Gates Tomorrow Wakes up the Crowd

Hershey-based band Gates Tomorrow woke up the crowd this morning as THON crept through the mid-morning hours, delivering a vintage setlist that had everyone in the BJC dancing.

Gates Tomorrow was founded in Hershey at a fundraiser to benefit a mini-THON fundraiser and they’ve been jamming together ever since. The band led off with “Johnny B. Good” and kept with the dancing theme with a great performance of “Slide” by the Goo Goo Dolls that had everyone moving back and forth.

It’s hard to get a bad crowd reaction from any “Don’t Stop Believing” cove but Gates Tomorrow went above and beyond by offering a great, unique female vocalist version.

Although it was a short set, it was a great way to fill time during the All-U Hour, which is still going on now.
