This past Saturday marked the 2014 Hometown For the Holidays competition, a show which led to local newcomers AMZY taking home both the crowd favorite award of the night as well as the top prize of taking 1st in the music surveys, winning them time at the Blasting Room, and the opportunity to open next year's Not So Silent Night.
The contest itself might be over, but this year showcased a delightful new level of camaraderie between the competing bands than we've ever seen before. Although there was less "#DenverBandBeef" than we've come to expect (and love) from this competition, we did get one big band medley out of it, and it's this fabulous rendition of "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" that the boys from Filthy T put together with fellow competitors Amzy, DeDoz, Rumours Follow and Ivory Circle. Just in time for Christmas, you can throw this awesome local cover onto your holiday party playlist and just wait for friends to ask you who it is. Mad props to Filthy T for putting this all together, and consider this your "happy holidays" from your Ultra5280 family to yours.
