2020 is our 5TH ANNUAL SWITCHFOOT SUMMER GETAWAY
Here’s a look back at the past 4 years!
Amigos, you have made the last 4 Getaways UNBELIEVABLE!! Together, we’ve kicked off a Record Release Party on the upper deck of a sunset cruise around San Diego Bay. We enjoyed an exclusive “friends and family only” premiere of the film “Unbroken”, with our friend and Hollywood Producer “Matt Baer” answering all your questions. You helped us surprise and throw Romey one of the best birthday parties ever!! And we’ll never forget singing with you under the San Diego stars as the waves rolled in behind us and our surprise guest saxophone player from the pier stole our hearts.
Every year has gotten BETTER & BETTER!!
Thank you for living life with us, but this is only the beginning. There’s still so much more to come in 2020!!
