What is ArtsWave CincyJams?

CincyJams is a new ArtsWave event in 2022 and will be a unique take on a Battle of the Bands. Employee bands will compete on May 19 at The Hard Rock Casino with one band emerging as the grand CincyJams Champion!

How will CincyJams work? 

Play an instrument? Grab a few coworkers, form a band and rock out! It’s that simple. Any and all genres welcome, just make sure you wouldn’t be embarrassed for your CEO (who may be in the audience) to hear it. 

Don’t play an instrument? That’s ok, like a true Battle of the Bands, audience response will help decide things as well. This means each band needs to pack the house with a cheering section!

Why should I compete? 

1) It’s fun! Live out those rock star dreams and have a great night playing onstage with other musicians from across the region.

2) It’ll connect you to your coworkers! You may not have known Bob from Accounting plays drums, but apparently, he can rock! The arts and music connect us together in ways that almost nothing else can. This is a great way develop relationships at work that you may have never thought possible.

CincyJams is dropping May 19, 2022 so let us know by April 1, 2022 if you and your coworkers want to play!
