Each band submitted videos and the finals were in a drive-in style theater outside the Lake Forest Park City Hall. The judges included Robert and Tina Lang of Robert Lang Studios, Doreen Mitchum of 4Culture and Nathan Yaccino of Ballard Baitshop. Below is of the winning videos!
JAZZ | SOUL | ROCK | FUN
After being diagnosed with a tumor that threatens her right arm, Marina Christopher felt a fire to further launch her dream project. Writing and recording in between surgeries and radiation therapy resulted in 'Marina and The Dreamboats', a sassy and soulful band performing songs with depth, humor, and a contagious amount of pure joy. 'Marina and The Dreamboats' deliver an addictive blend of jazz, soul, and classic pop and aren't afraid to throw down a New Orleans second line.
"When I listen to Marina Christopher's music I'm reminded of Joni Mitchell's pop-jazz fusion and other songwriters of the era like Billy Joel or Randy Newman. Songs are difficult to write, good songs doubly so."
