    Damn it... we made the final round but we got 3rd place... they said our music was too "funky" to be in a rock festival (the 5th Annual Dubai Desert Rock Festival; if we won we open both days. This year Korn, Velvet Revolver, Muse and others came)... and the guys who got second place got a sympathy vote for playing with only half of their band...

    The rig supplied was an Ampeg SVT with an 8X10" cab. I was the only bassist who played a Fender... used my Yellow Submarine (blondie P).

    On the bright side a producer talked to us about recording and releasing one of our songs in Europe... lets see how that goes!

    by the way we got to meet Slash (and those Velvet Revolver guys hehe) backstage... what snobby rockstars...

    Congratulations, 3rd place is still something to feel good about. I would like to hear the track they called "Too Funky". Good luck with the recording contract!

    IME, those things are usually not about winning, but about who you shmooze with. I'd look at contact with a producer as a lot more important than your "ranking" in the contest. Good job! I hope y'all get a hit! :cool:
