The Guam Society of America 2012 Chamorro Night event will go on as scheduled, however, due to notification received today (Oct 1, 2012) and circumstances beyond the Guam Society’s control, the featured act for the evening , D.U.B. aka Da Udda Band, will not be able to perform.
The committee has worked hard these last few months ensuring the venue, food preparations, decorations, and program entertainment was befitting a celebration of the Guam Society’s 60th anniversary. So the committee has decided to continue the celebration as planned with all of the activities and program already scheduled, including the Announcement of the 2013 Cherry Blossom Princess, our Chamorro Night Raffle, and the Chamorro dinner.
We want to thank our local band for stepping in at the last minute so that live entertainment will be provide by the Pacific Islanders Band – featuring Joe Evangelista, Bubba Evangelista, Joe Tedpahago, and Dimas Tedpahogo.
We are extremely sorry for this late notice and ask for your understanding as we proceed forward with the event. The Pacific Islanders Band is made up of some of our very own Guam Society members and they have entertained us over the years with their music at many of our events – they definitely will not disappoint us.
We still have seats available for the event and the activities planned for the evening are still on – so spread the news and get your friends and family to come out for a cultural night of music, Chamorro Fiesta cuisine, raffles, and the announcement of our 2013 Cherry Blossom Princess.
