PMC Check Presentation Gala - The night's musical performances

For those attending the SOLD OUT PMC Check Presentation Gala being held at America's Most Beloved Ballpark, Fenway Park, on November 8, 2014; along with the announcement of the gift to Dana-Farber Cancer Institue, a tremendous venue, delicious food by celebrity chefs Jody Adams and Ming Tsai you are in for quite a treat when it comes to the music for the night!

Throughout the night at different times and different locations you will be hearing, singing along with and dancing to:

EYE 2 EYE - An engaging 8 member ensemble that combines talent, professionalism, and experience that ranges from small clubs to International tours. Their mixes of R&B, Motown, Top 40, Jazz, Calypso, Reggae, and Classic Hits keep people dancing all night long. 

American Young - Country Artists Jon Stone and Kristy Osmunson form the new country duo American Young.

12:01 Blues Band - One of the most popular bands on Boston's North Shore. Their classic sound and fun loving stage presence are key to their success. While the Chicago style blues of Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Little Walter is at the heart of their sound, other influences abound. 12:01 touches all the bases, in their own unique way, resulting in a captivating an thoroughly enjoyable evening of great music.

Rachel Gawell Quartet - Cellist Rachel Gawell is a bold performer with a gutsy approach to her instrument. Trained classically alongside today's top-tier string players, she has a passion and natural instinct for challenging musical environments. From rock bands to chamber music ensembles to experimental noise music, Gawell's playing distinguishes itself by pairing a rigorous conservatory skillset with enthusiasm for expanding what is possibile on the cello.

The Harvard Opportunes - Harvard’s first full-fledged mixed a cappella ensemble now known as the Harvard Opportunes. Over the years the Opportunes have won widespread acclaim for their intricate six-to-eight-part harmonies as well as for their stage presence and sense of humor. 

Irish American Police Officers of Massachusetts Pipe & Drum Band - Founded in 2001, the I.A.P.O.A Pipes & Drums also operates as a not for profit organization. In our short time of operation, we have been privileged to participate in ceremonies of fallen Law Enforcement officers, numerous police academy graduations, and several events to support our troops and veterans. The band is proud of our Irish heritage, and we truly enjoy performing in parades and other civic venues. We will always be eager to learn and promote our culture by continuing to add to our repetoire of traditional Irish tunes and American favorites.
