mamm slam: business class


Many of Maine's leading businesses have their own "house" bands--rock bands made up of company employees who like to jam out somewhere other than the board room.  MAMM is challenging these groups to participate in the first-annual MAMM SLAM: Business Class - Maine's Local Business Rock Off!

On Thursday, May 31st bands from CIEE, Engine Room, and WBLM will have a chance to take the stage at the Portland House of Music & Events and show a panel of local celebrity judges what they're made of.  The groups will each be allowed to play for 30 minutes and the last group standing in this winner-takes-all battle royale will have a chance to perform at the Maine Academy of Modern Music's stage at the Old Port Festival on June 10! 

The event will also feature performances by MAMM student bands and the proceeds of this local business rock off will benefit MAMM's community outreach programs.

MAMM SLAM: Business Class will be held on Thursday, May 31 at Portland House of Music & Events (25 Temple St, Portland).  Admission is $10 advanced, $12 day of event.  


Proceeds of this local business rock off will benefit MAMM's community outreach programs.

In addition to its popular after school programs such as private lessons, ensembles, and its MAMMOTH series, MAMM also provides music education programs to local schools and non-profit organizations, providing hands-on instrument workshops, artist-in-residency programs, private concerts, and ensemble direction to hundreds of students across Maine.  Partners include the Long Creek Youth Development Center, Preble Street Teen Center, The REAL School, the Maine Seacoast Mission's EdGE after school program, and others.
