Our annual holiday concert was a complete success! We had over 400 attendees raising over $9000 for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of St. Joseph County – which provides volunteer mentors to children.
We celebrated in true #DAXMAS spirit – donning turtlenecks and blazers, practicing fiscal responsibility and enjoying Crème brûlée during the setbreak. Moveable Types opened the show. Then the Daxman himself graced the concertgoers with his presence and spoke of fiscal responsibility and other Daxmas traditions before introducing Funk Harmony Park to the audience.
We started the first set with many of our greatest hits followed by two songs lead by Elliott Peck on acoustic guitar and vocals. At the end of the first set we tabulated the votes for The Bonsey Award and presented South Bend Mayor Peter Buttigieg the award for his work with the South Bend community. Pete then sat in with us on guitar for jammin rendition of Deep Elem Blues.
