Whistler’s Slush and Fall of Summer are two of 52 B.C. bands, that have made it to the preliminary round for the Canadian version of the reality television show Bodog Battle .
Bands across Canada are rocking auditions hard for the $1 million Bodog Music recording contract grand prize.
Bands with the highest vote totals on their profiles at battle.bodoglife.ca were invited to perform at the audition round, where 24 bands will be selected for the regional competition.
Cheer on Slush and Fall of Summer during their auditions Monday, Oct. 15 at The Plaza Club in Vancouver.
Slush has delivered melodic punk rock since 1992, with eight albums to their credit and one more on the way for 2008. The Whistler crew includes vocalist Adam Legett, drummer Jamie Weatherbie, guitarist Matt Elliot and bassist Gavin McDermott.
The Fall of Summer, a power trio of Jay Greenway, Mike Calder and Mark Bannock, released their premier album, I Own You , last year. The Pemberton and Whistler punkers are growing their devout local fan base with shows in the Lower Mainland.
With luck our local boys will be one of the two bands chosen from the audition round to move on to the showdown and national competition, where cameras will be rolling for the Bodog Battle reality television show.
Wish them well.
