Shameless Stage Mom Plea From Vickie

My dear old friend Vickie Jenkins has a teenage son named Casey who is in a band named Grandview, and they are trying to win a Battle of the Fans vote which would give them the opportunity to play on the main stage at SOMA on September 22. Voting ends this Sunday, September 12, at 11:59 p.m.

Here's an e-mail I received from Vickie:

Once upon a time, I promised myself and my son that I would not become another WICKED STAGE MOTHER.

...And now, a word about GRANDVIEW~

My son, Casey, is in a band called GRANDVIEW. They're currently trying to get a show on the Main Stage at SOMA (local teen club). One way to get there is by winning a contest called "Battle of the Fans." You don't have to listen to a note of music to vote for them (although it doesn't sound too bad, if you have the time to take a listen).

To vote, just go to their website at and click on "Battle of the Fans," then follow the instructions at that site. If it doesn't bother you to do so, please also pass the word to a friend/neighbor/relative/person-in-front-of-you-at-the market/etc.

Thanks SO MUCH from Casey, GRANDVIEW and Vickie!
