Words from the guitarist Band Member: “The day of the ‘Welcoming to the Newbies’ was filled with lots of emotion. We were all anxious to see the peoples reaction; we knew they would like the song. In just a week and a half we had prepared the song, cloths and everything, without forgetting that we were at school and our academic responsibilities could not be left behind. To me, nervousness was eating me up, but there was no problem. We had a plan, simple and effective, which I hoped would always be our guide. The plan was that no matter what happens, we wouldn’t stop, that is unless we haven’t tuned our instruments yet. Even though some minor dificulties were presented, the show went on, and the best of all, everyone liked it.”

Thank you HeadLine, for being with you. Gracias headline, por estar con ustedes,
with love and affection,
Justin Rodriguez

Before the great Debut, September 4, 2008

Justin Fixing the Bass

Fun Fact: before the great debut, Aida's electric bass volume knob damaged. We proceeded to fix it by taking off the white pick guard covering the bass. Justin found the problem and fixed it. Moments later he offered to also fix the input jack. When he twisted the metal plate he ended up braking it. His face was filled with shock and couldn't say a word. He could not believe what he had done to Aida's bass. When she looked at him, she knew that whatever it was, our trusty friend black tape could fix it, and everything went well.

Ideas and Dreams, Summer 2008


Before beginning the school year, I began the talent search. Later Justin had came up with a logo. Then during the first week of school the name of the band was chosen by vote. The Croemites Band is composed by: Justin Rodriguez with the electric guitar, Esteban Januel playing percussion, Yesenia, Jennifer Lee y Jennifer Cotto being the lead singer and Aida Yoguely at the electric bass. Our goal is to rock at school activities and pump up the parties playing mostly Latin and Punk rock.
