QUILCENE — A small flock of rockers who deal in the music of the 1960s will descend on Leland Lake this weekend.
Dennis Mitchell of the Kingsmen — the band forever known for “Louie, Louie” — along with Jimi Hendrix’s brother Leon Hendrix, Charlie Marinkovich of Iron Butterfly and the Magic Carpet Ride, a Steppenwolf tribute band, are all scheduled to play the first Full Moon Festival on Saturday.
The venue is the Munn Ranch, by the lake at 112 Hectors Way, off U.S. Highway 101 at Milepost 290.
Just 500 tickets will be sold for the Full Moon Festival. They’re available — only until noon Friday — for $25.
The Full Moon Festival is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society in honor of Sandra Munn, who lost her fight against cancer February.
Widower Jim Munn will host the event, which in addition to the music will offer vendors of food, drink, art and tie-dyed T-shirts.
Gates will open at 10 a.m. The music will start at 1 p.m. and go on until nightfall.
The lineup is subject to change, especially in the case of Leon Hendrix.
He plans to fly in from Italy, said Glen Bui, who is working with Jim Munn on the event.
Bui is also the guitarist in the Magic Carpet Ride.
He promised that his group will do all 16 of Steppenwolf’s hits, including “Born to Be Wild” and “The Pusher” and of course the song the band is named after.
“Jim’s wife was a big fan of ours. When I heard that she passed . . . I couldn’t say no,” added Bui, who lives in Belfair.
Tickets are available at The Buzz, 128 N. Sequim Ave., Sequim; at the Itty Bitty Buzz at 110 E. First St., Port Angeles; and at Quimper Sound, 230 Taylor St., Port Townsend.

Munn hasn’t yet decided whether to make this an annual thing.
“We’ll see how this goes,” he said.
