Lately I have been seeing different bands starting to make a name for themselves. What bands do you know are rising up? And what do you think of these bands? James Madison has been steadily improving over the years, and had a wonderful show in 2016. Not only did they win a competition, place only .1 behind first at the next competition as jumped 10 places at BOA San Antonio, they also managed to get chosen as a feature band at the Fiesta Band Festival. What do you think of this band?

Y'know.... it's kind of really tacky to start a thread under the pretense of talking about "rising/underdog bands" (even though there's already another thread about it literally 2 lines down), then basically use the opening post to hype your affiliated band (but not actually claim it as a band you're affiliated with, despite the fact the band name is in your ID) as the prime and only example. Then afterward, closing the post by redirecting the focus of the topic from "rising/underdog bands" to "please say nice things about my band?...pretty please?". 

It wouldn't be so tacky if you owned up that it was your band, made a casual mention of why you thought they were rising, and then maybe name off 3 or 4 other bands that you've noticed are in fact rising and talk about them in detail.

Sorry, I didn't mean anything tacky. I was mentioning my band because we ARE starting to find ourselves, but I was just waiting for someone's thoughts on other bands and then I was going to add the bands I see.

Here are some bands I have been watching:
Pioneer
Vandegrift (because they have not yet been to GN)
Dripping Springs


Also, the thread younger talking about discusses more well known bands that are foreseen to improve in the future. My thread is about either lesser known bands or bands thatvarent given the credit they deserve. That's why I created this thread. It wasn't meant to be tacky. Sorry if that bothered you.

And yes, I do go to Madison and was trying to put our name out there and see what people actually think of us and not putting things in people's head.
Again, sorry for the confusion.
