Band of Brewers

What: Charity

When: Sunday - February 10, 2013 @ 01:00PM to Sunday - February 10, 2013 @ 04:00PM

Where: World Cafe Live, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Six local breweries are letting out their inner rockstar and are going to battle it out on stage in a battle of the bands meets American Idol format and all for charity. Each participating brewery has put together a band consisting solely of brewery employees and will be performing three songs. Being it's a brewery based event, each brewery will also have a firkin and a draft line to represent them. The songs and styles are up to the brewery and will be a mix of covers and originals. However, each band must perform one song that 'pairs' with their firkin they have provided (Think a cover of Peaches by the Presidents of the United States and a firkin of a cream ale: Peaches & Cream, but hopefully more creative than that).

There will be two sets of judges set up: one consisting of peope involved in the local music scene and the other the local beer scene. The music judges will judge the breweries based on their beer and the beer judges will judge the music performances. Plus, the judges will all have mic's and will be critiquing the performances in an American Idol fashion. In the end each set of judges will chose a winner.

Each brewery has chosen a charity that they want to represent and if they are one of the two winners, than half of all the money from the ticket sales goes to their charity. Not only that but TicketLeap has agreed to give half of the processing fees to one of the winning charities as well. When all is said and done, this event could raise over $12,000 for charity!

Participating Breweries:





Dock Street

Sly Fox

The $20 ticket fee is 100% for charity and does not include any drinks. The bar will be pay-as-you-go.
