This is very exciting! Bop Skizzum has been cleared to compete in Ford’s Gimme the Gig II for 2011! We know there are lots of on-line competitions that we may ask you to vote in from time to time, but this trumps any and all unsigned bands competitions we’ve ever been apart of!
In OTHER WORDS – WE REALLY NEED TO WIN THIS THING!
It is a super legit competition, were the finalist get flown out to LA, and get to record a song with Grammy award winning producer Don Was! For those of you who Aren’t familiar with Don, he has produced everyone from Al Green, the Rolling Stones, Stone Temple pilots, Elton John, Stevie nicks to George Clinton, Brian Wilson, Jackson Browne! You name it he has worked with them! On top of that there are a ton of prizes, sponsorship packages and a huge amount of exposure. This could really help our brand and style of funk get a ton of exposure.
