Major Powers & the Lo-Fi Symphony Wins The Deli SF’s Best of 2013 Readers' Poll

Major Powers & the Lo-Fi Symphony Wins The Deli SF’s Best of 2013 Readers' Poll

This Year’s Readers' Poll Winner: Major Powers & the Lo-Fi Symphony

We’re sincerely pleased to congratulate Major Powers and the Lo-Fi Symphony for winning The Deli San Francisco Best of 2013 Readers' Poll (for emerging artists). This hard working band was able to beat out 50 of the Bay Area's best and brightest emerging bands for the coveted title of our Year End Poll’s top artist. This self-proclaimed “Adventure Rock” ensemble creates large overtures of sound that resemble bands like Weezer, and a more lyric and melody driven Andrew W.K.. We wish them the best of luck, and are always proud to see emerging bands succeed in the Bay Area.

Keep a lookout for an exclusive interview with Major Powers next week!

Runner Up: Down Dirty Shake

Down Dirty Shake is an incredibly enthusiastic band that always throws a hell of party. We’re so happy to give them an honorable mention because they crusaded hard and were in the lead early on in the voting process. With over 300 votes, this band didn’t do to shabby and we want to highlight their hard work, and their ability to pull their fans together. They’re always winners in our eyes.

Down Dirty Shake’s live shows are always a blast! Make sure you make it out to experience their high energy performances and psychedelic soul vibes.

Runner Up: The California Honeydrops

This is another early frontrunner band! The California Honeydrops are a veteran Bay Area group that deserves a lot of respect for their loyal fan base and great music. With a smooth classic rock and roll, blues sound, you’ll appreciate their well produced throwback musical style and songwriting. Make sure you support this amazing local band in all their endeavors. - Jordannah Elizabeth, Editor
