Estoppelgängers was breathed into life by Latham & Watkins LLP when mother melody and daddy rhythm came together in a glorious moment of musical ecstasy and gave unto the world a new sound – the sound of whimsical galumphing.  Hailing from the North, West, South, and Silver Spring, the members of Estoppelgängers have been jamming out since last Tuesday when they converged on the corner of F and 11th, NW with a song in their hearts and a pep in their step.  Displaying virtuosic gifts on the cello, English horn, harpsichord, and hammer dulcimer, this band can rock in any genre, but prefers to limit its seemingly endless talent to Marilyn Manson and Taylor Swift covers.  Estoppelgängers would like to thank their fans and let them all know that the band has always and will continue to dedicate every song to “keeping one’s professional options open.”

The confluence of international trade, intellectual property, energy and environmental resources led to a band known as The Perks from Perkins Coie LLP.  The Perks are a combination so compelling that it boggles the mind why they have yet to release an album.

In their day jobs, the members of The Perks can be seen in meetings and teleconferences, often taking notes and working on computers.  Their appearance at Banding Together 2014, however, will be a bit different, but promises to be even more exciting.

They come on Thursday, June 26th from far and wide, including Hollywood, California; Potomac; McLean; Olney; the People’s Republic of China; and Alexandria.  The Perks wish to thank everyone for their support and patience, and most of all their large and frequent donations to Gifts for the Homeless.

Brought to you by Walsh, Colucci, Lubeley, Emrich & Walsh with Donatelli & Klein, we present Larry and the Land Lawyers, the band that puts more cut in your strut, more glide in your stride, more cruise in blues and more sock in your rock…

Please make sure to head over to their Banding Together ’13 Advance Voting Page!  By “voting” for your chosen band with a donation to Gifts for the Homeless, you are both advancing the band’s quest to become D.C.’s Top Law Firm Band,” but also funding the purchase of essential clothing and winter items for distribution through the shelter system in Metropolitan Washington.  Gifts for the Homeless thanks you from the bottom of our hearts for your support and hopes to see you in person at our event.

You toil day in and day out, generating heaps of a magical currency known to outsiders only by the mystical name of “billables.” Your cases are the most important sagas since the fall of the Roman Empire.  Your clients are divine royalty whose every whim must be sated at any cost.  Your competitors lurk in every shadow, waiting for the right moment to plunder your hard-fought treasure and turn your city of gold to a shambles.

Beleaguered brethren (and suffering sisterhood), it is high time for a healthy dose of Rock & Roll Reality.  And it can be yours at Gifts for the Homeless’ 15th annual Banding Together.

Enter Cooley’s and McKenna, Long and Aldridge’s PRINCESS, four middle aged men who refuse to let the shackles of fantasy land (mortgages, dependents, law school loans, and lengthy rap sheets) interfere with what is real and true: rock and roll will never die.  Join PRINCESS as they bathe your cohort in mellifluous, cleansing tones to refresh man, woman and child with a sobering yet uplifting dose of what it really means to live.  PRINCESS does so in homage to another reality–those of their fellow DC-ers who live without a place to call home–and in the context of Banding Together, a “battle” with other bands (a.k.a. pretenders). 

Every vote you cast in this battle is only $1 and you can vote as much as you like; 100% of every dollar purchases clothing for DC’s homeless population through Gifts for The Homeless.  For the sake of all that is–well, all that is, period–come to BT ’14, vote PRINCESS, and vote often. Viva le PRINCESS!  The band is so beloved that WTOP did on a piece on it last year — check it out right over here.
