The Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts in partnership with the city of Anacortes presents a Musical Tribute to Prince and David Bowie featuring the band Scary Monster & the Super Creeps at the Heart of Anacortes on August 27th at 5pm.

Musical Tribute to Prince & David Bowie Scary Monster & The Super Creeps (named after a David Bowie album) was hatched as a David Bowie tribute band in 2009 by lead vocalist Sean Meyer of Bellingham. The band added Prince’s Purple Rain to the repertoire in 2014 for the thirty year anniversary of the album’s release. Bobby Yost plays lead guitar, Ken Pierce on keyboards, David Wiggs on the drum throne, Walt Burkett plays bass, Jill Clark singing backup vocals. Sean and Walt are alumni of The Walrus, David and Ken played together in Luke Warm And The Moderates, Bobby Yost with So Adult.

To honor the passing of Prince, Scary Monster & the Super Creeps will be performing the album Purple Rain in its entirety and many other songs from his immaculate catalog. In addition they will be distilling down the vast repertoire of Bowie sets to their absolute favorites. It will be an evening of dedication to the two artists that have given this band life.

This show will be the Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts’ annual fund raising event. It will feature a silent auction of donated items including numerous works of art by local artists, tickets to the November 20th Paula Cole show at the Lincoln Theatre, wine, golf, ukulele, guitar signed by James Taylor, gift certificates, baskets and much more. Also, there will be an 80’s costume contest so join the fun and wear your best Prince or Bowie themed outfit!

All proceeds will be used to provide grants to artists and arts programs in Skagit County.

Rick Epting PhotoIn 2006, friends of the late Rick Epting formed the Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts and continued his legacy of supporting the Arts in Skagit County with a showcase of local talent and humor. Our mission is to help raise money that is needed for Organizations, Scholarships, and other non-profit groups, to promote and encourage live performance shows and to provide ongoing support for local artists in the community.

Rick Epting  was one of the founding members of both the Lincoln Theatre Center Foundation, the Skagit Performing Arts Council (SPAC), and appointed by the Governor to serve on the Washington State Arts Commission. He was also instrumental in the restoration campaign for the Lincoln Theatre and the planning and organization for McIntyre Hall in Mount Vernon. Rick was a proud supporter of Arts groups and organizations in Skagit County until his untimely death in August 2005.
