Play continues in our tournament to determine—once and for all—rock’s greatest backing band ever.
The first two rounds have been completed. We enter the final conference matches in the Regional round of play. The attached grid shows where we stand as the Regionals round is played out: backingband-tournament-64
Feel free to think ahead to coming Regional battles as you begin work on the present conference match up. Meanwhile, tournament play for the Rebel Conference has begun. Four backing bands remain: The Wailers vs The Rumour and The Maytalls vs The Attractions.
Because the selections from this point forward are so crucial to future generations’ understanding of rock history, play will follow a different course of action in this round. Before any voting can take place, Townspeople are encouraged to post comments and YouTube clips of the backing bands you support in this round. You may begin launching your campaigns now. After a day or two of lobbying and counter-lobbying the polls for this conference’s regional round will open. We don’t want any rash votes on Day 1 that you may regret on Day 3 of discussion. Dig?
