Teens who have participated in one of our past Battle of the Bands, held annually each summer and hosted by the Davenport Public Library and Parks & Rec. Dept., might be interested in the following great opportunity to rock out! You’ll need to sign up soon, so don’t wait!
United Way of the Quad City Area’s Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is accepting applications for bands wishing to compete in their Battle of the Bands on February 28, noon-5:00 at Mojo’s at the RME. The event is focused on spotlighting talented teens in the Quad Cities area while building awareness among high school students of 10,000 Hours Show Quad Cities (10KQC). The winner of the Battle will open the 10KQC concert at the Capitol Theatre on April 18th.
10KQC is a new program in the Quad Cities geared towards generating over 10,000 hours of volunteer service by local high school and college students. Students verifying 10 hours of volunteer service in the Quad Cities will be rewarded with a free ticket to a concert. Volunteer service is the only way to get a ticket to the event.
While the 10,000 Hours Show is already established in Iowa City and Des Moines, this will be the first year for the program in the Quad Cities. The 10KQC concert will feature Trippin Billies and Minus Six, as well as the Battle of the Bands winner.
Applicants may download an application at http://www.unitedwayqc.org/ or pick one up in Mojos Cafe. All applications must be received no later than February 15, 2009.
