One more appeal, I don't want to spam a board I have tremendous respect for, so after this I'll just answer questions, but please, hear me out.
I know some of you know me as an old friend, some as family, and some as a new acquaintance, and others, not at all. I'm sending this with the hopes of appealing to you on an individual level. I need your help, and I need it badly. They say opportunity knocks once, and well, that tap has come to my door in the form of a Battle of the Bands. My group, an indie steampunk group called The Dustin Kahlil Band, has made it into the final running and we need votes to make it through. Voting is free and there are no other obligations involved...just a couple of mouse clicks is all it takes and you could very well help push us up to where we need to be to win this thing and go to London.
Here is the link to vote: http://www.facebook.com/hardrockcafebiloxi/app_205164529573076
Just scroll down till you see Dustin Kahlil Band and click "Vote".
If you have already voted, then please (and I can't ask this enough) spread the word to people we may not know, networking this out is going to be key to us getting there. For me, this is no longer about my band winning, it is an underdog struggle to achieve, to represent all the other underdogs out there, to help my home which I love be represented on a global stage, and a chance, just maybe, to finally wrap my fingers around a dream that has been in my heart since I was twelve years old.
I thank you in advance, with all earnestness and sincerity. We cannot do this without friends and family backing us up, we can't do this without you.
