Rock Band for Charity

  1. Updates

It goes without saying that taking a group of people – people whose office is a school playground – to a bar event will result in an absolutely incredible time. Playworks SF hosted a fantastic party at the Red Devil Lounge on October 6th, with live music by DJ Shindog and the 80s cover band, Notorious. Playworks, deciding not to exclude anyone, invited the community to dance and party with the staff for only $15 a ticket. All proceeds from these sales went to SF Playworks programming.Though things started off a bit slow, with people trickling in by twos and threes, the band struck up and an LED hula hoop joined the mix. Soon, everyone had to have a try. Even the lead singer jumped off the stage to have a go at the glowing hoop. He shortly discovered that hula hooping and singing into a microphone can be a very difficult task! Everyone was dancing, drinking, and singing as loud as they could along with Notorious. Even the more shy individuals hiding in the sidelines joined in and were swept up in the surge of inclusive fun that is the Playworks way.
