The sixth annual St. Louis Band Scramble
is almost upon us! Well, at least registration for the 'Scramble, which this year will take place on Saturday, January 31, at Off Broadway. See below for details on how to enter the always-fun event, via an email I received...
Sign-ups will be held at Off Broadway (3509
Lemp) and at the Chippewa Chapel (Thursday nights at The Wedge, 442 Bates).
Unlike previous Band Scrambles, enrollment is limited to only 35 spots this go-round. Participants will be invited to sign up beginning at 8 pm on
Thursday, December 18 at The Wedge - first come, first
served. Groupings will be announced on
Thursday, January 8, giving the bands just over three weeks before
the competition takes place on Saturday, January 31. A panel of celebrity judges will determine
the winners, and prizes will be awarded to the top three bands. The cost to enter the Band
Scramble is $15 per participant.
This registration fee will go toward scholarships for kids to attend Dave Simon's Rock School
, a cause near and dear to my heart (check out my cover story from a few years ago about it
). Scramble organizers want to raise enough to send at least three kids to the Rock School next summer.
