About the event
This build-a-band fundraiser, puts adults in bands (all genders/ ages 21+). Each band will have one month to come up with 10 minutes of material to perform at an epic battle of the bands concert, all while raising funds to give music lessons to underserved youth!
No instrument instruction is provided. Beginner to Advanced musicians are welcome!
Band Rehearsal space will be pre-determined. Each band must have a minimum of 4 rehearsals and rehearsal locations/dates/times will be coordinated with your band at the kick off event.
Participants will choose their own bands during the kickoff party with the following stipulations:
Each band must have:
1. We Rock Band Leader (one of our designated musician volunteers)
3. Vocalist (they can also play an instrument at the same time)
4. Minimum of 2 Melody instruments
5. Minimum of 2 gender marginalized people aka women, non-binary, or trans folks.
Bands will have their own crowdfunding page for WRC and share it with their circles while working on their set.
On December 10th we will have our battle of the bands concert at Free Range Brewing in NoDa and determine the Rock Roulette winners!
There will be two prizes. One for the crowd favorite (determined by a decibel meter) and whoever raises the most money.
Our goal is to have more women/non-binary/trans folks than men or at least keep it even. If you aren't a feminist or an ally, this isn't the place for you!
