Best National Radio Appearance

The Sh-Booms on NPR

March 18, 2017

Orlando's hottest young soul band, the Sh-Booms, did not win NPR Music's big Tiny Desk Contest. But they stood out enough among over 6,000 entries to still command a feature, something NPR did for only a few of the most memorable contestants. Of course, we jam out to them from our car speakers all the time. But it was a big shot of local pride in the arm to hear them transmitted on the national airwaves as part of a legit story. See? We told you they were special.
