WELLINGTON funk band The Blue Room Baboons are asking people to help them win a slot at The Godney Gathering festival this summer.

By voting for the group at https://www.facebook.|com/groups/TheGodney|GatheringGlastonbury/, you can help them win the chance to play at the festival, which the band believes could help them in their quest to play Glastonbury.

The band said: “We have put ourselves down to play at The Godney Gathering – they have a slot for an unsigned act. It’s a great little festival that has had some surprisingly big talent, so we believe this could be a gateway to playing the big one – Glastonbury Festival.

“However, we need you to vote for us. It would be amazing if you could all join the Godney Gathering group on Facebook.

“Then leave a comment that simply says ‘Blue Room Baboons’ on the status about the unsigned stage.”
