Steve Armstrong & The 25 Cent Beer Band has made a lot of progress in a short time. After winning the Michigan Idol Competition in 2007, Armstrong put together a powerful lineup of top notch musicians with expertise in different genres of music and began playing in local clubs. People soon began to take note. The band won its first music award in 2009 when The Review Magazine fans voted it the #1 Country Music Band, and their reign has continued for each year through 2012. Never before has a band won this many times, in any genre of music. In addition, each member of the Band won top honors in their individual categories. In all, the band has won 12 Review music awards, which is another Review Magazine Music Awards record. Their fan base continues to grow as do the crowds at their shows. The bands highly anticipated self-titled debut album was released in mid-June 2012 with resounding success. These guys are at the top of their game and are ready to ring in the New Year with a big BANG!!
