Start a one-time band among the ~45 participants at 7DrumCity during 4 hours of jam sessions. We'll all meet in the lobby at 4pm, then split into 4 different jam rooms, rotate rooms a few times, then reconvene in the lobby and form bands. Then your new band will learn and rehearse your set over the next few weeks, and alongside the other bands, perform on February 10th at Smith Public Trust! Each band must put together a 15 minute set.

Here's why 1700 people in the DC area love Flashband:

  • Meet and jam with new local hobbyists like you (no sketchy craigslist - we'll find the participants)
  • Play a Saturday night gig at a sweet venue
  • Have all show logistics, backline, and promo graphics taken care of for you
  • Get professional photos of you performing with your instrument
  • New BFFs from your one-time band! (you might even stick together?)
