Good Shive Low funk-rocked their way to the top of the Big D NYE Fast Track to Fame Competition in December, earning the band a coveted spot on stage at Big D NYE 2012. The Dallas septet got the audience of over 20,000 bumpin’ with two sets on the Big D NYE main stage alongside 2011 champs Sleeperstar and local contemporaries Prophets & Outlaws. The evening proved to be quite the experience for this band on the rise. Check out the photo recap of their performance below! Also be sure to check out drummer Mike Potters’ first-hand account on his blog.
There’s not much we can say to better illustrate Good Shive Low‘s sound that the band doesn’t already say themselves. Their music …leans heavy on head-bobbing drums, nasty brass, driving bass and infectious piano melodies. We don’t know about you, but that description makes us want to party. Apparently we’re not alone, as the fans and judges in the Big D NYE Fast Track to Fame Competition have just named this budding Texas group the Grand Prize Winners.
As the ball drops (and the sun rises) on 2012, these guys will be melting faces in front of tens of thousands of attendees, and hundreds of thousands of television viewers at Big D NYE 2011. We’re honestly a little jealous we don’t live in Dallas. So join us in congratulating Good Shive Low on their win, check out their winning song CRAZY off the record” and more in the playlist below, then stay tuned to the OurStage blog to hear all about their experience.
