The Troublemakers is a 3-piece pre-teen band. Jack Caines has been playing drums and piano since age 6. He has performed in local musical festivals, musical theatre, and has taken lessons at Gary Bennett Music and Graham Academy. Molly MacDonnel has taken lessons in vocals, bass guitar, piano, and musical theatre. She has been part of festivals, dramatic performances, and musical theatre. Parker Lushman enjoys performing for his classmates at school and during assemblies and dances. His passion for learning and performing shines through his performances and he thoroughly enjoys his weekly lessons with Mr. Caines. The Troublemakers have been performing for about a year, and their songs consist mostly of rock covers. They tend to go for classic rock songs despite their young ages! They are currently getting into experimentation with original songs, and this festival will be a motivator for them to write something for a particular theme.
