Friends of the Day Center held its First Annual Music Battle Royale, with support from the Federal Way Farmers Market on May 11.
The lively and fun-filled half-day event featured performances from the Decatur High School Band, the Thomas Jefferson High School Band, the Jazz Misfits, and KZOK 2018 Battle of the Bands finalist “Once Upon a Tuesday.”
