Buffalo Killers: Heavy Reverie

Bufalo Killers [l-r]: Zach Gabbard [bass]; Sven Kahns [guitar]; Joe Sebaali [drums]; Andy Gabbard [guitar]

If It's Your First Time at Lunch Beat, You Have To Dance

Ditch your desk for an hour-long party in the middle of the work day. If you dance, you get a free lunch.

The idea behind Lunch Beat is simple – ditch your desk for an hour-long party in the middle of the work day. If you dance, you get a free lunch.

Lunch Beat was first brought to Cincinnati by Starfire Council last Spring. These semi-impromptu pop-up lunch events are designed to bring people together, highlight the fun and creative energy in the city of Cincinnati and most of all - to get people of all kinds to DANCE!
