Seems like warmer weather has finally hit Maryland and I'm loving
it. I actually got burnt to a crisp last weekend during the Blush Cancer Awareness Music & Arts Festival at the Whiskey
in Annapolis. In addition to Pretty Big Deal playing,
there were dozens of other bands and performers volunteering their time and talents
to help raise money for the fight against cancer. I managed to take a little
video of one of my favorite local bands, THE
SHAWN OWEN BAND (SOB) - Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iektd58LiE
So, how about some more full band shows (all original music) that
support local charities?! OK! You got it!
THIS SUNDAY 4/21, 12pm - 6pm at Stan & Joe's
on West Street in Annapolis it's BEERS & BANDS - part of the
first Annual Annapolis Beer Week celebration. 5 Bands including:
PRETTY BIG DEAL
SHAWN OWEN BAND (SOB)
25 Craft Brews, food, face painting,
henna tattoos, and FUN! -All taking place OUTSIDE in Stan & Joe's parking lot.
A $10 wrist band will get you in to enjoy the music and the brew! A
portion of the proceeds will go toward a number of fine local charities.

SATURDAY, 5/4, 11am - 10pm at The
Naptown barBAYq Barbeque Contest & Music Festival. We're playing
the awesome Valley Stage at 1pm and, again, there are TONS of other bands on THREE
stages. Tickets are $10 and kids under 12 are FREE (by the way, they have
an AWESOME kids play area to keep the young'ns occupied). Again,
a portion of the proceeds will go to a number of fine local charities.
