Published in the July†11, 2012, issue


Music keeps Reunions moving, and this year had more than its share of headliners. New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi was the biggest name, performing for the Class of ’87 Friday night. The 25th reunion kept on rocking the following night with an appearance by Joan Jett, best known for her hits in the 1980s with Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Terrace Club hosted a concert featuring Phil Lesh, bass guitarist of the Grateful Dead, and jazz-fusion guitarist Stanley Jordan ’81; the event celebrated the graduation of Brian Lesh ’12, who with older brother Grahame performed with their father on the stage.
