Lawyers Trading Briefcases for Bass Guitars

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Eighteen local law firms are banding together to help D.C.’s homeless.

The law firms are hosting their tenth annual battle of the bands to benefit Gifts for the Homeless, Inc., Thursday night.

The bands gathered at the historic Black Cat on U street NW, where they will compete to be the next “Banding Together Champion.”

“Many of them are middle aged men or women dressed like Jimmy Buffet or the Wilson Sisters from Heart,” says WNEW Reporter Cameron Thompson.

Each band will be judged on how much money they raise from the crowd. The band that raises the most, will get the coveted championship.

The competition will last until midnight.
