NORTH SALEM, N.Y.— North Salem band Gilbert was the winner of the Ridgefield BandJam on April 30. Gilbert was among eight talented middle and high school bands from the Ridgefield area selected to compete.

A panel of celebrity and industry professionals judged the competitors based on musicianship, quality of sound and showmanship.

The band will receive, among other things, a $500 Guitar Center gift certificate, two hours of studio time from Ridgefield’s Enchanted Garden Studios and a $50 Ridgefield Music gift certificate.

Ridgefield BandJam was created in 2010 as an event to raise money for Ridgefield Playhouse. Organizers say the event has raised more than $100,000 through 2016 since its inception.
