Indubious wins it
Rogue Valley reggae band Indubious took the No. 1 slot Wednesday night at the Last Band Standing competition at Shenanigans in downtown Medford.
Judges included James Book with Top Secret Records, Peter Britt of Medford's Guitar Center and guitarist Craig Chaquico. Audience members got a say in the judging, as well.
"Indubious received 629 votes," says Craig Cooper of program director for 96.9 The Rogue. "Attendance was close to 2,000 people. A lot of people don't vote, but for 2,000 people to come out for an event such as this one is incredible."
Bassist Spencer Burton, key player Evan Burton and drummer Matthew Wells are Indubious. The trio plays a mix of dancehall and new roots reggae. It has two CDs to its credit, "Fresh Leaves" and "Cosmic Seed."
Indubious went toe-to-toe with about two dozen other local bands during the competition. Prizes include a Gibson Les Paul electric guitar, a cargo trailer or a band van and a recording contract with Top Secret Records of Eugene.
