Kulshan College School Band
The Kulshan College School Band is a reward for hard work for qigong students, a fun way to move qi, a way to communicate something meaningful and fun for others, a mindful form of entertainment for all concerned, and a way to present Kulshan College to the public at large. We also learn useful skills of working together, helping each other, and building community. We learn the rewards of practice in an immediate, tangible way. KCSB performs publicly and would be interested in paid gigs as an opening act and house shows. Since our beginnings at the 2016 Kulshan College Community Retreat, we have performed publicly at the Green Frog open mic in Bellingham, WA, the Omak Longhouse on the Colville Reservation, Make.shift gallery, Kulshan Brewery, and busking on the streets of Bellingham and at the farmers market. We are currently working on a demo.
Kulshan College School Band performs covers and originals of a wide variety of genres. Our songs are selected mindfully and with purpose. Our instrumentation is on the quieter side of rock music with an emphasis on portability over volume. We play guitar, drums, bass, keyboard, harmonica, dobro, banjo, melodica, shruti box, harmonium, shaker, kazoo, cowbell, tambourine, vibraslap, something we call the "awesome stick," and we all sing. Our lineup also features choreographed dancing by our own Kulshanettes! We wish to put on an entertaining show. Membership in the school band is only open to current, dedicated students of qigong, and by invitation only.
