Best New Band

1st Place: The Dust of Men
2nd Place: Hannah Hebl (tie)
2nd Place: Jenny and the Jets (tie)
3rd Place: Love Taxi

The Dust of Men have already gained quite a following in the Valley since releasing their first album What the Morning Shows last December. The five members describe their sound as what would be created if “modern, guitar-driven alternative rock was birthed in Depression-era Kansas.” Their music appeals to a wide audience and it looks like they’ll be a solid presence around here for quite a while. Tying for second are singer/songwriter Hannah Hebl and live- band karaoke hosts Jenny and the Jets. Hebl’s manifestation in the EC music scene has been recent but significant and her debut EP, Hallelu, showcases her incredible vocal talents while Jenny and the Jets have made live-band karaoke at The Plus a weekly go-to for many. Third-place winners Love Taxi are a funk/soul/pop cover band formed by UWEC music students with a jazz emphasis. Their live shows are a dance-y good time. –Lindsey Quinnies
