Best Cover Artist / Band

Gold Winner The Mellotones

Silver Winner Signal Hill

Bronze Winner Shameless

“We play great tunes and have been playing them for a long time,” says The Mellotones bassist Mike Farrington of the group’s success. Having made a mark around town for over 20 years (catch the band at Bearly’s Thursday nights), Farrington says it’s all about picking “the kind of music everyone likes. It has to turn us on first before it’ll ever make it to the setlist.” No hit song stays in the roster for long. “We just keep trying to improve, otherwise you get stale.”
