Utica, NY (WIBX) - If your band can get the beat on the street Boilermaker officials want to hear from you.

A move-up in the race start time and an increased number of runners is stimulating a need for more entertainment at this year's race.

Eligible bands should be located within a 50-mile radius of Utica.

Bands interested in being considered should e-mail Sarah Marris at: semarris@gmail.com.
