More and more, the music industry is taking raw, fresh, inspiring music talent and turning it into conveyor belt product. Sapping it of its passion and intensity in the hopes of scoring a top-10 single on the Billboard charts. Cab 20 wants no part of that, which is why they're coming to the Sharks. "Cab 20," says manager Tom Callahan, "is an up and coming band that is already creating industry buzz...Their sound, 60's surf/punk, belies their youth, but speaks to their indie street cred and passion." To keep that indie cred alive, Cab 20 is seeking funding so they can avoid the marketing machine that currently constitutes the music industry and continue touring, creating the original music that is written solely by the lead singer, and cultivating the already thriving following they've built.
