About This Event

----------------UPDATE: This event has been moved to January, 2016------------------

 

For one night, eight one-month bands will take over Ikaros in Baltimore for an epic live-band dance party to be remembered. After being introduced through a meet-and-greet jam session, a group of forty musicians will have one month to form and practice as one-time bands.

As with past Flashband events, each band will be given one fifteen minute set and must play at least one original song; this time, all the bands are asked to play all dance music, in any form they want to interpret it. From hip-hop and pop to soul, reggae, jazz, or zydeco, we'll have it all - with a new band every fifteen minutes.

The event will begin with a musician meet-and-greet on Sunday, October 25 at 4pm, at Songbuilder Studios in Catonsville. Musicians will self-form into temporary bands, and will have four weeks to rehearse for their fifteen-minute set. See photos of past eventsRead more about how the Flashband Showcases work.
