On Wednesday evening August 1 is a performance by “Al D. Hyde and the Key Tones”. This band of chemical educators has been performing at the ACS Biennial Conference on Chemical Education since 2004. The band plays an eclectic and electric mix of dance music from classic rock, rock and soul, surf and pop genres. Their high-energy performances have been a favorite at the BCCEs and we are sure you will find the band exciting and engaging. All band members volunteer their time and talent as musicians and singers. The band members are not giving up their day jobs to tour, but they do manager to surprise quite a few people. You will probably see several of the band members around the conference as they are presented papers and serving as presiders of symposia sessions. The band will play two sets. There is no charge and there will be a dance floor. Please take the time from your busy schedule to attend this event. Relax, mingle with your colleagues and get set to tap your toes and sing along to Hits from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. BCCE participants can enjoy "heavy" hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be open.
