Last Thursday we kicked off a whole weekend of shows starting at The Triple Door in support of Arts Corps, the largest non-profit arts educator in the Seattle area. Over the course of the night, Arts Corps was able to raise over $140,000 to continue providing arts and music education to more than 2,500 youth each year.

We’re honored to have been asked to close an amazing night of performances by the youth and their teaching artists, including breakdancing by the Vicious Puppies Crew led by Jerome Aparis of Massive Monkees, Washington Middle School’s Drumline led by Aaron Walker-Loud of Big World Breaks, and a live performance by Wild Syde, a new pop rock band fresh out of West Seattle High School produced by Kore Ionz very own Daniel Pak.

From beginning to end, The Triple Door was alive with a roaring wave of cheering and applause. To watch the youth express their artistic creativity on a stage of such grand scale was the ultimate inspiration for everyone who attended…including Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn AND Dave Matthews!!!
