  Band Blitz  

Band Blitz was a BLAST!
The 15th Annual Band Blitz was held on March 27-28th at the Cumberland Outdoor Club. The two-day event was a huge success, raising over $13,000 for Friends Aware and Arc of Frederick County to help fund unmet needs for individuals who receive services. Funds have assisted with the purchase of adaptive equipment, training materials, clothing, shoes, and dental work over the past several years. Event coordinators Tim Haines, Arc of Frederick County, and Kimberly Lattea, Friends Aware, have gone above and beyond to make the Blitz a huge success! Thanks to our staff volunteers: Stephanie Parks, Carol Ketterman, Libi Williams-Ziler, Nancy Weisenmiller, Brenda Hayhurst, Al McDonald, Debbie Oates, Jeannie & Ronnie Smith, Matt Smith, Lea Scarpelli, Lois Russell, Sue Buehler, Rhonda Blubaugh, and Adam Lazarus. Special thanks to the evening’s emcee, Gary Wolz, and all of the band members and FAI staff who volunteered. And thanks to the staff members who performed with their bands: Harley Kuhn, Jennifer Brown, and Eric Breighner. Thanks to our supporting partners WCBC, GO I06, Personal Best, Jim House, and the Cumberland Outdoor Club.

Thanks to the musicians who donate their time and talents to make this event a success! This year’s lineup included: Public Menace, Jaded, Cody Calp Band, Janice Ray Band, Simon Sez, The Travis Minnick Band, Uncle Fester, Greg and Randy, Cramer Brothers & Tim Haines, Heart Gravy, Sonic Mule, Shadow Burn, So Low, Revv, City Limits, Strangerz, The Limit, Lady Invidia, Anger Box, and Surrender Dorothy.
