Band Battle III at Jillian's with Project Live

Brainchild of Matt Cavinto, Project Live took to the stage at Jillian's last night for their inaugural performance and proceeded to win their Band Battle III. With the finals coming up on August 4th, they called me yesterday to add a little spice to the mix in the hopes of getting a spot on that final show. Whether I helped at all or not, we won! A couple of great rock bands opened up the night, followed by a sorta-jive rapper, but Project Live managed to take home the gold from the judges. Stay tuned for a follow up report after the finals on August 4th at Jillian's -- if you want to help cheer us on, come on down!
