The opportunity to share a bill with Bruce Springsteen, Soundgarden and Paul Simon is rare, especially for a band that only started a year ago in Howard County. Yet that is the position Dreamboat Armada finds itself in, fighting to earn a spot at Hard Rock Calling Festival 2012 at London's Hyde Park on July 13-15.
Dreamboat Armada won the local round of the Hard Rock Rising 2012 Competition on March 29 at Hard Rock Cafe Baltimore. The quartet beat out Redwud and Jet City Vega, and moved on the global competition which features 86 different acts.
Judging by the YouTube video that was created to spread the word about the competition, the band has a sense of humor — along with pipes — it isn't afraid to show. Click here to watch the video.
