Dan Masterson wins Last Band Standing in New England
BOSTON, MA - October 15, 2016
Boston-based alternative singer-songwriter, Dan Masterson, won the title of Last Band Standing in New England before a sold-out crowd at The Hard Rock Café in Boston. The talent showcase, presented by The New England Music Awards, received nearly 200 submissions and featured dozens of bands from around New England.
Masterson competed in the first round on September 9, 2016 and advanced to the finals after receiving the highest scores from a panel of industry judges. At the final, the band performed an impressive set of original piano-driven pop-rock, topped off with an energetic cover performance of Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now."
The five judges at the final applauded Masterson and his band for their resilience, musicianship, and audience engagement.
"Do you know why you get bonus points from me? Because you've got grit. You made it to the 2014 finals, got knocked down, but you came back and tried it again because you wanted it that badly. You've got passion, and in competing again this year - with an improved act - it shows." - Victoria Wasylak (staff writer, Vanyaland)
After the victory, Dan expressed his gratitude for the many friends and fans who have supported him on the long road to this achievement.
