Didn't think they'd accept my vote with a Qld phone number but they did. Terms
and conditions say it's for NSW residents only, so hope we get counted.

BTW, I listened before I voted and enjoyed it. Good luck to them.  8-)

An update.
( Ryan Day is my son )

Boys close to livin' on a prayer
Rod Bennett

11 January 2008

OVERPASS guitarist Ryan Day says there aren't many competitions around these days dedicated to rock.

The Triple M Bon Jovi competition, however, is one of the few and Overpass has made the top five and the chance to support these international rock stars.

The Bon Jovi January 20-21 gigs are not shows at which to sniff.

The two sold-out shows are at Acer Arena, which has a capacity of 20,000.

"You can't buy that kind of exposure," Ryan Day, of Brookvale, said.

This week the general public has been hopping online and voting for its favourite. Day's hopes are high that it will be Overpass with their song Insane.

"It would be a dream come true for us," he said. "But even though you dream about it, it's the sort of thing you think will never happen."

Winning the competition would be a nice release from Overpass's self-imposed hiatus the band has been holed up in the studio polishing its new six-track EP release, slated for March.

"We'll be hitting the gig circuit after that," the guitarist said.

Late last year the group was selected for the top five in the rock category for the Music-Oz Awards.

The four-piece has also appeared on Rove Live, atthe NRL semi finals (2006 and 2007), and at the Tri-Nations Final in 2006.

"Even if we don't win I think it will be great exposure for the band," he said. "It will be an excellent morale boost and give us confidence that we're on the right track in what we're doing.

"Just as with the MusicOz, it's cool to be recognised by people in the industry. Maybe some record company bosses will take notice.''

Voting lines for the Bon Jovi competition close at 2pm today. To listen to bands and cast your vote, visit www.triplem.com.au

Hi guys,
thanks for all your support, but Overpass missed, a band called OO La La got the nod.
thanks again for your support.

Sorry to hear that Stormy.

However, the exposure will have been good for them so pass on our best wishes, please.

Who knows when we will be buying their CDs?  May be sooner than you think.
