Mentoring by Bach to Rock, Hubbels Music School and School of Rock
The BandJam competition will continue in 2019 with local area bands submitting their original and/or cover song recordings. On November 24, things heat up when finalist bands perform on The Playhouse stage before a live audience and face a panel of judges including “American Idol” finalist Kimberly Locke, I95’s Ethan Carey and others!
The Ridgefield Playhouse BandJam competition is open to area Middle School and High School bands. You do not need to attend Ridgefield Schools to participate. Bands will be grouped in two categories: High School (grades 9-12) & Middle School (grades 8 and below)

IMPORTANT: Recordings and songs performed must not be defamatory, or obscene, and may not include profanities as determined by the judges. Any such entries will be disqualified.

WHO SAYS YOU HAVE TO BE AN ADULT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
After learning that the not-for-profit Ridgefield Playhouse was struggling in 2009, three Ridgefield boys wanted to do something to help. In 2010, Cole Butchen, Michael Rosamilia and Tucker Hearon created a benefit event called “Ridgefield BandJam” for not only Ridgefield students, but all area High School and Middle School students in bands that rock!
Under Playhouse leadership, the three boys spread awareness of BandJam and witnessed its growth over the years. BandJam has raised over $100,000 since its inception. When the three founders went off to college, the torch was passed to local students Paige Hearon, Will Rosenthal and Austin Steitzel. Today, BandJam continues to be guided by an amazing group of community-minded kids.
