With barbecue fighting bouts with rain on and off throughout the afternoon, the weather drove everyone at Rock ‘n’ Ribs, hungry or no, under the music tent for the GO Music Awards Best Band showcase. They picked a good one to pack the room for; Ilijah, Sweetwater Abilene, Cindy Woolf, Jam Room and The Cropdusters each played 30 minutes for the crowd and for the four judges present to score the performances and decide 2009’s GO Magazine Best Band winner. We have the results after the break.
After an afternoon of music beginning at 2:30 p.m. and ending at 7, the judges’ cumulative scores showed the winner this year to be The Cropdusters. The crowd certainly seemed to agree; they shouted until the staff relented and allowed the band an impromptu encore. Congratulations to The Cropdusters and to all of the contestants and category winner.
