Backstage Ball 2017
- Get Tickets
Developing talent. Building an audience. Expanding our sound. For years we’ve worked to put Des Moines on the national music map and together we’ve created a music city.
Now it’s time to turn up the volume!
Join us to celebrate individuals making noise in and about Des Moines’ music scene, and help build an even stronger, more diverse music community.
The evening will include drinks, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, awards ceremony, Portrait Studio sessions, and live music performances from Americana roots-rockers Ducharme-Jones and Iowa Jazz, Blues and Rock ’n Roll Hall of Famer Dartanyan Brown (featuring Tanner Taylor and Scott Dawson). Brian Campos, host of Pants OFF! Podcast, will emcee.
Volunteer for free admission, free food/drink, new friends, and great music!
Free, covered parking is available in the State of Iowa parking ramp at Grand and Pennsylvania Ave (one block east of Streetcar 209).
