This show will be at Gypsy Sallys, by the Georgetown waterfront. Come early to get a table and dinner, the food is delicious!

Flashband Showcases bring together a group of musicians who form new, temporary bands. After a short period of rehearsal, we put them on stage for a one-night only show. Don't know about showcases? Read more about them here.



It's been a while since the 60's! Feel free to draw inspiration from any 60's genre - take a listen to these songs to start thinking about what to play:

Sam Cooke – Chain Gang

Johnny Cash – Ring Of Fire

The Ronnettes – Be My Baby

The Beatles – A Day In The Life
