    The Official Band of San Francisco’s 2024 Spotlight Concert

    On May 18, 2024, the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band presented their annual Spotlight gala show and fundraiser before a sold-out audience at the Grand Theater on Mission Street. 

    The evening featured amazing music from the worlds of animation, video games, and anime. The selections ranged from Disney (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Little Mermaid), Nintendo (Super Mario Bros, Zelda), Pixar (Despicable Me, The Incredibles, Coco), and more. Donna Sachet and Leanne Borghesi served as co-hosts, lending their impressive comedic and vocal talents, just as they did at the first Spotlight in 2016. 

    The audience also witnessed the San Francisco debut of Sacramento-based countertenor Ken Dulay, who was featured on “I Was Born for This” (from the Sony PlayStation game Journey). During intermission, while the various silent auctions were wrapping up, the big band Super Super raised the roof with their great swing sounds. 

    At the end of the evening, the silent and live auctions raised thousands of dollars for the Official Band of San Francisco, now in its 46th year.
