BANDS

Wild Party

Wild Party, made up of vocalist Lincoln Kreifels, guitarist Lucas Hughes, bassist Ethan Kaufmann, and drummer Cary LaScala are still a young band, but they have already been around the block and across the pond. The band were thrust into the spotlight early in their career when they were offered a gig to support The Wombats on tour across the UK in 2010. Without label support, Wild Party seized the moment and took a DIY approach, releasing tracks and video content online, and gaining a fan base before inking a deal with indie/rock label Old Friends Records to release their debut album Phantom Pop.

Colorworks

Colorworks [kə-lər-wərks] n: Mysterious & Kinetically Playful. Colorworks is neo-psychedelic pop — a 60's boy band in 21st century Seattle. Gigging around the Northwest with a box full of jangly guitars and big harmonies, they're currently finishing their first EP entitled Joyla Red, the sound of four boys' imaginations, to be released 2015.

CHARITY

The Seafair Foundation

The Seafair Foundation, the 501(c)(3) charitable partner of the Seafair Festival, was established in 2008 to create and build opportunities for Seafair’s youth education, cultural and community engagement programs. The Foundation programs empower future leaders and connect Greater Puget Sound through unique educational and cultural experiences. The Foundation also believes it is our responsibility to help build better communities and that live events are the lifeblood of our heritage. Please help us continue the tradition excellence that has been in place since 1950.

The breadth of Seafair and the Foundation’s contributions to the Greater Puget Sound Region is truly amazing. From its inception, the Seafair Foundation has welcomed nearly 2,000 qualified students to its scholarship programs and given approximately $600,000 in scholarship funds, given the gift of boating to the intellectually disabled community, sanctioned nearly 100 cultural and community events, and shown a tradition of excellence granted to us by the Seafair Festival. However, corporate sponsorship and fundraising events cover only a part of what the Foundation needs each year to continue offering its outstanding programs. With your help the gap between the Foundation’s budget line and its actual need can be covered by your gifts.
