“The experience is going to be different than previous homecomings because you’re going to be in a room 50s themed, with current music playing. Our theme is retro, so we have like big cups, like milkshake cups. They say soda pop on them. We have the guitar from last year but it looks like an old fender now. Yesterday we used a blowtorch to make record bowls, we are also using some of the band decorations from last year. We have like checkerboard stuff and silhouettes dancing, and we are going to play hairspray on a wall like we did last year. We also have an old tv and picture frames.” – Abby Esau 12
