The Petersen family band will be the featured group for PC band’s Bluegrass and BBQ fundraiser on December 3 from 6-8 PM at PCHS. The fundraiser will help with costs for the PCHS Band Trip to the Dordt Band Festival in May of 2017. General admission to the Bluegrass and BBQ event is $25, VIP admission is $50, and admission is $10 for band students.

A pre-concert meal will include pulled-pork sandwiches, chips, coleslaw, raspberry fluff, and brownie sundae, which is included in the price of admission. According to band director Shannon Dykstra, the Petersen family is known for their funny and talented music. “The Petersen’s are a Christian family bluegrass band who openly share their faith and how it has shaped their lives. They’re also an awesome bluegrass band and fun group!” said Dykstra. Questions about about the fundraiser can be sent to
