Battle of the bands. Need your help. Support jems and live music

Hi everyone at Jemsite. I need your help!
My band Vex are in a battle of the bands competition and we need votes to get into the final!
We all play jems in the band and thought all the fellow lovers of jems would help. Simply go to klfm.co.uk and look on the battle of the bands voting page and click 'vote!' next to VEX.
Thank you for everyone who supports

Re: Battle of the bands. Need your help. Support jems and live music

Well, you just joined and have only 2 posts. To most of us--it would seem you joined this site only to get votes for your band. I suggest getting involved in thread conversations here and getting to know everyone--and letting us get to know you. Members would be in a far more positive position to support someone they've been able to get to know vs. Joe Newbie just looking for votes.

I'd have to agree with AB here... also...

Don't just expect votes because you play Jems... a true music lover will vote based on your talent, not your choice of instrument.

I know a few Jem owners that have the means to buy them, but not to play them.

Along with what I posted earlier, and what Mic has added--here's another suggestion.
After we get to know you, go down to the media section and post some videos and/or sound clips of your band. While we're getting to know you--we'll also get to hear your band. I'm sure many others would like to hear it, too and it would be a great starting point for us to gravitate towards voting.
We're a great community and usually support our own. But, we don't know you yet, nor heard your music.

I, for one would gladly cast a vote for you--as long as I know what I'm voting for.
Along with those suggestions, you need 10 posts in order to be granted access to post videos, pictures and sound clips. Go get your 10 posts so we get familiar with you and you can share your music.

I play on the same local circuit to these guys and have seen them play. Good sound but evidence is needed to convince the cognoscenti on this site..

Some might not have seen it. I don't, or I would have voted.

Didn't see it Freak bro.

Back to OP, when I used to be part of contests, people voted for me because they liked what I did, I never expected them voting for me because of friendship.
These days are strange, people ask to strangers to vote but it should be like if people see something they like, they vote for it and not "hey he's my friend so I'll give him my vote.
Strange.

I'll vote for anyone here! Just as long as I know them or have seen or heard what I'm voting for.
Sorry Freak--I didn't see your thread. Is it too late to vote?
