A Reason to Celebrate! Within Reason Wins Big!
Local band Within Reason has been chosen as the winners of the Grammy LIVE: Gig of a Lifetime Contest!
"We are very excited to receive this opportunity. The most important thing to remember is that we could not have gotten to this point in our career without our fans. We hope to represent our state and the city of Birmingham in a positive way and shine a light on the Birmingham music scene." -David Koonce (Within Reason)
Anyone who has been watching the Birmingham music scene lately has probably seen the Grammy LIVE: Gig of a Lifetime Contest! A number of very talented local bands were nominated to win.

And we'll be proud to have them representing Birmingham in the Southern Division in the Grammy Gig of a Lifetime!" - Chuck Rackley (Who Shot Lizzy?) "We're so proud of all the people who voted for us. And all the bands from around here who got in this." Who shot Lizzy came in 7th out of 233.
About Gig of a Lifetime: The recording industry's most prestigious award, the GRAMMY, is presented annually by The Recording Academy. A GRAMMY is awarded by The Recording Academy's voting membership to honor excellence in the recording arts and sciences. It is truly a peer honor, awarded by and to artists and technical professionals for artistic or technical achievement, not sales or chart positions (GRAMMY Awards Voting Process: http://www.grammy.org/recording-academy/awards/grammy-awards-voting-process). The annual GRAMMY Awards presentation brings together thousands of creative and technical professionals in the recording industry from all over the world.
