Flashband helps musicians meet, network, and play music.

Just a fan of music?

One of the main types of Flashband events is the Flashband Showcase. For these events, we bring together a group of 40 musicians who form temporary, one-time bands. After a month of practice and songwriting, we put them on stage for a one-night only show.

We currently only have events in the Washington, DC area, but we are working on expanding to new cities! Join the mailing list to choose which new cities you want to get updates about, or email neal@flashband.org if you want to help start a chapter in your city!

Music Fans

if you're not a musician but like music, or just want to come to a fun event, lots of our events are good to come as an audience member and music enthusiast. Come watch temporary bands perform in a showcase or listen to new music at a music discussion party. You can get updates about events best for non-musicians by identifying yourself as 'audience' when you join the mailing list.
