March 4, 2023 – at The Queen, Wilmington, DE

Tickets on sale NOW!

This is our 11th year, and for the 2023 show, we’ll be celebrating the music of 1983. Join the more than 60 local artists as they cover the top songs from that year. Voted 2019’s Best Fundraiser in the State by Delaware Today, we expect another sellout crowd for what is always one of the premier musical events of the year.  Shine A Light is a fundraiser for the Light Up the Queen Foundation which supports music education programs that serve the underprivileged youth in New Castle County.  From the proceeds of our show in March 2022, we were able to grant $30,500 of funding to three local organizations.
