes.

After the presentation the Press Club went upstairs to ask the singers questions. One of the questions was, "how did you come up with the lyrics?" 

"They can come up from all different places. The lyrics from one song came when I was up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula."

Another question is, "how old were you when you got your first instrument?"

"My first guitar was in the 6th grade," John said.

"How do you guys travel?"

"We travel all around Michigan solo sometimes."

In conclusion the Press Club thought it was very fun. Also they went to get hot cocoa. 

Edgar, Age 10

On November 3rd the Andy Angelo Press Club went to watch Strawberry Heritage sing. The performance took place at 520 Benjamin at the Lamp Light Music Festival. 

Strawberry Heritage was asked some questions, for example one of the questions was, "How did you come up with the lyrics?" 

John, one of Strawberry Heritage's group members answered, "Lyrics can come up from all over the place."

Donny, Age 12

It was November 3rd when the Press Club went to the concert. The event lasted from November 2nd to the 4th. The tickets for the event cost $20 for the whole weekend, or $13 for a day. But before they went to the event, the Press Club went to the downtown library. They observed the library as they were passing by. They went to the top floor. They entered the room of "Dia de los Muertos."

After visiting the library, the Press Club went to the event. They went to 520 Benjamin Street (that's where the event took place). The Press Club had a little competition to see who would arrive first, boys or girls. Sadly, the girls won. Well the Press Club entered into the house.

Then the Press Club saw a plethora of people. It was very crowded. There were pets lingering in the house. Then they saw a singer playing a guitar, and singing at the same time. The Press Club was listening to the enjoyable music. Then they started petting the dogs and cats. 

The Press Club went upstairs to interview the musicians.

Press Club: "How did you come up with the lyrics?"

John: "They can come up from all different places. The lyrics from one song came when I was up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula."

Press Club: "How old were you when you got your first instrument?"

John: "My first guitar was in the 6th grade."

In conclusion the Press Club had a very good time. But the main idea was to interview them. They all had a great time.
