The Shepard High School band has been invited to take part in a commercial being shot at Toyota Park on Friday. There will be a “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” feel to the commercial.
“From what I have been told, the commercial is a parody on the Ferris Bueller parade scene with Chicago Fire player Mike Magee on a parade float and we would be the band playing “Twist and Shout.’ ’’ Band Director Chris Pitlik said. “This will be a nationally run TV commercial for MLS and the Fire. It will also be played as part of the advertising within the park on the big screen TV.’’
The band is pictured here at a Stanley Cup event in July.
