Flashband offers DMV musicians the exciting opportunity to hop into the DC music scene by meeting other musicians, forming bands, and playing a one-time-only showcase at a venue!
If you're new to Flashband, here's how it works: -Sign up at www.flashbandshowcase.com and pay the $35 registration fee. -Come to the Meet & Greet Jam and start a one-time band among the ~45 participants at 7DrumCity during 4 hours of jam sessions. Meet in the Cathedral Room at 4pm, then split into 6 different jam rooms, rotate rooms a few times, then reconvene in the Cathedral Room and form bands. -Learn and rehearse your set with your new band over roughly the next month before the show. Each band must put together a 15-minute set. -Alongside the other bands, perform at the show at a venue in DC! If you can only make the show, you can still participate, but you just have to be cool with being placed in a band after the meet-and-greet folks have formed groups.
