Today and everyday is a great day to think about and be thankful for Peace; and Peace Code Records is promoting Peace again this Summer. You can join them by being a participant in the 29th Annual Seattle Peace concert on August 9th at Gas Works Park from 12pm to 6pm. Peace Code Records in conjunction with the Seattle Peace organization seapeace.org brings the best of the Northwest talents and peaceful speakers together at the Lake Union Stage in Gasworks park for a free concert.

Seattle Peace Concerts' free summer park concert series, coordinated by Don Glenn since the early 80s, feature well established musicians and entertainers as well as some of the Northwest's best new artists. Musical styles reflect the diverse contemporary music scene here in the pacific northwest and beyond! - Rock, Pop, Reggae, R&B, Blues, Zydeco, Drum Groups, Choirs, Folk, World Beat, Jazz, and some stuff that defies labeling. These are family events. No alcohol!

Admission is free, however they encourage folks to bring food bank donations for Northwest Harvest and please contribute what you can when "The Bucket" comes around to help them cover expenses. Another way to support these events, and take home some of the best music performed at these events, is to purchase SPC Compilation Albums.

Seattle Peace Concerts and an amazing range of mostly local musicians and sponsors have kept free music going in the Seattle Parks. An attempt was made in the early eighties to ban Amplified Music, i.e. "Rock n' Roll", from the Seattle Parks because of the negative impact some of the events held at that time had on the parks and on the general community. Reason prevailed! For the past 28 years, to the credit of kind Seattle folk, they have maintained fantastic relations with their City Government, and the Seattle community in general, and now the parks look as good or better after these amazing concerts than before.

Good for Seattle! Good for the music! Good for Peace!
