FaceOff is an entertainment and multimedia company that produces innovative band culture spaces and music competition platforms. We feature artists, musicians, and performers across the diaspora of performing arts.

FaceOff is the brainchild of Co-Founders D’Javon Alston & Rich Trotman who recognized a need for professionally curated spaces that promote the authentic expression of our culture. On July 1, 2022 in Indianapolis, Indiana FaceOff launched it’s inaugural event ‘On the Kit’ a 3-way versus-style drum-battle where three of the most phenomenal musicians on the planet competed for five quarters. The electrifying performances from Xavier Ware (Champion), Julian Allred (Runner Up), and KJ Garner (Second Runner Up) were scored by a panel of accomplished judges with audience interaction for the Fan Favorite Award (Julian Allred). As a team, we believe in heart centered love led competition for the purpose of mutual growth and this unprecedented event marks the beginning of a new era. It’s more than competition, its collaboration!

Our intention is to create spaces that elevate the presentation of artistic performance. We do this by creating new competitive formats on world class stages with the exceptional performers.

We envision extraordinary experiences where gifted artists compete in professionally-curated spaces scored by judges for the entertainment of the audience, evolution of the artists, and the empowerment of the collective. Follow Us everywhere @itsafaceoff to stay in tune and tapped in with our next move.

It’s band. It’s culture. It’s entertainment. It’s a FaceOff!
