D-S band plays Canobie Lake Park

[ccfic caption-text format="plaintext"]

Rising Nation has been invited back for a second year in a row to perform at Canobie Lake Park in Salem, NH. The band will be performing on Thursday evening, August 18, at 8:00 p.m. on the Midway Stage, a covered open-air pavilion near the center of the park. Rising Nation was one of 20 bands that were selected out of hundreds to participate in Canobie Lake Park’s Battle of the Bands. Rising Nation will be performing a 30-minute set featuring original songs and covers of classic and alternative rock songs.

Rising Nation is a local rock band made up of students from the Dover-Sherborn Regional School District ranging in grades from 8th through 12th. Band members are Annabel Hodson-Walker, Benjamin Hodson-Walker, Eliza Martin, Charlie Mandel, Amelia Hodson-Walker, and Caroline Buehler. They have played at Canobie Lake Park, TCAN (The Center for Arts in Natick), the Middlesex Bank Grand Opening, the Sherborn Yacht Club, school events such as Chocolate Café and Jammin’ in the Red, farm events, the Sherborn Senior Center, and dance recitals.

Rising Nation plays a mixture of original songs written by several band members and a wide range of cover songs from classic and alternative rock to current popular music. The band is completely student-run and many of the members sing vocals and play several different instruments to make it more interesting for the audience. The band members found each other through a common interest in drama and rock music.

The Battle of the Bands is a judged competition. Each Thursday and Friday evening throughout the summer, a different band will perform. Area residents are encouraged to come cheer on and support Dover-Sherborn’s local rock band, Rising Nation, at Canobie Lake Park on August 18 at 8:00 p.m.
