Work for Art's Battle of Bands Returns!

A Celebration of Employee Creativity

We invite you to join us on Wednesday, May 17 at the Crystal Ballroom, where employee-bands from some of Work for Art’s partner companies will perform in front of cheering friends, family and co-workers. A panel of celebrity judges will award several prizes including “Best Company Band,” and YOU, as an audience member will vote for an “Audience Favorite.”

Tickets are just $12 each, and all proceeds benefit Work for Art.

Here’s how it works:

  • Sponsorship opportunities range from $1,250 to $15,000 with the band entry benefit starting at the $5,000 level.
  • Each band can have between 3-15 members. Bands must be made up mostly of employees of the sponsoring company; only one musician in each band may be exempted from this requirement.
  • Each band will have 10 minutes to perform, with a 5-minute transition between bands. All A/V and the drum set will be shared among all bands.
