Working for a company that supports your passion and embraces your mission is what has kept LifeSize together for the last 10 years.  It all started with a few phone calls and a General Manager that had an idea to bring together musically talented individuals within the organization to form a band to perform at national sales meetings.  Through the years, the band has expanded their mission to include philanthropy through music. 

They were a Finalist in the 2011 Battle of the Corporate Bands sponsored by Fortune Magazine and the Rock Hall of Fame.  They also competed in the 2017 Battle of the Biotech Bands earning $18,000 for the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Six musicians from 4 different states makes it a bit of a challenge to rehearse, but the band’s hard work, persistence and dedication is a recipe for success. They bring their own musical interpretation and style to the stage, but never lose sight of the reason they exist – to carry out the Cytiva mission of helping support scientific research to improve lives.   We are thrilled to have the opportunity to delight a local Boston audience in our 2nd appearance at the Battle of the Biotech Bands.

The Bad Elements first embarked on their musical voyage together as a cohesive rock band in April of 2019 after a few months of rumors that Biogen in Cambridge, had a new company band on the rise. Andrew, Tom, Meagan, John, Will, and Dario all worked in different departments at Biogen and - by chance - connected over a love of music that made those rumors a reality. All members have past musical experience spanning rock, jazz, metal, and theater that has played an influential role in shaping their paths as musicians. This diverse spread of genre led them to quickly create an infectious synergy of harmonious male and female vocals layered over vibrant, melodic guitar leads and hooks, earth-shaking bass, and all ultimately grounded by high-energy, technically-sound percussion. As The Bad Elements, they have collectively combined their talents, stellar taste in music, and passion to create a fun and unique experience for their audiences. Their sound is heavy, but beautiful and, at times, funky. Their catalog of performed songs can best be described as "eclectic" and is made up of a variety of feel-good rock covers that span more than seven decades!

(& Voyager Therapeutics)


Playing for:
Joseph's Hope Scholarship Fund for Epilepsy Foundation of New England

To Receive $100,000 !
 

Almost The Cure (ATC), is a supercharged Rock and Roll band born in 2018 from the biotechnology industry in Cambridge, MA.   All six members of ATC are as passionate about their music as they are of their quest towards scientific breakthroughs and the discovery of new medicines. 

 

From the beginning, ATC has embarked on a mission to provide high energy, edgy and, most of all, fun rock & roll music, along with fostering a strong sense of community and great citizenship.  Through their music, they have bridged their  pharmaceutical “day job” with the broader community of charitable organizations and foundations in the Boston area, most specifically the Epilepsy Foundation of New England, Joseph’s HOPE Fund.  ATC has never played for pay, and over the first three years of existence, has raised over 175K.  Recent performances include Battle of the Biotech Bands, The Bull Run, Cambridge Crossing Summer Nights, AudioArt, the JamSpot and The Sanctuary / the Middle East.

 

Francesco, Giovanni, John, Mathieu,
Blair  and Sheilah are Almost the Cure… because music is only
half the battle.
