Live Music Line Up – 25th Anniversary Celebration

The big party is tomorrow! We have an amazing line up for the entertainment that evening, with lots of familiar faces from the past 25 years. Here’s a little bit more about our featured artists.

Descent

“Descent” gets its name from playing 60’s baby boomer songs right through stuff our millennials listen to. Our band includes St. Joe’s dad Mark Keating on electric guitar (Mark is “The Voice of the Knights” at football games), fellow Knight Alumni dad Dan Ruble on bass guitar (married to long time Science teacher Sharon Ruble), on drums Dan’s fellow musician from St. Anthony’s Sunday choir Joe Galloway,  lead singer David Junker, with Bill Coffey (father of six St. Joe’s grads!) on acoustic guitar.
