Saturday, April 13, 7-11 p.m.

Bands & Chefs is our NEW outdoor music event on the BC Plaza presented by GRETSCHGEAR.COM on April 13, 2019 from 7:00 - 11:00 pm. The LIVE music will begin promptly at 8:00 p.m. so plan to be on time to grab some delicious food and drink before the music begins to jam! This is Benedictine’s own scaled down version of Music Midtown and definitely not a sit-down dinner!  Feel free to bring a lawn chair if you need to sit down, but we will have a few high-top tables and picnic tables spread around. Dress casually and join us for a fun night of food, music, dancing, and socializing with your friends.  

Tickets: A limited number of tickets are still available here!  Purchase your tickets in advance and avoid the lines at check in. Tickets are $75 per person and include your food, drinks, and entertainment.  Faculty and staff tickets are half-price!

Food: Several outstanding Savannah Chefs are providing an incredible selection– Kirk Blaine ’03 of Howlin’ Hound and Castaways, Bryan Gray ’03 and Brandon Mell ’03 of B Local Catering, Dee Carver ’81 and Dan Smart ’97 of Down South Sauce Company and The Prowl Truck with Chef Bret Knat.

Music: BC’s music teacher Cyril Durant will perform with Prime Real Estate first. The second band in the line-up will be “Rose Hill Serenade” an Allman Brother’s Tribute project with Jonathan Williams (The Lowcountry Crooners), John Patton ’04 (The Lowcountry Crooners), Stu Harmening (The Trainwrecks), Jeremy Hammons (The Trainwrecks), Jason Bible (The Trainwrecks), Ira Miller (The Hypnotics) and Philip Reynolds Price (The COEDS). The third and final band will be the Hypnotics with Ty Thompson, Ryan Sylvester and Ira Miller. This will be one of the last live performances by the Hypnotics, so let’s give them a big BC send-off!

Tuition Raffle: One lucky person will win $10,000 or full tuition at Benedictine for the 2019-20 year. Tickets are only $25 each or 6 for $125. Raffle tickets are available for purchase at the school or by calling Triet Bui at (912) 661-7213, Paul Farthing at (843) 597-5091, or Teresa Macbride at (912) 663-6362.
