Sounds of the Harbor: benefit for Blaine food bank

By Tara Nelson

Celtic, alternative rock and blue grass bands come together on Saturday August 13, for the Sounds of the Harbor fundraiser and music festival at Marine Park Amphitheater.

The festival line-up includes 10 O’Clock Scholar, an organic folk rock band from Blaine; Thursday Night, a Custer-based blue grass jam band; Distant Second, a Bellingham Dave Matthews sound-alike band; Eagles Whistle; and also Blaine High School rock band Half Blind.

Blaine high school graduates Tiffany Oakley and Matt Barry, both class of 2005, joined forces with Blaine mayor John Liebert to form TOMBAY promotions in order to coordinate the event.

Several local businesses including T.C Trading, Border Cargo Services, Inc., Blaine Signs, Cost Cutter, Rite Aid, The Northern Light, and Blaine Podiatrics, have also offered raffle prizes.
It’s great to see so many of the local businesses pitching in and helping out,” Barry said.

Admission is free but donations of non-perishable food items will be accepted. Proceeds will go toward the Blaine Food Bank.
