Battle of the Bands 6

The Beach Dads Club 6th Annual Battle of the Bands will be Friday, February 10 at the New Parish in Oakland. One of the best nights out of the year. Low key. High energy. Great music, makes one realize how much amazing musical talent we have in the Beach community. Nice way to hang out with some really fun folks and raise money for Beach Elementary. Doesn’t get much better.

The event: Adults 21 and older only. Tickets $25.
Best deal is to buy tickets ahead at http:bit.ly/battleofthebands6

Opening up the evening, Lucy’s Home Alone, a high school and middle school band made up of Beach alums Rachel Barton, Will and Paul Davies, Ellington Davis and Noah Rosenbaum will play a mix of soulful originals combined with classic and contemporary pop hits. Last year they brought the house down and raised the musical ante.

Then the Battle will begin when last year’s King of Padres, Brian Weiss and Tammy’s Camaro, light up the stage with a dance-worthy set of Rock, Pop, Alternative and Funk hits, b-sides and pretty much anything they think is cool from the 70’s up through today.  Next up, the Puckett Family Project, featuring Tod Puckett (Sophia, 2nd grade, Macy and Ella, 5th grade) will fire up a plugged-in, rocking mix of funk and countrified rock originals. To close the evening,Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!, a four-piece band featuring Aaron Fisher  (Wyatt, 5th Grade, Duncan 2nd, Milo, K)  will play a rousing set  rooted in an early-70’s rock sensibility, featuring songs from Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, the Meters, and more.

Call the babysitters now. If you’ve never been before, ask someone who went last year. You won’t want to miss it!

Annual Tri-School Softball Tournament — June 14, 2014

June 17, 2014 Leave a comment

On a beautiful Saturday after the last week of school, about 50 fathers from Beach, Havens, and Wildwood continued the traditional Tri-School Softball Tournament, playing 3 games at Coaches Field.

With over 100 in attendance including kids and families in the stands and on the grass cheering on their dads and their schools, local San Francisco Opera singer, Amy McKenzie, sang the national anthem for all to enjoy this favorite fundraising event.

The first game was won by Havens playing the Wildwood team and holding off a spirited comeback (7-4). The second game was Beach blanking out Wildwood (30-0). The third game was Beach beating Havens (10-3) to retain their Tri-School softball championship status!

A home-run derby saw Wildwood alumnus, Luke Heller (4), edging out Beach’s Dan Ferreira (3) and Jonathan Davis (2) and Haven’s Jeff Dorman (1).

Over $1000 was raised for the Associated Parents Club of Piedmont supporting CHIME (Citizens Highly Interested in Music Education).

Great job to all the Beach Padres who participated in the game and supported the event! (As well as all the dads from Havens and Wildwood!)
