TossedSalad: Pop Up Bands & Music Fans Combating Hunger in Cincinnati

It’s like “band in a hat” with a twist for charity (Freestore Foodbank). Musicians submit their name and instrument on this page or in a message. There’s a hosted drawing night with special guests (Oct 29 @Northside Yacht Club). Musicians randomly drawn form a pop up band. Two songs are randomly drawn for each band. Songs are submitted here (asking a $1 donation to Freestore per song). Pop up bands have almost 2 months to learn the songs – in any style. For examples, you get the song “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” and choose to play it as Ronnie James Dio or a Deftones song, VH1 style -- on stools. Bands are encouraged to have fun with the band names, costumes and styles. However, you do it, songs are performed live @Northside Tavern December 17. Cover and food donations on Dec. 17 go directly to Freestore Foodbank. A panel of judges will award a prize for Winning Band ($200) AND the two people that submitted the winning band’s songs ($50 each).
