WASHINGTON — Known as the next great Pop Piano Man, Gabe Dixon, will perform at ASAE’s Summit Awards Dinner, October 5, at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC to honor six outstanding associations in the community. On Thursday night, Dixon will be the musical act on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show.

Dixon, who led The Gabe Dixon Band for 10 years, released his first solo album One Spark in August, and he will be performing his pop-rock songs at the event. In 2008, The Gabe Dixon band released their self-titled release and their song “Find my Way” was featured as the main title theme in the Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds film The Proposal. In 2001, Dixon joined Paul McCartney’s band to perform keyboards and sung back vocals for his album ‘Driving Rain,’ and he was a member of Macca’s band for the 9/11 fundraising concert for New York.

The Summit Awards entertainment is provided by Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau and Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, who are continued supporters of the association community.

“For the past 10 years, ASAE has worked with Nashville to bring in great musicians to play a tribute for the associations we are honoring,” said ASAE President and CEO John H. Graham IV, CAE. “The Summit Award winners are showcasing the high-quality effort and leadership within the association world. These programs are not only helping to advance growth and guide their communities, they are making a global impact.”

“It is always an honor to support the Summit Awards and the great work of all the winners,” said Butch Spyridon, president of the Nashville CVB. “I take great pride to ensure that the organizations being honored hear incredible music, and this year everyone is in for a treat with Gabe Dixon. He is a master singer/songwriter/musician and you won’t be disappointed."

Nearly 1,000 association and nonprofit professionals, and supporters of the association sector, are expected to attend this year’s Summit Awards Dinner, an event to recognize the excellent work in the association community to improve the quality of life through exemplary community-based programs. The six being honored for their work are: American Occupational Therapy Association, Association of Equipment Manufacturers, Kane County Farm Bureau, Million Dollar Round Table/MDRT Foundation, National Industries for the Blind, and Pediatric Nursing Certification Board.
