Desolation Sound Kicks Off Theater’s Outdoor Fairgrounds Concert Series June 25
From San Juan Community Theatre
After a long year of digital programming, and canceled shows, San Juan Community Theatre is producing a live and in-person season at the San Juan County Fairgrounds featuring music and theater performances June 25 through Aug. 28.
The season will kick off with local alt-rock bank, Desolation Sound 7 p.m. Friday, June 25.
Bring your picnic blankets and lawn chairs to this opening performance of our pay-what-you-can, outdoor summer season. Beer and wine will be available for purchase, and folks are welcome to bring their own food.
Darvis Taylor, Scott Sluis, Tom Henry, and Daniel Day are the Friday Harbor musicians behind alternative rock band Desolation Sound.
The band says that the island way of life manifests itself in the music.
“I’m fascinated with that beautiful place where the Salish Sea meets the shore of our island. It’s a mysterious, shifting boundary and I often draw deeper meanings from my experiences there” says Daniel, the band’s primary lyricist.
July 1-3 will continue with a Broadway Revue Concert featuring choreographed musical numbers from “GREASE,” “Guys and Dolls,” “Les Miserables” and “A Chorus Line.”
The rest of the summer lineup includes live music from local and traveling bands, kids theater camp performances, and the San Juan Community Theater’s Playwrights Festival.
