Sweet, sweet victory! Facing the toughest of competion from Philadelphia, Delaware and New Jersey, Philly’s own Mountain Man triumphed at the Emergenza regional finals on Saturday, June 30th. Held at the Trocadero main stage, the Men went up against 12 other fantastic bands and came out on top. This win secured Mountain Man as Philly’s best both by audience mandate as well as the approval of a panel of judges: those in attendance at the Troc voted the band into the top 6, while the judges made the final call to place them at number one. It was an electrifying evening.
Last Friday, July 6th, Mountain Man moved on to the Emergenza Eastern National Finals, where they subsequently rocked the pants off of New York City’s Webster Hall. There, they faced 27 other bands from all over the east coast, and were placed seventh by a panel of judges.
Mountain Man would like to sincerely thank all of the fans, family, and friends that came out with their support every step of the way. This excitement and adventure would not have happened without you! For more information on the band, be sure to visit Mountain Man’s MySpace page.
