The contest winner will be the band that receives the most votes beginning,

The bands under consideration are:
One-Eyed Doll – The dynamic duo of Jason Rufus Sewell and Kimberly Freeman have been away from their home state of Texas for most of the year working with Producer Sylvia Massy, (Tool, System of a Down, Johnny Cash) on a new full-length album to be released next year. Freeman, who was named the 2011 Hottest Chick in Hard Rock in Revolver Magazine, recently announced a Winter Tour with Mushroomhead. Kimberly Freeman is one of the most dynamic front women in Rock music today. Freeman is sponsored by Tregan Guitars and has her own Signature Guitar.
A Good Rogering – Also sponsored by Tregan Guitars, A Good Rogering (AGR) have been touring off their latest release “Long Overdue” and working in the studio on their next release for the past few months. The team of Skunk Manhattan and Chef Bull RD have now incorporated a full time drummer, Rex into the fold for a powerful trio that will shake the very foundations of your rock and roll soul.
JJ Henson & Snakebite Ridge – San Antonian JJ Henson began singing at Bluegrass Festivals when he was 11 years old with his granddad Dub Grissom. After serving in the Military, JJ came back to music and found himself at the Colgate Country Music Showdown and in deep competition with Nashville Recording Artist Buddy Jewell, making it as far as the semi-finals. Henson came back to Texas and formed Snakebite Ridge and began touring around the state. It wasn’t long before he was asked to represent the State of Texas in the Grand Ole Opry’s “Sing Against The Stars” contest where he placed 14th out of 58 contestants. This year, Henson made it to the Semi-Finals of the hit NBC Show “The Voice.”
Devil’s Hollow – A true Texas Jam Band reminiscent of The Allman Brothers, San Marcos, Texas based Devil’s Hollow have all the elements of a great band, musicality, great writing, charisma, and raw talent that make this South Texas five piece one of the most exciting bands to listen to and better yet, see live.
Say Revenge! – This band has so much upside you cannot help but be excited about their prospects. Say Revenge! released their debut CD “Rough Night, Sugar?” in November to rave reviews. The band consists of Christina Rodriguez (aka Gigi Rodden), Maria Benevides (aka Mari Mayham), Ed Gutierrez (aka Franken-Eddie) and Chris Compean (aka Chris Crash). “Rough Night, Sugar?” is what a debut album should be; full of talent, lust, love and of course, zombies!
