January 28, 2014
KWAJALEIN ATOLL, Republic of the Marshall Islands -- The Quality of Life committee coordinated for the band Prospect Hill to rock the islands.
The band, expecting its fourth album to be released Aug. 28, performed three shows on Kwajalein and Roi Namur from Jan. 17-20.
Jan. 17, Prospect Hill performed on Roi Namur for 40 people. Back on Kwajalein, the band performed Jan. 19 for about 200 people at the Veterans Hall American Legion Post #44 and Jan. 21 for seventh through 12th grade students at Kwajalein Junior/Senior High School.
"Performing tonight for all the kids at the high school on Kwajalein Island was amazing! You guys were great! Thanks for making our time out here amazing!" the band posted to their Facebook page following the high school show.
While on the island, the band also conducted a music writing workshop for about 30 students at the teen center.
On their final day on the island, the band met with U.S. Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll commander, Col. Nestor Sadler.
"The band was well received by all residents of Kwajalein especially the high school students, who were really excited about having the opportunity to personally meet with the members of the band," Sadler said. "They are extremely humble young men; the community was truly thankful to have them perform here on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur."
Prospect Hill's discography consists of "Prospect Hill," "Out of the Ashes," and "For the Lovers, the Haters and the Dead." Their new album is titled "Impact."
The band was sponsored by the Quality of Life committee. In March, the committee is hosting the Josh Logan Trio. Logan was one of the 12 finalists on the last season of NBC's The Voice.
