December 18, 2009

The fourth band to hit the stage at Live 88.5‘s Big Money Shot Grand Finals this year was Amos the Transparent. Having seen them at the Round 3 Finals, I was expecting a good performance, and the band delivered. Unfortunately for them it wasn’t enough to beat Hollerado in the eyes of the judges.

Big Money Shot 2009 Grand Finals – Down In Ashes

December 7, 2009

The first band to hit the stage for Live 88.5‘s Big Money Shot Grand Finals this year was Down In Ashes. This is the second year in a row that they were in the finals. Both times they were chosen from the wildcard event. The band obviously has a hard core group of fans, as they have voted them into the wildcard event the past 2 years. While they did win $10,000 in support for making it to the finals, they walked away empty handed when it came to the big prize. Once again, the guys delivered a high octane set that their fans have come to expect. I’m certain you’ll see them in the competition again next year.

Big Money Shot 2009 Grand Finals – Hollerado

December 2, 2009

As I mentioned in my previous post, the big winner in Live 88.5‘s Big Money Shot contest for 2009 is Hollerado, who put on a great show and was definitely deserving of the win. Great songs and an energetic performance put them over the top. I think they had security freaking out at the end of their set, when they pulled a few people on stage. A few more took the liberty of jumping up, but luckily security was able to quickly put a halt to it, or it could have become chaotic up there. The lead shot only shows about half the people that made it on stage!
