The Bomb Squad Wins: Group to Perform Live on American Music Awards
The Bomb Squad took first place in last nights New Music Award competition, held at the Knitting Factory in New York City. That means the band will perform at the American Music Awards, which will be broadcast live on ABC on November 16. The victory is a bit of a Cinderella story, as the group only made it to the finals after New Jersey-based Mere withdrew for personal reasons, prompting executive producer Dick Clark to say, While it is unfortunate, it does open up the door for another talented band, The Bomb Squad, to take full advantage of this opportunity. Clark was on hand last night and announced the winning band.
The Bomb Squad plays a Halloween show next Friday at Tammany Hall in Worcester, MA. The official website is www.bombsquadonline.com.
