Hey guys...me and the band are trying to get an amazing opportunity to play a gig at Lounge on the Farm in the UK and are on a voting system.

We were doing reallllyyyy well and got to 3rd at one point, but are slipping and are now 8th! Its still not bad, but it will just keep going down and down if we don't do anything about it.

All I ask is for you to vote. All you have to do is enter your e-mail address and confirm it via an email you'll recieve.

Here's the link to the voting:

http://www.yousaytheyplay.co.uk/voting/band/Stacey%2520and%2520the%2520Freeloaders

If you want to check us out, heres our myspace:

www.myspace.com/staceyandthefreeloaders

They are CRAPPY live recordings as it was early into our band and gigging days but I feel we have become tighter, and much more serious about doing this.

This will be so amazing to play as one of the bands playing are Toots and the maytals and other such acts will follow.

So please, please, please, help us out UG and vote for us!!

Thank YOU!!

Luke

Link Fail!
Also why should i vote for you? People work hard for month/years for these sorts of competitions, getting strangers to vote for you on a whim makes all their work worthless - no thanks!

Sorted!!

Thank you!!

EDIT: To doive...Mate, don't vote for me if you don't want to. I'm not blackmailing you, I'm asking to get a chance to play.

Apoligies if this angers you but we're all really excited to get out there as much as we can.

Surely you can understand that?

It's not specifically you - there have just been a looot of these recently - They should be in the "promote your band" forum not in the pit anyway!

EDIT: personal example - my mates band has been together for 4 years now - gigging steadily, they were diong pretty well in a thing like this, a national competition and were winning on the final day, some (piss poor) band posted a link on a games forum, got a few hundred votes from it, they lost by 20 votes in the end. Suspiciously the winning band had had more votes than their song had been played...

Yeah, this was originally there but...

99% of UGers want to help with things like this...I would, and I was told to put it here as i'd get a lot more response...ok?


Personally with these, I tend to go through all the bands and choose the best, mainly because that's what a talent competition is all about.

Perhaps. Do you think they pollsters will really take the result seriously though if they know it's just about how many people voted from a random forum. If you admit that you're recordings are rubbish then why are you telling people they are good enough to win a talent competition. If you wanted the result to be genuine and taken seriously then you would post a link to the poll and tell people to listen to what they thought was best and vote.

I dislike these requests for votes threads, it's unfair on the other bands but it's Friday so you have my vote
Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.

Bloody hell OK WE GET IT. Its not my fault your friends band didn't make it We're currently in a competition to GET some recordings because we can't afford it. I'm sorry but i'v had a really hard weekend and i'v just come on here to see if I have some support and you just put a DOWNER on it.

I don't care about your friends band

And thanks for the votes everyone else, it means a lot

Well generally these days it's every band for themself from my experience and I don't think it's going to change any time soon. It's a shame but what can you do...
