Come together.  Don’t miss this unique evening to support Mercer Island School District 5-12 band programs.  The evening’s theme, “Rockin’ the Casbah,” will feature an eclectic mix of music, wine, beer, hors d’oeuvres and desserts with a Moroccan flair along with one-of-a-kind Live and Silent auction items.  Tickets for this adults only event are available in limited quantity for $75 per person.

Play together. Come experience the music of Nearly Dan, a Seattle band performing the music of 70’s legendary classic rock band, Steely Dan. Some of the heritage band’s well-known songs include: Deacon Blues, Rikki Don’t Lose That Number and Kid Charlemagne.  Nearly Dan is made up of 12 national musicians with talent spanning many genres—from rock, R&B and country to fusion, swing and jazz—and who have trained at institutions from Berklee College of Music in Boston, to University of Washington and Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. Anyone who knows the music of Steely Dan, also knows that only fabulous musicians can pull it off!

Band together.  Show your support for incredible music programming in our community as the Mercer Island School District band program serves over 700 students in grades 5 – 12 each year. Proudly non-competitive and all-inclusive, these band programs celebrate musical talent at all levels with excellent results, including the opportunity to perform and compete nationally and internationally. The Pride of the Island, our Mercer Island High School Band is 300 strong and includes one-in-four high school students!

Monies raised at this 2nd annual event will support Mercer Island Schools band programming for grades 5-12, including clinics, one-on-one support, scholarships, instrument rentals, leadership opportunities, trip support, training, community outreach and unique musical opportunities.
