Slump A Go Go

Roll out the red carpet Hollywood, Slump is in town. Slump ransacked the competition at Fortune Magazines Battle of the Corporate bands at the Key Club in Hollywood Ca. Slumper's took to the road in Limos and Buses to knock the socks off the competition. Considering Oceanside's all around natural talent and world class support, was there really any question that Slump would be moving to the next round. They were first to hit the stage and the first winners anounced. Slump set the bar so high that the remaining contestants need not apply... Seriously. Eric Brown and Miss Mandy Cole leading the Vocal front. While Jim, Johnny and Jeff flank the stage with strings Sean Gildea sets the Pace with the funkiest drum and base.

Money,Money,Money... MONEY!!!
