The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut and Danbury Fair are seeking a local cover band to open for The Zoo, the region's longtime "powerhouse" club favorite, on Thursday, July 3rd at the Mall's annual holiday fireworks show.
The band will play from 6pm to 7:30pm, followed by headliner The Zoo, all leading up to the fireworks launch at dusk (9:30-ish). The event is open to all musical genres, styles and "look." However, the selected band will be best suited to an audience of families and small children. A stage is provided. The selected band must provide its own sound system and tech. Danbury Fair's promotions of the event, including its web site, will announce the band's participation extensively.
To apply, visit www.artswesternct.org. The deadline for all applications is April 30th. (Please note: A rain date of Saturday, July 5th has been set.) For more information about the programs and services provided by the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut, call (203) 798-0760.
