This event is all ages

Twenty20 is a local DC rock band consisting of four high school seniors who love to play music. The band formed in 2010 when guitarist Ben Froman and bassist Lucas Donovan moved to DC from New York. Lucas and Ben soon befriended vocalist Hugo Carney and drummer Joey Doyle. All fueled by their love for rock n’ roll, the boys formed Twenty20.

Since then, Twenty20 has been all around DC doing what they love. Along with playing at local venues such as Comet and Union Market, Twenty20 has also shown initiative in giving back to the community with performances for Bono’s ONE foundation and self-funded shows to benefit local DC charities.

Twenty20 has been actively creating their own music since they released their first EP in March 2015, which was powered by the hit song "Heart Thief." In 2017, they put out a new 5-song EP titled "29 Kings Ct", which includes songs like their energetic rock anthem “Outta my Head” and the upbeat punk-influenced tune, “In Your Dreams”. In the fall of 2018, Twenty20 went on tour, with gigs at the Illinois State Fair, The Iowa State Fair, Arlene's Grocery in lower Manhattan, and the New York State Fair. Expect a new release, with new originals by Twenty20, to come out by the end of the year!
