And then there were Four...just as the NCAA heads on to New Orleans for its Final Four, the our cover band contest has entered its final phase with only a handful of the area's best bands still standing with a chance to be named the 2012 "Grand Strand's Best Cover Band."
After three weeks of fierce competition, the votes flowed in even more rapidly in Round 3 totalling more than 12,000 for the contest and leaving each of the semifinalists poised to make a run at the title.
As we narrow in on the big finale event, the Final Showdown at The Bowery on April 8 we just want to remind you to mark your calendar for this awesome live show on Easter Sunday. The event will feature not only both finalists performing for a panel of judge, but a few surpises as well ... so make sure and check out all the details on this Facebook event.
Thanks again to all the bands who've kept this interesting and brought your fans out in force each week!

Wahoo Creek Band (1) vs.
The RenoVation Band (1)
• Our take: The two top seeds in their respective brackets face off in a Final Four matchup that should be hotly contested from the get go. Wahoo Creek has built a strong following playing all over town and has parlayed that into three straight victories, while the upstart RenoVation Band has come out of seemingly nowhere to become a force in this competition. Fresh off a performance at The Taste of the Coast festival on Saturday will RenoVation continue to roll or can the Wahoo boys bang out a scrappy victory to advance to the finals?
