Friday, December 22nd, 8pm
A Special Vashon Events presentation:
Will Sing For Vashon
A benefit for our Island Nonprofits
Vashon Events is once again partnering with the Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi to host a showcase of holiday songs to benefit Island Nonprofits this holiday season. The Fifth Annual Will Sing for Vashon will take place on Friday, December 22nd beginning at 8pm. The event is always an open call for Vashon Island musicians to perform a holiday song. In the past over 25 acts perform through the night and this year is no exception.
As we did last year, Vashon Events is opening the event up to allow audience members to donate money to any nonprofit organization they choose by specifying the name of the nonprofit on envelopes that will be distributed. This way, all the nonprofits on the island can join in the fun, and benefit from the extraordinary night of song and community.
The event is produced by Pete Welch and Allison Shirk of Vashon Events with Allison emceeing the night. It will be fun, festive and for a great cause. This is yet another in a series of many special themed shows that will be produced by Vashon Events in the coming year.
If you’d like to sign up to perform at this show, here is the link for that: http://www.vashonevents.com/for-musicians/#/ve-specialevents/
This year, we are going to try to make this more of an acoustic atmosphere, with solo, duo and trio acts. We’re going to try to stay away from electric guitars, drum kits, etc. A more intimate setting.
