ABOUT WITH THE BAND
Hi! My name is Sarah Beth Perry, and I am the Founder & CEO of With the Band. I grew up as the typical fangirl, loving every boyband, buying all the concert tickets, and waiting in all the lines. Some of my favorite bands were the OG Jonas Brothers, One Direction, and 5 Seconds of Summer.
I knew I wanted to work in the music industry from a young age. After many years of fangirling with my sister over our favorite bands, I realized there was an opportunity to improve fan engagement between artists and their fans. I went to work in different digital positions within the music industry only to find that artists were also struggling with fan engagement. Then… I created With the Band. We are cultivating a community where fans and artists feel a part of something bigger than themselves.
I won awards and grant money from multiple pitch competitions through organizations like Belmont University, Sigma Nu Tau, LaunchTN, and I was a finalist for both AARP’s Innovation Labs Pitch Competition and the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards. Less than a year after graduating from Belmont University with a double major in Entrepreneurship and Music Business, I was named one of Belmont’s Top 100 Alumni Entrepreneurs.
In only 5 years, I’ve grown With the Band from an idea in my dorm room to a company captivating packed out arenas with creative and collaborative fan projects. Some of my favorite activations include our “Comeback Project” at the Jonas Brothers’ highly-anticipated Happiness Begins Tour and our “Rainbow Project” at the Kacey Musgraves’ Oh What a World sold-out concert in Nashville, TN.
