Let’s Shine A Light On ’68!

The annual Shine A Light On The Queen concert is a musical spectacle that needs to be seen to be truly heard. Over 60 local musicians come together on one stage, swapping out members to play the hits of whatever theme strikes our fancy! This “Musical Chairs” approach to playing the stage generates thousands of dollars in donations to The Light Up The Queen Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to preserving the Queen Theater in Wilmington, DE, and to preserving arts education for children in our community.


On Saturday, March 3, 2018, Get Ready to Shine A Light On ’68

Shine A Light On 1968 – A celebration of the music of 1968, performed by a revolving line up of over 60 local musicians.  This is not your cousin’s cover band…this is a concert experience, with full visual spectacle and an immersive vibe.  It is the biggest party of the year!
