The NACHO Street Band (Nationwide Children’s Hospital Orchestra made up of mostly brass and percussion) performed in Groveport’s Heritage Park on July 15. The band played songs ranging from Disney tunes to New Orleans jazz to 1970’s style funk. “If we sound good playing it, we’re going to play it,” joked band leader and tuba player Steve Poast about the band’s song selection. The 24 member band – made up of Children’s Hospital employees as well as family and friends – has performed at the Columbus Marathon, Ronald McDonald House, and at a variety of other venues. During the band’s lively performance at Heritage Park Poast told the audience, “If you feel the need to dance and groove, don’t fight it!” Pictured here is part of the Nacho Street Band’s brass section belting out a tune at the Groveport concert.
