2011’s Big Ticket Festival was unbelievable! Under my prevue, the Indie Stage ran very well over all and we had a marvelous selection of bands come through our stage! Thirty five bands performed over a three day period and really put the judges through their paces! The judging was tight but we eventually got down to the following Indie Winners: for the genre; Gospel/Hip Hop/Rap/Urban; Steve Robertson Band, for Worship: Nate Marialke, and for Rock/Alternative: Compelled, who also won the overall competition and a chance to compete in Nashville. I had the opportunity to take the stage as well and was able to persuade the Singers from Steve Robertson Band to back me up. If any of you can ever make the Big Ticket, don’t miss out on the talent at the Indie Stage!
