We did it again at the Tilted Kilt Open Mic Competition! Week 4 discovered great new talent and we got the crowds roaring fun entertainment and audience giveaways! Newcomers to our competition, Divine Knights, showed up with fans and a winning presence to take home 1st place and a 4 pack of Knott’s Berry Farm tickets! They will also now be competing in the finals for the grand prizes of $500 of music gear from Musicians Outlet, a studio demo recording from S.I.R. Entertainment Services and a 3 day trip to Las Vegas from Crater Lake Vodka! The extremely close 2nd place winner taking home Wet & Wild Palm Springs tickets was Jersey Cat and Desert Rat who performed an absolutely beautiful and heartfelt original work of Tyler Grillo’s. 3rd place was awarded to Mike Sickboy, a competition regular known for his rockabilly style and Johnny Cash songs.
