Last year Erika Van Pelt made it to the top ten on American Idol. This meant in addition to an incredible run on national television for one of the singers of Martha’s Vineyard’s own Sultans of Swing, she spent the summer touring the country with the rest of the idols. Tonight she returns to the Vineyard to sing with her old bandmates at Dreamland in Oak Bluffs.

The event is a fundraiser for Media Voices, an Island non-profit organization that works to raise awareness of the needs of poor children in the U.S. and around the world, through documentary film production, public advocacy and direct action.

Doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door for cash, $15 for credit cards. For more details, call 508-693-0752.
