About Legacy Band

With over 25 years of experience in the music industry, Legacy has quickly rocketed to a top requested, high-energy party band to the tri-state area and beyond. This 9-piece lineup packs a punch of a performance to keep the dance floor packed everywhere they go. Get ready for a seamless journey through the decades of top 40 popular hits- from current radio chart toppers, to 90’s favorites, Motown, funk, and disco throwbacks, and even rock sing-a-long staples.

The Fund to Finish

Since its inception in 1983, the Presidential Gala has raised more than $2 million dollars for West Chester University students. Proceeds from this year’s event will support the Fund to Finish, which provides flexible, emergency funding available to students when they’ve exhausted all other avenues of support — the “last-dollar” amount a student needs to complete their degree.
