The Nugget

Chris Shields
Hey, I'm Chris! I'm a junior at Helena High. I'm in Symphonic Winds, Jazz band, and Wind Symphony; I also participate in most pep band events. If you're enrolled in the band program, chances are you know who I am, or at least recognize me as that one ginger hippie kid in the sax section. I wish I could say I have a life outside of music, but sadly that is not the truth. I play bass guitar in a local Helena band called Spank, and I also jam with multiple other bands around the area on occasion (usually when their bassist is out of town). Over the summer I played various gigs around Helena and Clancy and made a decent amount of dough off that. My pride and joy is my Yamaha tenor saxophone named Sassy, which I am in the process of paying off.

I love hanging out with friends and goofing off every chance I get. I'm also a huge cinephile and am always down to watch a good movie. My favorite of all time is the original Ghostbusters film.

I joined newspaper because I enjoy writing and thought this was probably the most effective way of getting my name out there as an author. In the future, I hope to pursue a music career and am thinking of attending the University of Montana. If a music career doesn't work out, my backup plan is to ride the rails like a hobo and play my saxophone for nickels.
