Detroit’s own, and Downtown Hoedown performer for 2011, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Justine Blazer[/lastfm] won big this weekend. We found out in February she was a finalist for the Ram Truck Brand’s Battle of the Bands, and this weekend she was one of the top two finalist for the contest, and Justine and her band took home the victory!
What an awesome way to represent Detroit! I’ve been saying for a while that Justine has an awesome voice and show(wo)manship and this victory seals the deal. When I heard that she won, I wasn’t surprised at all. My favorite thing about her is her live performances. Don’t get me wrong, her studio recordings are awesome. Her music video for “New Country Beat” is actually one of my top favorties from last year. But there is something about her being live that is even better!
And check out this AWESOME soundcheck:
So with this big victory, Justine and her band got $5,000, and she will be doing a lot of awesome events for Ram Truck Brand, which is also one of the major sponsors for the Downtown Hoedown this year! To see what else Justine has going on, go to JustineBlazer.com. Now, she is going to be here for the Downtown Hoedown, May 13. She will hit the stage at 3 P.M. For all of the other artists at the Downtown Hoedown, go here!
