The Gurn Killers: Showboat Winners

This past Friday, April 24, saw an epic showdown of Rock Banders at the Showboat in Atlantic City. This was the last local competition at the Showboat venue, and the winners are going to the Eastern Regionals on Thursday, May 7.

Those winners? The Gurn Killers.

You might recall the Gurn Killers from a previous post. They are fun dudes, all incredibly excited to move on to the next stage of the competition. Joel Micalizzi, Chris Daou, Luca Fusi, and Miguel Molinari played Disturbed’s “Down With the Sickness” (NOT “Give It Away”) and scored over 2.6 million.

“It was an extremely close round,” says guitarist Chris. “The bands that bookended our performance were both within something like 50,000 points of our score, and we edged out the second place band by only 15,000.” Sounds like all the bands at the Showboat deserve some hearty applause! What an awesome showing of rock prowess.

So what’s their strategy going into the regionals? “This round’s going to be about putting on a great show for the crowd and letting our personalities shine through,” said Luca, the Gurn Killers’ vocalist. “We are fearless!”

Totally fearless score.

Totally fearless score.

The boys from New York would like me to give them a shout-out on their behalf. A big thank-you goes to the rest of the crew from Almost Famous Tuesdays at the Village Pourhouse for coming out to support them. Reminder: if your friends are competing in the Total Rock tournament, it is your duty to come cheer them on. Otherwise, you are a terrible friend.

Fans of the Gurn Killers can visit their web site and even follow them stalker-like on Twitter. Congrats to the GK’s and all the bands that will be in Atlantic City on May 7. It’s gonna be awesome.
