Chis Eger Band are HEATING UP this summer with a brand new CD!

Skagit County's hottest young artist, Chris Eger, is coming to this intimate Anacortes outdoor venue and bringing the full band with the Alimony Horns. If you've never heard Chris with the full band, you're in for a treat.

Chris is one of the busiest guitar slingers in the Skagit Valley and has just returned from Nashville where country music star Eric Heatherly produced Chris' second CD release. His recent Kickstarter bid helped get him to Music City to work on his latest project. Chris' power trio band is made up of his dad Randy on the bass and renowned Bellingham drummer Mark Clark. For this show he'll be bringing his big band which include keyboards and horns.

Please come out and support the arts and enjoy a high energy show from a local band!

Rick Epting PhotoIn 2006, friends of the late Rick Epting formed the Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts and continued his legacy of supporting the Arts in Skagit County with a showcase of local talent and humor. Our mission is to help raise money that is needed for Organizations, Scholarships, and other non-profit groups, to promote and encourage live performance shows and to provide ongoing support for local artists in the community.

Rick Epting  was one of the founding members of both the Lincoln Theatre Center Foundation, the Skagit Performing Arts Council (SPAC), and appointed by the Governor to serve on the Washington State Arts Commission. He was also instrumental in the restoration campaign for the Lincoln Theatre and the planning and organization for McIntyre Hall in Mount Vernon. Rick was a proud supporter of Arts groups and organizations in Skagit County until his untimely death in August 2005.
