Get Ready to Rock: Golden Bell Battle of the Bands


The Golden Bell Education Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit corporation that was created by the Chamber's Board of Directors as a separate operating entity, for the sole purpose of supporting the Boca Raton Public School System and administrating educational programs that promote business skills and workforce readiness.

The Golden Bell Education Foundation’s mission is to support the Boca Raton public school system by administering funds and educational programs that promote business skills for students. The Golden Bell offers a Grant Program and the Young Entrepreneurs Academy.

We invite all Boca Raton public schools to submit applications for a Golden Bell Grant. Funds are awarded to deserving and innovative programs. The Golden Bell Board of Directors convenes annually to review grant applications and select recipients. This year, we raised almost $100,000 to support Boca Raton’s Educational Programs!

In its second year, Golden Bell Battle of the Bands will bring together five bands made up of South Palm Beach County’s business professionals. Teams will trade in their business suits for musical instruments and microphones to battle it out on stage in front of a live audience! In partnership with the School of Rock Boca Raton, participants will learn real musical skills. We can't wait for this rockin' good time! The event itself will take place on Saturday, September 28, 2019 when the bands will battle it out on stage at the Boca Raton Innovation Campus (BRIC).

This year, there will be a combination of 10 amateur and professional performances. The five competing amateur bands are Federal Highway, Game of Tones, Mechanical Solidarity, Rock Lobsters, and The Stilettos! The night will start with performances by The School of Rock’s Adult Grad Band and The School of Rock’s Instructors. A special performance by the 2018 Battle of the Bands Alumni, and the battle will kick off with the winning band from last year’s Battle of the Bands, 180 Proof. The night will close with performances by professional bands, Del Pelson and the Solar Reef Band!

The competing amateur bands have been working hard all summer long to put on a memorable and entertaining performance, and we are so proud of how far they have come.
