Your 2019 Headliner for the St. Jude Rock 'n' Roll Seattle Marathon & 1/2 Marathon: Washed in Black!


Bringing the most authentic live Pearl Jam experience outside of the actual band itself, Washed in Black aims to capture a genuinely exciting live performance that will keep the crowd singing along with every song. Through their tributes in both full concert and unplugged formats, Washed in Black brings the sound, spirit, and vibe that helped to define a bold new era in rock, sharing that with their audiences and other Pearl Jam fans across the country.

The band is comprised of a group of seasoned musicians all hailing from the great Pacific Northwest. Banded together to pay homage to the music of Pearl Jam and to bring the full concert experience of one of the most iconic grunge bands of our time.
