Today is the day for All Together Now, a benefit concert to raise funds for music, art and drama in Alameda’s public schools.
The June 16 event starts at 4 p.m., at Harbor Bay Club, and it will feature the Sun Kings, a Beatles-tribute band.
Band leader Drew Harrison and local realtor Peter Fletcher came up with the idea for the first such event in 2010. Events held that year and in 2011 raised about $50,000.
“It should be an especially fun concert, if you’re looking for something to do for Dad that weekend,” said Kirk Cowan of the Harbor Bay Club.
“After all, what could be a better Father’s Day gift than an afternoon of Beatles, beer and barbeque!”
Tickets for the show start at $25, with discounts available for groups and families. The concert event will include sales of food, beer and wine, as well as a raffle with a grand prize valued at over $4,500.
