Durham advertising powerhouse McKinney produces this event. The pick the best band, and the most creative. The latter will be judged on things like mixing genres, unconventional ways of playing instruments, and even remixes of familiar songs.
Proceeds from the show will benefit the East Durham Children's Initiative. Founded in 2008, EDCI's goal is to change the expectations and outcome for youth in a 120-block area in East Durham. The nonprofit provides early childhood interventions, family support, after school and arts and summer programs.
There is a discount for early registration, so bands interested in participating can save a few dollars by registering early. Companies and organizations without bands can sponsor the event and get information about doing so on the event website.
