Surrey band snags top three in Peak Performance Project

SURREY — They might be well-known as hometown heroes to some of us, but with an extra $102,700 Surrey-based band Good For Grapes could be getting a lot more exposure.

The folk-rock six-piece placed in the Peak Performance Project’s top three bands on Tuesday (Nov. 4) afternoon, alongside North Vancouver’s The Tourist Company and Langley’s Derrival.

Good For Grapes performed their PPP showcase on Sept. 18 at Fortune Sound Club.

If the band snags an overall win following the Nov. 20 finale, where the three bands will perform and compete, they could earn the top prize of $102,700 to put towards their music. Second prize is $75,000 and the third-place winners will receive $50,000.

Twelve songs by the Top 12 B.C. and Alberta PPP artists are available for free download at Peakperformanceproject.com/cometogether. The songs were recorded at the PPP’s Boot Camp at RockRidge Canyon this past summer.

All 12 of those songs are also available to be remixed via Indiloop (Indiloop.com/ppp2014) in a new contest that could send the winning mixer to the PPP finale concert on a VIP experience.

The B.C.-based Peak Performance Project is run by Music BC Industry Association and funded by 102.7 The PEAK radio station.

Past winners of the Peak Performance Project include We Are The City, Kyprios, Current Swell, Dear Rouge and Rykka, a Surrey-raised musician.
