MidPoint Bands Make Big Splash on the Small Screen


Cincinnati, Ohio (September 9, 2008)―A little band from Tel Aviv, Israel is ready to make a big splash in the United States and it’s all based around Cincinnati’s MidPoint Music Festival.

The band Flow wanted to make their first ever trip to the U.S., heard about MidPoint through the Internet and decided to apply to be selected. After the band was booked, there were still questions about whether they’d want to jump through the hoops it would take to travel so far and play in Cincinnati. Would they really play in front of anyone? Could they afford to stay anywhere? Would they be able to book any other shows?

Well, they’ve had luck booking at least one other show and it will likely lead to a big audience. Lead guitarist Guy Tytunovich reports that the group is scheduled to appear on the Late Show with David Letterman Tuesday, September 23. This will be just four days before their Saturday, September 27 performance at MidPoint, scheduled for Midnight (Sunday morning) at the Cadillac Ranch, 41 E. 6th Street, Downtown. The band says they hope to promote their MidPoint gig during the broadcast.

This news comes just days after learning that two other MidPoint Music Festival bands are also hitting the land of TV. The Cincinnati band Seabird recently had their song “Rescue” selected to be the opening theme for ABC’s Pushing Daisies. And Seymour, Indiana band THE ELMS was recently added to the line up of this year’s Farm Aid concert, which will be broadcast for the first time on Direct TV’s 101 Network.

Seabird kicks off this year’s MidPoint with a free concert on Fountain Square, Thursday, September 25 at 6 p.m. THE ELMS hit the stage that same day at The Lodge Bar, 35 E 7th Street, at 10:30 p.m. For a full festival schedule go to http://www.mpmf.com.
