The event will include performances by Interstate 55 (pictured), Reflections, Faces with Shoes, the Blazers, Bruce Barham, and Eddie Harrison. There will also be a special appearance by Sam the Sham of "Wooly Bully" fame.
Attendees can head downstairs to view the Annie Leibovitz photography exhibit. There will also be a screening in the Brooks' auditorium of Jeff Bailey and Willy Bearden's Playing for a Piece of the Door: A History of Garage and Frat Bands in Memphis 1960-1975, which inspired the first Garage Band Reunion in 2004 after it aired on WKNO.
Vintage costumes are encouraged, and there will be a costume contest, a silent auction, and door prizes. Hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar will provide the energy to dance the night away.
Tickets are $50, with proceeds benefiting the Alzheimer's Day Services of Memphis' Ricky Huddleston Memorial Scholarship Fund. ADS is a nonprofit organization that offers therapeutic care, education, and support for Alzheimer's patients and their families. Because the services cost $30 per day, donations are crucial to help families pay for the care they need.
Garage Band Reunion, Saturday, August 5, 7-11 p.m., Brooks Museum of Art. For tickets or more information, call 372-4585.
