Puck Live show to support local music, local educators


Editor's Note: This article has been updated to reflect that Shana Trichon and Heather Reynolds are Central Bucks parents and that Reynolds is also a school board member.

A group of Central Bucks parents and a local organization promoting better access to live music are teaming up to support their respective missions at Puck Live in Doylestown Borough this weekend.

Band Together For A Cause will see the Stand Up For Justice Educator Fund join three local bands for an all-ages fundraiser at the night spot on Saturday, said one of its organizers, local musician and music promoter Joe Montone.

The educator fund, organized last year by Central Bucks parents Shana Trichon and Heather Reynolds,  who is also a school board member,  will recognize five local educators for their efforts to oppose bigotry and promote kindness in the classroom and beyond.

“We continue to honor outstanding dedication and innovation in our CBSD educators,” said Trichon, in a statement. “We reward those who are doing impactful work in their activities with their students.”

On the music side, the nonprofit Stage United is featuring Class Act, a popular seven-piece band of Central Bucks teachers; D’town Outliers, which includes two CB East High School teachers; and Pajammies, a funk/jam band that came out of CB East.

Stage United is working to expand the live music scene in the greater Central Bucks region.

“As a team, we wanted to transcend the normal fundraising event by demonstrating the intersectionality of local music and local education,” said Montone, in a statement. “Each artist performing has a strong connection to each other through CBSD.”

Advance tickets are $25 and can be purchased online at

Puck Live is donating 100% of ticket sales to the two nonprofits, said Montone.
