Benefiting the Chesapeake Bay Foundation for the past 13 years, Bands in the Sand 2019 will rock Annapolis once again. Scheduled for Saturday, June 8, 2019, this year’s version is shaping up to be the most entertaining yet.
Bands in the Sand (BITS) was founded by Dick Franyo, the founder and owner of the Boatyard Bar & Grill and a Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) trustee. This musical event has not only become a cherished Annapolis tradition, it has also netted nearly $2 million in proceeds to support the CBF’s informational and environmental efforts for defending the Chesapeake Bay.
Chesapeake Bay Foundation
The Chesapeake Bay is America’s largest estuary, and it is where more than 17 million people and a great variety of wildlife make their home. The CBF is committed to restoring and preserving the Chesapeake Bay region’s environmental health. Proceeds raised from Bands in the Sand will help fund school programs, restoration activities, and legislative initiatives that will influence federal and state environmental policies.
Food & Entertainment
Visitors to Annapolis and residents alike are welcome to attend Bands in the Sand for an enjoyable night on the seashore in support of the Chesapeake Bay. Live music, refreshments, and delicious grilled food will be available at this event.
2019’s musical headliners will be Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Misspent Youth, and Pressing Strings. For more band information: BITS 2019 Bands
