  • GBOB is an idea whose time has come!

    ― Andrew Oldham, Former Manager Rolling Stones ―
  • I had a blast being a judge at GBOB. There wasnt one single band on the stage who didnt deserve to be there. I really like the concept and hope it grows year on year.

    ― Steve Lillywhite, Producer - U2, The Rolling Stones ―
  • Winning that competition helped restore the band's confidence as musicians and songwriters, and helped us financially to continue to record, tour, and promote KopeK. All in all, it put us in the course where we are today. RESPECT

    ― Kopek, Ireland GBOB World Champion 2005 ―
  • It's very exciting to have been part of the foundation of a music event whose reputation is increasing exponentially... Participate now before GBOB becomes the next SXSW or CMJ
