Bandaloo is a weekend long event that connects local musicians, supports them with coaching from experienced artists and music industry leaders, and provides them with a spotlight to perform. The event begins on Friday where local musicians across all genres meet and begin to form musical groups. On Saturday, groups will work with music experts to help guide and shape their sound and identity. The weekend culminates on Sunday with a live concert open to the public where groups will be selected to perform on stage for an audience, resulting in one winning group. The winner of Bandaloo will receive not only press and connections to the Bandaloo network, but also free recording studio time and gigs at local venues.
When & Where
Simply put, we want to put the 'us' back into music. There is a wealth of musical talent in every community, but we have noticed a disconnect and lack of collaboration between local musicians. By bringing together musicians across a multitude of genres, our goal is to increase creative collisions amongst musicians in the community, allowing them to produce unique music together. We believe in this movement to make music about music again whether it's playing around a fire with your friends, jamming with a complete stranger, or practicing with a musician of a different genre.
