About This Event

On June 8, ten Flashbands will play their one and only show – a fifteen minute set that includes at least one original song written since the bands formed one month before. Style and genre are up to the musicians – and with musicians from all backgrounds, there will be some of everything.


****Saturday May 11****: Everything starts with a meet-and-greet jam on  May 11 at 6pm at the Art Factory at 721 Surry Street by the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge. Bring some potluck food, beer and your instrument... but first, add your profile on the site and then signup for the event. 



Don’t know what the Flashband Project is?


Flashband events bring together a group of musicians who form new, temporary bands (Flashbands). 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 Flashband Project is open to any musician who wants to play, but spots are limited. Registration is open from May 1st until either May 11th or when all forty spots are filled.



·         Be free to play a show on June 8 in downtown Wilmington

·         Come to the meet-and-greet jam at 6pm on Saturday May 11, in downtown Wilmington.

·         Form a band with other registered musicians. It’s great to come with a friend or two in mind, but plan on adding a couple people you haven’t met before as well. Existing bands are discouraged from playing ‘as-is’ (but are welcome to split up and play with new people).

·         Practice with your band 4-5 times.

·         Write at least one original song as a band after forming


Full details will be emailed after registering. If there’s anyone you know who would be interested in playing, tell them!
