Each band will perform a 20-minute set of their choosing. Unlike the solo and duet auditions, the bands chosen by the judges will move forward to the Jam immediately. 2 bands from this audition will be chosen to play at the Suwannee River Jam and a third will be designated a wildcard. (Wildcards will fill any available slot during the Jam).

Auditions are free to attend, so come out and enjoy some amazing regional talent as they fight for their chance to perform at the Suwannee River Jam!
