FlashBand can connect you to like-minded musicians and help you make your own band!

Whether you’re looking for some casual jam sessions with friends or a full-time group with regular gigs and performances, the Centre for Music Performance’s FlashBand is here to help you find the right people.

The CMP FlashBand mixer sessions, which for Michaelmas 2023 will take place on the evenings of Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 October at West Road Concert Hall, are designed to help students find like-minded musicians and performance opportunities.  You’ll meet and jam with a range of potential bandmates, discuss musical ideas, and have the chance to ask current students any questions you may have about the Cambridge music scene. 

FlashBand is open to students of all musical backgrounds and across all genres including Hip-hop, Jazz, Rock, Soul, Funk, Pop, World, and Folk music. 

There are 2 session dates, so sign up for the one you can attend. Students that sign-up for a session will be sorted into groups, allowing you to play with a range of other musicians. Once you have completed the form, you will be contacted to sign up for a session at the start of term. 

Pianos, bass amps, guitar amps, microphones, and drum kits are provided. If you play another instrument, please bring your own instrument to use. 

If you are unable to attend the session you have booked into, please cancel the booking, so your space can be used by another musician.
