  3. My vote for Best Band of 2007 “Villa Vina” can be found on my fan profile at: ….This is a band I found at Irving Plaza in NYC and is one of the best progressive bands around.They get more sound out of three instruments ….Guitar, Bass and Drums than the New York Philharmonic…..check ’em out

  4. There aren’t very many bands on here that I haven’t heard of, but out of those few I have found some very brilliant bands. Thanks a bunch!
