Sponsored by Perkins Coie LLP Banding Together wrote - The confluence of international trade, intellectual property, energy and environmental resources, and internet policy plus a photographer, led to a band known as The Perks from Perkins Coie LLP. The Perks are John and Bob Isacson, Ryan Judy, Paul Smyth, Mike House, Fab Vayra and David Christy -- a combination of musicians so compelling that it boggles the mind why they have yet to release an album. In their day jobs, the Perks can be seen in meetings and heard on teleconferences, often taking notes and working on computers. One member takes a lot of pictures. Their appearance at Banding Together 2018 promises to be even more exciting. They come tonight from far and wide, including Alexandria, Potomac, McLean, Olney, both Peoples Republics of China and Takoma Park, Annapolis, and Maranello, Italy. The Perks wish to thank everyone for their support and patience, and most of all for their large and frequent donations to Gifts for the Homeless. Please keep the donations coming -- vote with your wallet early and often. See you June 14th.
