Gig Harbor ‘Bands Together’ to Support Small Businesses through Virtual Concerts

Flock of BeaglesThe Greater Gig Harbor Foundation, the City of Gig Harbor, Uptown Gig Harbor and local musicians have teamed up to support local businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Starting July 19, you can livestream virtual musical performances on Friday a part of Band Together: Small Business Relief Concert Series, a communitywide relief effort fueled by a coalition of individuals, businesses, public officials, musicians and nonprofit organizations from the greater Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula community.

The goal of the virtual series is to bring attention to the community’s needs and spirit and help all find a way to give back. The series, which will be broadcast live on Fridays from 6 to 8 p.m. on Twitch and Facebook, is planned to run through Oct. 2​

The current musician lineup is as follows (with more artists to be announced later):

  • July 17: Kristen Marlo
  • July 24: Northwest Chill
  • August 7: Flock of Beagles
  • August 14: Budapest West
  • August 21: RoyaLux

Though donation-based, Band Together concerts are free to all. Your donation to the Band Together Fund, part of the Peninsula COVID-19 Community Emergency Relief Fund, will help to provide grants to locally owned small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.​

Hosted by the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation, the Peninsula Community COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund (CERF) was set up to provide flexible resources to organizations working across the Key and Gig Harbor peninsula communities who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus outbreak and the resulting economic consequences. All of all donations go directly to relief efforts in the community.

Band Together donations will go toward the CERF: Band Together Fund and be disbursed to chosen businesses in the Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula communities. Businesses and organizations can apply for grants through July 12. Visit for details.
