The Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts is sponsoring a fund raising event featuring performances by Burlington-Edison High School students and local band Fantasy at The Old Edison on June 15. The event begins at 6:30.
This event will raise money for the Burlington-Edison Music Program and will feature performances by the Burlington-Edison Burlington High School Jazz Band, Drum Line and the student band Chuckanut Funk. The student performances will begin at 6:30 and Fantasy will take the stage at 8:30.
Fantasy is a local dance band that was founded by local musicians Steve Olszewski and Eric Thompson in 1975. The band toured extensively during the 70’s and 80’s up and down the west coast of the US and Canada. They specialize in playing rock favorites from the 70’s and 80’s. Exemplary vocals and musicianship shine through each performance. The current band line up is Steve Olszewski (lead guitar / lead vocals), Eric Thompson (keyboard / vocals), Dave Perkins (bass / vocals), Jan Ellingson (lead vocals, flute, percussion, guitar and keyboards), Carr Johnson (keyboards, guitar, harmonica and vocals) and Danny Hansen (drums).
The event will include an optional suggested donation as well as a raffle with numerous prizes with all the proceeds being given to the Burlington-Edison Music Program.
Come out for a night of musical fun and support the arts at the same time!
