Hello once again everyone! Much love and thanks to everyone who helped push us into the Top 10 and Round 2 of the Maurices Small Town Sound Search on Sonicbids.com! The contest is looking for the best in small town sounds, and we've made it into Round 2! In round two, the finalists were asked to record a song with the theme of "small town charm,"and last Sunday we put some finishing touches on an amazing little ditty we'll be submitting to Maurices very soon! Round 2 voting opens on December 1 and runs through the 15th, and you'll be able to hear the BRAND NEW song, and VOTE ONCE A DAY PER EMAIL ADDRESS to help us win this thing! There is some stiff competition, and there's even another ruKus radio artist in the contest as well! Very cool! So, thank you all, and help us spread the word! Send the link to your friends and have them vote as much as possible for the first 15 days of December! Help give The Kellys an amazing Christmas gift! :)
Also, December 10 brings us back to our most favourite Youngstown venue, Cedars Lounge! We're planning on bringing the house down with our new pals, The Royaltons out of Twinsburg, Ohio! These guys have quickly become a ruKus radio fan favourite, and we're extremely excited to have them along.
And speaking of, if you've yet to check out the all-new www.ruKusradio.com, do it! Sign up and create a profile absolutely free! Our bass player, Moe, has been running ruKus radio since 2007. From podcasts to 24/7 streaming, it does a wonderful job of supporting the independent musician and artist. The ruKus crew is currently hosting a funding drive to help keep the station alive and increase quality, and they're only asking for a $1 donation from as many people as possible! Please, find it in your hearts this holiday season to support the starving independent artist! Visit the ruKus radio Kickstarter campaign to donate 100% securely through Amazon.com.
Thank you all so much for your love and support! Have a great Thanksgiving, and we'll see you all at Cedars!
