Come together for the Kirkland Performance Center (KPC) on Friday, February 24th as they host a Beatles-themed Benefit celebration, followed by an outstanding performance from the premier Beatles tribute band and Kirkland favorite, Creme Tangerine. Join KPC for the pre-concert festivities held in the lobby as guests enjoy a champagne bar and relish in appetizers, with Beatles themed activities to take part in. Afterward, Creme Tangerine will perform The Beatles’ masterpiece Abbey Road in its entirety – a performance that has been thrilling local audiences for over a decade. Not only is this event a social highlight of KPC’s performance season, but proceeds from the night will support the 2016-17 presented season along with educational programming.
Hailing from Kirkland, Washington, Creme Tangerine is a local Beatles tribute band and community favorite. The band performs for thousands each year and creates a dynamic live music experience filled with energy, fun and spontaneity – thrilling audiences with its unique renditions of classic Beatles’ hits and other rock/pop classics. They are not only in high demand by top tier clients and venues but are the preferred performers for electric and engaging events. Creme Tangerine’s drummer, Jeff Lockhart, is also KPC’s Executive Director. Creme Tangerine is honored to support the mission of KPC by performing Abbey Road at the Come Together event.
KPC provides cultural enrichment for the Eastside community, and is proud that the theater is a gathering place for individuals to come together and enjoy the performing arts and a variety of diverse events. Proceeds from KPC’s Come Together Benefit will support the continued efforts to enrich the surrounding community with events of entertainment, educational, and cultural value but will help to sustain the organization for seasons to come. Since opening in 1998, over 800,000 patrons have walked through KPC’s doors; and all of those patrons have been essential to KPC’s success.
Come Together: A Benefit for KPC is a night to celebrate, commemorate, and most importantly, enjoy KPC. Ticket sales will benefit KPC’s upcoming seasons and ensure the organization continues to bring valuable events to the Kirkland community.
