"Yah, I agree Walt, This band "Nowhere Near" should be headlining! I'm gonna call Seacrest right now to see if they can make an appearance on my "Dick Clark's Rockin' New Years Eve" bash on ABC to help us rock in the new year. If you know someone in the band Walt I sure could use some help contacting them. Nowhere Near definitely the best in the Valley!"
