Our Entertainment Committee is arranging three evenings of entertainment.
Thursday Talent Show
Dust off your old talents or show off the new "tricks" you've learned over the last
40 years! We'll be organizing a Class of 1980 talent show for Thursday night after dinner. If you'd like to
participate, please send an email to email@example.com, and make sure to indicate what equipment or
set-up you'll need or will be bringing.
We have some incredibly gifted artists in our class. Plan to come
and support them all.
Friday Afternoon "Battle of the Alumni Bands"
If you can get your old band back together, consider volunteering to
represent the Class of 1980 in the thirteenth annual "Battle of the Alumni Bands" concert. The goal of the
concert organizers is to have a band representing each major reunion class. Each class band gets a 20 minute
set to showcase its talents. All the big stuff: sound system, backline amps, drums, piano, etc. will be
provided. And the organizers even have a professional guitarist, bassist, pianist, and drummer standing by
to fill in for any missing band members. Past groups have included Rock, R&B, Swing, Folk, a Jazz combo,
The concert will take place on Friday afternoon between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm on the lawn at the foot of
Friday and Saturday Night Bands
We're still finalizing contracts with our bands for Friday and
Saturday nights. But our goal is to hire bands that will play the kinds of music that take us back to our
campus days. In fact, we'll be submitting all of the songs you tell us were your "Musical Ties" to the bands, so
they can create their set lists, and maybe even learn a new song or two from our list. To spare you the pain
of hearing Muskrat Love, we'll also let the bands know which songs to avoid!! Please remember to
send in those favorite (and not-so-favorite) songs!!
