Winner: The Contraband

The Contraband is an eight-member cover band known for creating an electric party atmosphere wherever they play. “I think that’s always our goal: we want to have as much fun — if not more — than everybody that’s in front of us on that dance floor,” says Contraband guitar-player Terry Eisthen. The band members are influenced by a variety of genres, which makes it easy for them to adapt to the style of each audience. The self-contained act even provides its own quality sound system, professional equipment and lighting. —T.A.
