D1 Battle of the Family Bands

Dear EVCS Family,

I really hope you’ll join us for what is guaranteed to be a memorable event. This Sunday marks the first (hopefully annual) District 1 Battle of the Family Bands at the world famous Bowery Ballroom.

There will be four schools participating in the event: The Earth School, PS 110, Orchard Collegiate Academy, and of course EVCS. We have a fantastic MC named Emily Panic (former touring member of bands Foxygen and Phenomenal Handclap band, as well as the host of Max Fish’s Sunday Roast Comedy nights), and we will have a panel of celebrity judges, TBA. The winning band will get to take home a fabulous trophy and will have District 1 bragging rights – both of which I want desperately.

The EVCS Family Band has been rehearsing and I think we have a real shot at D1 glory. The band is made up of parents Martha Hornthal, Cresta Kruger, Steve Shiffman, Brad Worrell, Kevin Colden, James Askew, PT Walkley, and Kelland Thomas, music teacher Terry Campbell, and yours truly. Come support us!

Here are the details:

Sunday, March 4, 2018
The Bowery Ballroom: 6 Delancey Street
Doors: 4pm / Show 4:30pm -7:30pm
Tickets: $20
Adults Only (21+)

You can buy tickets from James in the yard (cash only), at the venue, or with PayPal here.

We realize that 4:30 is kind of a lame time for a rock show, but Sunday night also happens to be the Oscars, and we want to make sure everyone is home in time to catch the red carpet action. And please note that this event is just for the grown ups.

The Battle of the Family Bands is a fund raiser for all of the schools involved, but more importantly it is a community building event intended to build bridges between schools in our District. And it’s going to be really fun(ny). I hope to see you there!
