Highline High Grad’s Band Returns To Mick Kelly’s Thursday, Sept. 3rd
They had their CD Release Party here on July 2nd, then played at the Tree Tree Point 4th of July party, and now Highline High School grad Trevor Rasmussen’s band, Boomerang Summer, is returning to Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub this Thursday, Sept. 3rd.
Rasmussen attended Sylvester Middle School, graduated from Highline High School and spent the better part of his childhood running around Burien; his mother was a P.E. teacher at Sylvester for 25 years. He moved back to Seattle two years ago after pursuing a full-time music career in Portland, and then L.A. where his dream was cut short when he broke his neck while surfing. After two years of rehab and a complete change of perspective he is now recovered, working fulltime as a publicist in his hometown and part-time as lead singer, saxophonist and songwriter for Boomerang Summer – something he wasn’t sure he’d ever be able to do again.
It’s even more special that he serendipitously connected with Highline High School grads and Burien natives Ian McKamey, guitar, and Ben Johnston, drums, to form the new band over the past year. All three attended HHS, played in the jazz and symphonic band.
On Thursday, Sept. 3rd the band will bring their infectious live show back to Burien’s Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub, which is located at 435 SW 152nd Street.
