Covering Beatles’ songs is dangerous – they’re iconic, deceptively complex, and pretty hard to improve upon. April’s Flash Band Project will test the skills of forty musicians as they come together with four weeks to prepare their fifteen minute set. Style and genre are up to the musicians, so there will be some of everything.

The rules:

 

  • One Beatles cover
  • One original song
  • All brand new bands

 

Don’t know what the Flash Band Project is?

 

Flash Band events bring together a group of musicians who form new, temporary bands (Flash Bands). After a short period of rehearsal, we put them on stage for a one-night only show. Read more about it here.

 

Want to play?

The Flash Band Project is open to any musician who wants to play, but spots are limited. Registration is open from February 25th until either March 10th or when all forty spots are filled. We'll have a waiting list if we go over, and more events soon after! All registered musicians should plan to attend the meet-and-greet party at 5pm on Sunday March 10, just off the Orange line in Arlington.
