I know the other bands. who is Gaslight? Do they even play out anywhere? or maybe just a basement band.

This is Jason from the band Gaslight. There is no fraud occurring that we're aware of whatsoever. Our votes did shoot up, but I think it's because we asked our friends in Raiders football and all our families to vote the past few days in an effort to win this battle. We got a big response, which we really appreciate, but Mudfoot is doing really well too. It's unfortunate that the commentary has been reduced to name calling. If you aren't familiar with our band, please check out our web site at www.gaslightband.com to see where we have played and where we will be playing. Best of luck to all the bands...Jason

I believe Mudfoot had around 40 votes for the same 3 weeks then shot up to 60+ votes in the past 3 days in response to the increase in votes for Gaslight. It's great that 2 Long Valley bands have so many fans.

By the way, have any of the people critical of Gaslight every actually seen us perform? Yes, we are a new band, having formed in the spring of 2011, but we would hope you'd come and see us perform live before judging us. Best of luck to all the Long Valley bands...

We just want to say good luck to all the bands involved. Votes will come in, in waves people! when we first put the word out we shot up a bunch of votes in a few days also. Gaslight put the word out and they shot up in votes. I know Mudfoot reposted the site again yesterday morning and votes adjusted again, and I'm sure they will adjust again.Thats how it happens, Doesnt mean its fraudulant. As my own worst critic, I feel there are a few bands/preformers that should be on here over us anyway. Remember music is not a contest, but subjective. CBR and RRE are great bands and I know have a much larger fan base then Mudfoot and Gaslight put together. I'm guessing they or thier fans are unaware they are even part of this, or maybe their lack of votes is due to them not being from Long Valley. Who Knows! On a more important note, I understand Mudfoot and Gaslight will be preforming at a benifit for Glenn Lightner together, So in my eyes both bands are great supporters of their home town and know what really matters!
