The Cardboard Crowns - LiVE 88.5 Big Money Shot 2013 winners

Congratulations to The Cardboard Crowns! They walk away with the top prize of $5,000.

Congratulations are also due to Precise Kenny Creole and Black Denim and Finding Chuck who placed 2nd and 3rd respectively. Each band walks away with $2,500 in support from LiVE 88.5!

As always, thanks to LiVE 88.5 for staging another successful Big Money Shot competition! The competition brings much needed attention to our local music makers. Get out and discover some of these artists for yourself if you haven’t already. This year’s BMS Top 3 is a great place to start.

I’m already looking forward to next year.

    On behalf of the Crowns, I want to thank everyone who’s supported us through out the competition, and once again give a huge shout out to the other finalists: High Waters, Zoo Legacy, Miss Polygamy, Precise Kenny Creole and Black Denim, and Finding Chuck; you’re all AMAZING talents and we are so happy to have shared the stage with you guys! Thanks also to our parents, wives and girlfriends, friends and family, Bryan, Tomi, Tino, LIVE 88.5 crew, crown making super-pals, neighbours, and supporters from afar: YOU DID IT! The energy you brought to our shows, and the COMPLETELY overwhelming love and support you show us every day carried us though, and made us weak in the knees. You’ll be hearing from us real soon!
