Information
the 21st YEAR OF BAND BATTLE TO END CYSTIC FIBROSIS - AT MR BEERYS OF BETHPAGE

Last year was a great success, the 2016 Band Battle Against Cystic Fibrosis show had hundreds of people show up and 25 bands played all day and night, till 4am in the morning on Monday.. The bands played their hearts out and the staff kept up with the crowd very professionally.. The final tally was measured in the thousands of dollars for the Cystic Fibrosis Fund to set aside. zI twas a real good fight against this horrible disease.

 

Lets make this disease a thing of the past by helping Mr Beery again in 2017 with our 21st year with this great benefit. There will be many things set up to raffle off this year and tons of prizes and a super list of popular Long Island bands to play and help the fight. Thank you for your help and thank you for making this an incredible event.

 

ATTENTION BANDS:

The basic idea of the show is for bands to bring the least amount of eqipment. Please bring yourself, your band members and GUITAR HEADS ONLY (if you play a combo thats fine to bring too, just no cabs)
Bring your cymbals, and only necessary hardware (we have kick pedal and 3 cymbal stands, as well as snare and throne, only bring stuff that is necessary)

 

 

The bar is a straight up madhouse this day and we don't have a lot of space for extra gear, so keep it light, and be ready to hop on stage and play! When breaking down your drum stuff please do it off of the stage. When time is of the essence we don't have the luxury of waiting for you to take apart everuthing ON STAGE, just take the whole stand off and do it on the side of the stage area or outside.... thank you

We will have
Drums (5 Piece Pearl Set)
cymbal stands,
2 4x12 GUITAR cabs (both cabs are 8 ohms)
1 4x10 Bass cab
Peavey Bass head (graciously donated by Matt Griffin of Kid and the Koots)
3 di boxes
1 marshall valve state guitar head (if necessary)
Emergency Cymbals (if necessary)
