Bands 4 Bands Bandfest

TNP has joined forces with Bands 4 Bands to help those less fortunate in the Bay Area. The Bandfest event being held on August 26th at Hayward Memorial Park will be a canned food drive to help the Salvation Army feed the homeless. Besides doing something that is a good cause for the community, you will be entertained by some of the East Bay's most talented musicians. This show will feature many different genres of music and will open your ears to new music. Please mark your calendars for this event and come on out to support local music and bring canned food for the Salvation Army.
