Now, I can say that I have 4 great rock bands with members I know who made it on top in various competitions amidst the odds. Hehehe. Being once into rock band myself way back my school days, I appreciate and love the music. Thus, I am really proud of these 4 rock bands and I am sure that they will do good in the music industry!
Congrats to the recent victory of FAIRCATCH! Nice song! Nice Performance! I first heard their songs –HERE, MIMES and THE ARSENAL in their MYSPACE site and I was impressed. When Voltaire Baniqued gave me a link to MTV EMERGE voting site, I spammed it to my contacts in support to him and his band. Impressive indeed yet humble. I have always told him via chat how good they are and I was always optimistic that they will win same as the recent victory of EEVEE. When I told him about EEVEE, he told me about the MTV EMERGE FINALS. I knew then that their band will definitely win. Hehehe!
Anyway, I will be blogging more about each band’s profile soon to be attached in this blog article. I know that they deserve our support now more than ever. The online community needs to know as well their achievements and their efforts to win and be masters in their craft. This is a clear lesson to the youth and to all that with determination and hard work spells victory. Well, the future of our local music scene is now in their hands! Hats off to all 4 bands! Cheers!
