R/W Week 2017: Rocking out at Ramstock

Ramstock, an annual battle-of-the-bands, took place on Monday in Manual’s courtyard, serving as the kick off to Red/White Week.

This year, there were three bands that participated: Amor, Bad Racket and Middle Management.

Amor, an R&B/cover band, includes Kevon Baker (12, YPAS) on keys, Eve Williams (12, YPAS) with lead vocals, Quincy Robinson (12, YPAS) on saxophone and Fons Cervera (12, J&C) on drums.

Bad Racket, a classic rock band, is comprised of Steele Whitney (12, YPAS), Connor Davis (12, HSU), Drew Harris (12, HSU) and Zach Watson.

Middle Management, an alternative-based band, is made up by Xavier Hawpe (11, YPAS), Luke Reeves (12, MST), Scarlett Hawpe (10, YPAS) and Ethan York (12, MST).

Trevor Harry (11, HSU) talked about how Ramstock provides a sense of community.

”I like the sense of community you get by listening to school bands and hanging out with your friends and eating free popcorn,” Harry said.

The band that wins Ramstock will perform in Friday’s pep rally.
