Bandaloo is a new musical event that seeks to increase collaboration between local musicians. The goal was to create the first ever hackathon for musicians where they would have 48-hours to form a band, write a song, and perform live.
Kate Leisy (another 2013 Venture for America Fellow) and I used a crowdfunding campaign to fund Bandaloo. By focusing on social media, outbound sponsorship sales, and growing its online presence, we were able to raise enough money for four events.
We had our first event in New Orleans and Tank and the Bangas walked away as our winners.
