Finally, they're going to the Olympics.
After months of preparation and fund-raising, East Lake High School jazz members shove off Friday morning for a four-day trip to Atlanta.
The 27-member band is scheduled to leave from the high school parking lot at 9 a.m., taking with them 12 chaperones and a setup crew of 16 students. The band was selected from taped auditions to perform at parks and other venues around Atlanta, entertaining Olympic visitors through the weekend.
They are expected to return Monday.
