Voting opens for Croydon bands in national music competition
Two Croydon bands need public votes to keep the town on the leader board of a national competition being run on Facebook.
Funk’t Up and Cellar Door are amongst 100 acts who will be playing at the CROxjam Music Festival between 3 and 6 October.
Both are currently in the top ten, and if one of them was to win they would receive a windfall of great musical equipment from Fender.
They have been put forward by the festival organisers to represent some of the diverse music currently coming out of the Croydon music scene.
CROxjam co-ordinator, John Bownas, said: “Although any band can enter this competition we really want Croydon to do well – so we’re asking all of the other bands to put their egos to bed and vote for one or other of these two acts instead.
“This will be just another great example of what a close-knit musical community we have in the town.”
Cellar Door are an acoustic duo who moved to Croydon several years ago from Hampshire.
Funk’t Up play a guitar-based style of hip-hop and run the increasingly popular ‘Beats and Eats’ nights at Matthew’s Yard.
CROxjam raises thousands of pounds for Oxfam. Entirely run by volunteers, almost every penny raised goes directly to good causes in the developing world.
Votes can be cast at apps.facebook.com/oxjam-band-of-year. Voting closes on November 8.
