Flashband: (Short Version) 30 - 40 musicians meet and jam together at a meet and greet session. After you jam and meet everyone. 6- 7 bands form from that night. You can pick & choose or others ask you to join, anyone left will get assigned. You then have 1 month to write and rehearse a 15 minute set to perform at a show with the other flashbands. You must go to the site and register,create a profile, then you must sign up for the meet and greet.

I have performed in a previous Flashband event and found a great number of musicians and that is howIi met my current band members. I have also grown as a musician from it.

There are two Flashband events coming up. This is a limited event so I am leaving it to you ... those who RSVP to this meetup will be sent a link to the Flashband page to sign up and register. The quicker you RSVP the quicker you get the link. There are already a number of people who get to this from previous events and registration just opened for both events. This will be open for 10 spaces on this meetup but I will not guarantee you a spot on an event as I am not in control of how soon you sign up and register. 

RSVP to this meetup DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE ON THE FLASHBAND EVENT. You will get a link asap to the Flashband signups. Details below

Musicians Wanted We've just announced two upcoming events, for September and October. Between the two events we have space for 70 musicians, so tell your musician friends to join us!

The Shows:

Genre Mashup Each band will be randomly assigned four genres, of which they must pick at least two to create their take on a genre mashup. Genres will range from ska to americana, hip hop, zydeco, and metal.
Meet-and-greet: Sun, Aug 25, 6pm
Show date: Fri, Sept 20, 7pm
Signup opens Monday, Aug 12 at noon

From Scratch This will be the first Flashband with no cover songs. All bands must do a full set of all original material. 
Meet-and-greet: Sun, Sept 8, 6pm
Show date: Sat, Oct 12, 7pm
Signup opens Monday, Aug 12 at noon

Both shows are at The Dunes, 1402 Meridian Place NW, Washington D.C.
  Since signup filled up so quickly last time, we're delaying opening of signup so everyone gets a fair shot at participating. Mark your calendar for when the signup opens if you want to participate!
