Local Band Wooster Heads to LA Thursday

In June of 2010 local Santa Cruz band Wooster entered the Ford Gimme the Gig contest along with 2,500 other bands from around the country. Ford has been looking for the best independent musicians and bands out there to compete for the grand prize of having their music produced by Grammy Award winning producer Don Was.

After making it through several rounds of competition, including playing live at a Ford Fiesta event this past October at the Escondido Fair and most recently garnering over 6,000 votes on the Gimme the Gig website, Wooster has made it to the final 7 bands.

This Thursday, February 17, Wooster and seven other bands will compete for the grand prize Battle-of-the-Bands Style at the world famous Whiskey A Go Go on the Sunset Strip in LA.

The party bus from SC to LA leaves Thurday morning at 10 am. Check Wooster’s Facebook page for details on how to get on board. If you can’t make it to LA the action will be streaming live on Gimmethegig.com starting at 8 pm PST.
