BAND Against Bullying, the annual competition and outreach program established in 2012 to raise bullying awareness, has been virtually produced with the help of WNED for 2021. BAND Against Bullying Virtual will be aired on the BAND Against Bullying YouTube Channel, Facebook Page and www.nybandagainstbullying.org at 7 p.m. Dec. 28. The lead sponsors for this production are M&T Bank and Kiss 98.5.

“BAND Against Bullying” is a premiere inter-school music and arts performance related to the theme of “dignity.” Students from five local high schools will present themed performances to raise community awareness of bullying-related issues and to raise support of anti-bullying education efforts. Amherst, Clarence and Williamsville East high schools, Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts and Buffalo Public School #84 will be performing. Special guest Nicholas Picholas from Kiss 98.5 will emcee and the acts will be applauded by a panel of six exclusive celebrity and guest judges. 

Recording artist Andy Grammer will make a special appearance as part of this year’s event. Grammer discusses his song “Damn It Feels Good to Be Me,” which he co-authored with BAND judge Grant Michaels, in an interview with Nicholas Picholas that is included in the show.

Bullying and harassment occur frequently among youth. One out of three students are involved as perpetrator, target or both. Bullying and harassment are related to social, emotional, behavioral and academic problems, and can impact all involved, according to the event organizers.
