Tuesday, August 8, 2017

On August 26, at 6:00 p.m., Lincoln-Way Marching Band (LWMB) will be hosting Community Night with Elvis at Lincoln-Way West.

In addition to the debut of the band’s competitive show “Bend, Twist and Turn”, Nick Miller, an award winning Elvis impersonator from Joliet, IL will be entertaining guests with his “Keeping the King Alive” set, along with posing for photos with the crowd.

Community Night will also hold raffles and host a silent auction, which will include items such as a one night deluxe stay for two at The Peabody in Memphis, TN. The Peabody is listed on the National Register of Historic places because of its charm, elegance, gracious hospitality and world-famous five resident ducks, who march daily to and from the lobby fountain. Also available for auction will be a signed photo of Chicago White Sox shortstop, Tim Anderson, and a Chicago Bears autographed photo.

“This is our second annual Community Night for the LWMB. This is a great event for all ages. We are very excited to debut the new competitive show for the community, who have been extremely supportive of these hard-working students,” said Kim Hansen, LWMB Sponsor.

Admission is free for all who wish to attend, meals will be offered for $5.00 each. They include a choice of a slice of Giordano’s pizza with drink or Culver’s Chicken Fingers with drink.

"We are looking forward to this opportunity for the LWMB students to perform for our wonderful administration, music booster organizations, community, and families. The students have been making tremendous progress this summer, and we hope to have a large audience present for our first community performance of our 2017 show, "Bend, Twist, & Turn." Come and join us for what will surely be a wonderful evening," said LWMB Director Chris Mroczek.

All proceeds from Community Night will fund supplies, equipment, meals, travel, and repairs for equipment and instruments. Those interested in providing monetary donations and/or items for the silent auction should contact Kim Hansen (lwmsponsorship@gmail.com).
