The Blue Band Needs Your Votes

As one of the most well-known student organizations on campus, the Penn State Blue Band has received numerous accolades. Now, they are looking to send a group of representatives on an all-inclusive trip to Las Vegas to open for John Legend and Canadian rock band Walk Off The Earth.

All the Band has to do is win Polk Audio’s music video contest, which asked interested groups to submit a video of themselves covering the Doobie Brothers’ “Listen to the Music.” You can check out Blue Band’s rendition here. The video embodies many aspects of the Penn State experience and took the group more than a week to film.

The Blue Band already passed the initial judgment stage, in which Polk narrowed down its list of submitted videos to 16 final options. Now, it’s up to voters to ensure that the Band has the highest number of votes when the contest ends on December 20. Currently, the Blue Band is the clear frontrunner with 1,103 votes, with the next closest artist having 226. However, with more than two weeks until the voting deadline, the other groups have plenty of time to catch up. Voting for the band is pretty simple — like Polk Audio’s page, find the Blue Band’s video, and hit “vote.”  You can vote once a day, so be sure to spare a minute of your Facebook stalking to support the Band!

Performing in Las Vegas would be an incredible opportunity for this group of hardworking students, especially opening for an artist as big as John Legend. Voting on Facebook is a very simple way to help out everyone’s favorite band.

We wish the Blue Band the very best of luck!
