  • Fable winner of the GBOB Challenge Canada!

    Tuesday October 28th 2008

    Quebec, October 28th, 2008– On Sunday, October 26, at the Foufounes Électriques in Montreal, forteen bands from ten Quebec and Ontario regions engaged in a battle of the bands for the Canadian final of the 2008 GBOB Challenge Contest (Global Battle of the Bands).

    At the end of this highly entertaining evening, before a crowd of 250 people, the jury, made up of five music professionals, named the band Fable the big winner. This Sherbrooke band of five musicians ended up at the top of the podium as a result of its ability to pump up the crowd, the amount of energy the members displayed on stage and the punk-rock sounds they performed with the utmost professionalism.

    This victory allows Fable to fly off to London where will be held the world final of the GBOB Challenge on December 14 and 15. More than forty bands from all over the world will be performing for a chance to win $100 000$ USD and a world tour.
