"Denver" sighting in England

 - March 7, 2020

How does a guy from the south side of Chicago end up on the charts of a site from eastern England? 

The LAAMB Art & Music Promotion website was started in 2017 and initially dedicated to musicians and artists in the Lincolnshire area in Great Britain. Since then, the site has gone global, centering on "everybody who contributes to the arts."

Recently, the site started a Top Ten chart, the criteria for inclusion on two sources: one being by Readers’ votes and via Plays on Drooble, the Social Media site for Musicians. Their premier chart placing showed Tim's cover of Bob Seger's "Get Out of Denver" placing in the Top Ten. 

You can check out the LAAMB Music charts and find out more about the site and organization by clicking here.
