Last Call for Band Together Tickets!

Bandtogether_2014You definitely won’t want to miss the party of the year…Band Together is happening THIS SATURDAY! Hurry and get your tickets here before it sells out. GET TICKETS

Band Together is a celebration of our incredible Mercer Island Band program and the wonderful community that support it. In it’s second year, Band Together is a about good music, good food and good fun. A grand mix of parents, student alumni, instructors and band supporters–all there to support and applaud our ‘pride of the Island’ makes this event unlike any you’ve attended.

This year we’ll raise the roof with a Seattle band with a cult following – Nearly Dan. There are many cover bands out there imitating original bands, but rarely is it done with the accuracy and precision that Nearly Dan does for the music of Steely Dan. Twelve world class musicians replicate the Steely Dan sound–note for note, lick for lick–so well you can’t believe it’s not the original. Nearly Dan will have you dancing in the aisles before the night is out. Nearly Dan band members have performed with greats such as Ray Charles, George Benson, Diane Schuur, Lou Rawls, Basia, Huey Lewis, Tower Of Power, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Tito Puente, Natalie Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., Gladys Knight, Julio Iglesias, Roberta Flack, and many others.

And of course we’ll have our unique arts-oriented Auction once again. Where else can you pick up PRICELESS items such as a musical workshop with world-class musicians Laura and Allen Vizzutti, a personal studio tour by Emmy-award winner Hummie Mann, incredible group events, section baskets, tickets and more! Preview the full list in the newly minted 2015 Auction Catalog.

But there’s more…this year, we’ll spice things up with a Moroccan Flair! We’ll be ‘Rockin the Casbah’ with wine, beer and Hors d’oeuvres. Remember, this is an adults only event. Get your tickets today!
