Broadway's new musical Gettin' the Band Back Together and iHeartMedia New York's classic Rock station Q104.3 have announced a promotion that will give one fan the opportunity to reunite their band.

The show will reunite up to five members of a former band, and the winner will receive transportation for each band member to and from New York City within the continental US, one hotel room for each band member for the nights of August 12 and 13, dinner at the Hard Rock Café, a tour of Q104.3 radio station, five tickets to the opening night performance on Monday, August 13, and a jam session with your band (location and time to be confirmed).

Gettin' the Band Back Together follows Mitch Papadopolous, who always dreamed about being the next Bon Jovi. However, he chose security over stardom and left those daydreams behind for a day job. For a while, he thought he had everything — the high-paying job, the high-rise apartment — until his 40th birthday, when he got handed a pink slip and had to move back in with his mom in Sayreville, New Jersey. When his high school archnemesis threatens to foreclose on their house, this big-shot banker must save his small-town home the only way he can…by winning the Battle of the Bands.

Directed by Tony Award winner John Rando and choreographed by Chris Bailey, Gettin' the Band Back Together began previews on July 19 at the Belasco Theatre in advance of an August 13 opening. The show has original music and lyrics by Mark Allen and a book by Ken Davenport and the Grundleshotz with additional material by Sarah Saltzberg.

Sharon Papadopoulos), Kelli Barrett (Dani), Becca Kötte (Tawney), Garth Kravits (Ritchie), Tamika Lawrence (Roxanne Velasco), Noa Solorio (Billie), and Brandon Williams (Tygen Billows).
