New bands are born every second, so every little step to set one apart helps. Recently, high-energy modern rockers Hush Hush, Commotion got a big nudge in the right direction. The Oklahoma City five-piece won first place in this year's KHBZ-FM 94.7 "The Buzz's" March Bandness Battle of the Bands.
The band took the prize money straight into Norman's Bell Labs studio to cut an EP.
"It was fun," said front man Scott Michael. "But at the same time, it was a stressful time."
"Things never go according to plan," keyboardist Chris Lusk added. "Even though it didn't go according to plan, we are very content with the final product."
They will be unveiling the finished EP at a CD release show Saturday at the Bricktown Ballroom. As part of the prize package, they also got a spot at this year's Dfest in Tulsa, which will put them in front of industry reps scouting out new talent.
