What is Athens Business Rocks? 

Athens Business Rocks is a fundraising event for Nuçi's Space which challenges local businesses to showcase the talents of their employees by forming bands to compete against other businesses on stage at the fabulous 40 Watt Club in downtown Athens. The winner of the competition is determined through a combination of judges' scores, audience input, and fundraising and at the end of the night the top band will be dubbed the Athens Business Rocks Grand Champion!
