Live Music at the Classic Car Show:
10am-noon: An all-female vintage vocal trio, inspired by The Andrews Sisters, The Memphis Belles will charm you with their sweet harmonies and lovable personalities. These "Belles" sing and dance to iconic music that brings excitement to those who have loved it for years, as well as those who will experience it for the first time! Noon-2pm: Seattle-based songwriter, Billy Brandt, is an alley cat singer and steel-toed storyteller. Standing as the steam rises from the street’s sewer grate, this squinting-eyed, herringbone newsboy cap-wearing lyricist reports on what he sees: a melancholy and malleable city with bents equally toward invention and woebegone worries.
LEO was born in 1988 out of the need of mothers of young adults with developmental disabilities. As their children were leaving the safety net of the Issaquah school district, there was very little to look forward to in the way of activities and services in the community. These women were determined that their children would live as “normal” a life as possible. They had a dream of employment, a social network with friends, and independent living for their children.
