2019 Walk details coming soon! For now, check out the cool activities from last year.

Live Music by The Pietasters

The seed was planted in 1990. A bunch of friends started a band with no pretensions: the idea was to make music for house parties, not to make a career out of music. These guys and a girl grew up in and around Washington, D.C. The scene was small and all the Punks, Skins, and Mods intermixed in those days. You were as likely to see a Mod at a Scream show as you were to see a Punk at a Toasters show. This varied influence is what informed the covers that the Pietasters played and the originals they wrote trying to emulate their favorite bands.

From Two-Tone Ska, to Jamaican crooners like Alton Ellis, to Stax, Motown, harDCore, and British Punk, the Pietasters deliver a world-class performance. Their style of Ska, Rock and Soul – sing along songs and dance-through-your-socks rhythms are played by friends who remain true to their roots. They play what they like to play and will be bringing their lively sounds to the Walk this year!
