‘Rock the Rock’ rocks for Blue Fox near Oak Harbor

It’s time to Rock the Rock to raise funds for the Blue Fox Drive-In Theater. Rock out to a line up of bands beginning at 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25 and running until the first movie starts at the Blue Fox Drive-In.

The event is free but donations will be accepted. Funds will benefit the Blue Fox Drive-In’s work to go digital so that they can continue to show movies.

Rock the Rock 2012 is in memory of Tegan Ollie and dedicated to Sheri Lam Berkimer and Jean Hamer.

“Tegan was a long time Oak Harbor spark of quirk who recently passed away from intestinal cancer. She was far too young. Sheri and Jean cared for her with inspirational love and devotion until her last breath. Tegan absolutely believed in me and this work … her joy and peace was the most moving expression of faith and beauty I have ever seen,” said Scott Scrimshaw, event organizer, in an email.

Tour Director Scott Lack and his band “The Lacks” will do a pre-show “live-in studio broadcast” promo on Friday, Aug. 24 on the Bob Rivers show 95.7 KJR Seattle. Lack hangs out from time to time with members of Aerosmith, lives near the Judds and up the street from Keith Urban, Scrimshaw said.

The line up for Saturday includes the bands MartaY, Damac, Colton & Zara, We Follow One, The Lacks, The CotastroPhe, Runaway Symphony and Imari Tones. The bands represent three nations: Canada, Japan and the United States, Scrimshaw said.

“The Imari Tones is a great and very unique addition to the line-up. They are Japan’s first Christian rock band,” Scrimshaw said.

The Blue Fox Drive-In is located south of Oak Harbor on Monroe Landing Road, off Highway 20.
