Brought to you by Vashon Events

It’s our first fundraiser showcase of the year and we are thrilled to host it at the Open Space for Arts & Community! Enjoy island musicians and bands as they perform songs of the Beatles. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. We’ve outgrown the Red Bicycle and will be doing our showcases in the Grand Hall at the Open Space to open it up to a larger audience!

Vashon Events will bring the house down at The Open Space for Arts & Community on Friday, June 21st with the return of one of their Showcase Events featuring the jaw-dropping, inspiring, and sometimes hilarious performances of local musicians. This June, the showcase will feature all songs of the beloved band, the Beatles.

Get there early for a good seat, doors are at 6:00pm. Mingle with friends before the show, then musicians will take the stage as solo, duo, or ensemble performers to interpret one Beatles song. Throughout the evening, 12-15 songs will be performed, each by a different act. Together, the performances create an unforgettable journey of experiencing an immense variety of Island musicianship and interpretations of the Beatles’ library of works.

The event is a fundraiser to support Vashon Events, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire and connect the community by promoting and producing extraordinary music experiences and supporting musicians by providing access to instruments, education, resources, and opportunities for paid performances. We would love your support by coming to the show and enjoying the music!

Do YOU want to perform at this showcase? We want you to as well! Since we’ve had so many requests to perform at these events in the past, this will be a little different from previous showcases as instead of it being a “sign up” event, performances will be via an application process only. We will also limit it to only 12-15 acts in the show so that it doesn’t run too long. Click here for the link that explains it all. 

These events are hugely popular, so plan to arrive early to get a seat.

This Beatles Showcase is sponsored by Sue Carette, AJ’s Espresso and Rock Island Pizza. Thank you all for your support.
