​The Smokin Tuna Saloon hosted our first annual “Berklee or Bust” Fundraiser to send two BVMP students, Melson & Rodney Maxime to the Berklee School of Music’s 5 week summer performance program. These amazing young musicians started at BVMP when they were just 6 and 7 years old and rose through the ranks to become student teachers and eventually a BVMP Board Member! We couldn’t be more proud of them. Special thanks to Nick Norman, Daryl Brooke, Dora Gohlson, Topher Jamess and Kerri for providing the entertainment.

Later that summer, BVMP hosted our 15th Birthday Party at the Smokin Tuna and celebrated all of the accomplishments of the last 15 years.
