Heard of GBOB before?

What's GBOB?

It'd actually pronounced as "G-BOB". It's stand for Global Battle of the Bands.

Here come some of the explanation and brief history about GBOB from Wikipedia:The Global Battle of the Bands (GBOB) is an international Battle of the Band competition, where bands from many different countries compete in original live music performance. It was held for the first time in 2004 and the prize is 100,000 American dollars pack, the GBOB special gold trophy, the chance to go on a world tour and the title of "The Best New Band In The World".

These were the Winners of GBOB for the previous year:
Second (Spain) 2004
Kopek (Ireland) 2005
Heavy Mojo (USA) 2006
Boys In A Band (Feroe Islands) 2007

Rustic (China) 2009

Thanks to Nuffnang, I was invited for the Press Conference of GBOB Malaysia as the media.

It was held at The Celebrities Hall of Music, SOHO, Solaris Mont Kiara

I was usher by a group of Band lovers.

The place is awesome & it's totally great for event.

There's also performance by the champion for the GBOB Malaysia representative.
