Downbeat 720

Downbeat 10th Anniv   

DOWNBEAT 720  - Now in its 12th year! - is a FREE positive performance lab for High School Performing Artists. Whether you’re a singer, poet, mc, dancer, actor or musician, Downbeat 720 provides a safe, structured environment to try out new material, gain confidence and perform in front of an audience of your peers.

All High School students welcome!

The Lobby opens at 7:00 pm for sign-ups. The theater opens at 7:20 pm. Bands who need to set up need to call ahead and show up at 6:30 pm. Come in, mingle, meet other performing artists from all over the city and then listen to DJ JEDI (Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry Tour) spin between each participant, keeping the energy high as our hosts Joe Hernandez-Kolski and Joshua Silverstein introduces each act and our special guests, who donate their time to help mentor and inspire.

Check out our website for more info.

DOWNBEAT 720 happens on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month. It is FREE to participate and FREE to attend!
