( 02/13/2016 11:10 am EST)

whoever set this voting system up didn .. t realize that you cannot verify true votes. ip addresses can be changed when you unplug your service and replug it in. hot spots can allow many votes and other wifi log ins. system won .. t find the real winner.

pretty offended mlc is accused of cheating. 3 of our 6 person band works in marketing .. so we .. ve aggressively promoted deli magazine .. this poll .. the kc music scene to fellow musicians .. friends .. family .. anyone who appreciates performing arts hoping to pull an upset win literally every day this week.

Huh to this persn .. ..

do your research...if you have not heard an act go look them up and listen to them. dont blindly choose just because someone you know tells you informed.

Manipulation Wins ..

posted by: Gary
( 02/13/2016 10:45 pm EST)

it .. s a sad day when band members admit that they are marketers and have figured out a way to get votes versus honor artists when they only have 400 likes on their on fb. kc deli might want to reconsider how they promote their awards in the future.

1 .. 2 didnt realize constantly promoting kc deli as a great source of local music to everyone imaginable as a band connected to various music scenes was manipulation. weve played with indie .. jazz .. funk .. punk .. whatever genre we feel like playing with.
