Taking the place of Band Battle this year is the first annual Sonic Showdown 2018 on Saturday, May 19th from 2 -5pm at the Temporary in Willits.
Sonic Showdown is a showcase for young musical talent from Aspen to Rifle presented by Jazz Aspen Snowmass and the Jake Foerster Music Arts Fund. This is a unique opportunity for students show off what they can do! All forms and genres of music are welcome this year: DJs, bands, soloists, vocalists, rappers, collaborations, etc. A group of professional musicians will be on hand to offer each group a critique after they perform. JAS will also be watching and rewarding possible future performances at the June or Labor Day Experiences, complimentary recording time at a local studio and other perks.
