Tickets to the 80s Getdown! The best party of the year.


Dress Up. Eat. Drink. Bid. Sing.  It's the 80s GETDOWN!

SAT., APRIL 8th - 6:15 pm

S.I.R. Rehearsal Studio - 11-1 Cherry Ave., 37203

Yeah. You heard right.  We said DRESS UP. Eat. Drink. Bid. SING!

Your Getdown ticket includes:

  • Delicious hors d'oeuvres with gluten-free and vegetarian options 

  • Desserts to tempt your palate

  • Open bar featuring our signature cocktails and plenty of brew provided by Little Harpeth Brewing Company

  • Complimentary valet parking courtesy of Rockstar Motorcars 

  • A great time with tons of fun people getting down to a phenomenal band - all for Linden Waldorf School

GETDOWN - verb. to enjoy oneself uninhibitedly, especially by dancing

What exactly does one do at a Getdown, you ask?

DRESS UP - That's NEW this year. Thrown on your neon and get your 80s on.  Your hair can't be too big for this event.

EAT - Chow on great food and plenty of it.

DRINK - Wet your whistle with a signature beverage like a Spacial Dynamic, a Steiner Shiner, or a Dragonslayer.

BID - This is a benefit auction, after all, so get ready to raise those paddles high for the exciting silent and live auctions.  We are happy to take your donations!  

SING - As in this is your chance to perform - and watch fellow Linden parents/faculty perform - onstage fronted by a world-class band.  

So, are you in?  Are you ready to Getdown? The Linden Getdown* is always the must fun adults-only party of the school year.  Get to know your fellow parents and Linden faculty in a whole new light - the spotlight, that is. The Glendale Getdown All-Star Band**, consisting of Viktor Krauss (bass), Kevin Ansell (electric guitar), Scott Hylbert (acoustic guitar), Ned Henry (electric guitar/violin), David Henry (cello), John Deaderick (keyboards) and Steve Bowman (drums), will do their homework ahead of time to polish the cover song of your choice and even sing back-up for you.

How does the Getdown work?  

Submit the song you (or your group) want to perform to by March 28th - that gives the band time to rehearse before the Getdown on April 8th.  You must include the MP3 or YouTube link of the version of your song you would like to perform to ensure that the band learns the correct one.  If all of the slots fill, you will be put on a waiting list for any last minute cancellations. Due to the limited number of slots, duets and groups are highly encouraged!

A sampling heard at last year's Linden Getdown included parents and faculty nailing hits by Bruno Mars, Hank Williams, Jr., Old Crow Medicine Show, Aretha, Frank Sinatra, Natalie Merchant, Journey, Tina Turner, Brad Paisley, Stevie Wonder, and the list goes on.  You know we want it, so bring it - 80s style -  Linden!

Do you have to be a professional singer?  No, there is no previous experience required - just the desire to rehearse on your own ahead of time and the nerve to get up there and belt it out! 

Could you dress up as your artist if you wanted to?  Oh, absolutely! Did you hear us say 80s?

The playlist, the Linden artists, and the order of performance will be a complete surprise until the Getdown! How could you miss this?

ONLY 17 SLOTS for songs!  Questions? E-mail Tricia Drake or call 615-354-0270 ext. 26.
