Weekend Pick: Seasons' Decemberfest offers six bands for $20


CobraHawk performs at the Save Erik's Van concert at Bearded Monkey Cycling and Fitness on Aug. 31.

Is seeing this area’s best rock band, CobraHawk, worth $20?

I say yes. They always put on a barn-burning show, and I’ve spent more on worse bands. But that’s not really the question. The question is: Is seeing a seven-act lineup studded with quality artists and headlined by CobraHawk worth $20?

That’s definitely a yes, right? Because that’s what’s on offer this Saturday at The Seasons Performance Hall’s second annual Decemberfest benefit. You get CobraHawk, Zach Hinson, Jayleigh Ann & The Lost Boys, Tempest, These Guitars Say Sorry, The Chase Craig Band, and Rondi Marsh with Chuck Easton. Plus local rapper Leviticuss is set to host. All for $20.

That’s a wild lineup. In addition to the expert rock musicianship and banshee howling of CobraHawk, there’s country (Hinson), folk (These Guitars) and jazz (Marsh and Easton). And then there’s Jayleigh Ann & The Lost Boys, who spent 2019 maintaining their status as Yakima’s hardest working band and who dabble in a whole bunch of genres.

There’s also beer. Lots of beer. Eight local breweries are signed up to sell their stuff, including Varietal Beer, Valley Brewing, Wandering Hop and Single Hill Brewing. Plus there will be food for sale.

It’s all lining up to be a stellar party. And all proceeds go to Toys for Tots and The Seasons (with all door proceeds going to Toys for Tots). In fact, if you want an even better deal, you can get a coupon for a half-price ticket by donating an unwrapped toy at The Seasons, 94.5 KATS FM studios or any Yakima Federal location.

That makes it a $10 ticket, which means you’ll be helping a good cause while paying $1.43 per band. That’s maybe the best deal of the year.
