The 3 month search to find the opening band for Rock Against Diabetes in Las Vegas August 23, 2008 has come to an end, with Orange County's alt-rock band Starving For Gravity coming out on top as the winners. The band was pared down from a massive list that originally submitted their bands to take part, to a Top 45 list that was further trimmed to a Top 10. The Top 10 was then opened to a public vote that saw nearly 8,000 votes from fans made, with a final decision being handed down from the judges participating in the decision process.

Although the band placed a close 2nd in fan voting, they garnered a great deal of praise and respect from the judges in their overall sound as well as commitment to working with their fans for support and promotion,

Starving For Gravity will open the Pre Show Bash on August 22nd at the Rox Club in Vegas, with host Evel Dick Donato being in attendance, and performaces by Magnetico featuring Rafael Moreira, Karneval featuring Las Vegas' own Dario Lorina (Jani Lane Band) and Bumblefoot (Guns N Roses guitarist Ron Thal) and his amazing All Star Band with players such as Paul Mirkovich (Cher), Lez Warner (The Cult), Jeff Berlin, Constantine Maroulis and many others. Tickets are still available for this show (here) and at the door if any tickets are remaining. See the website for direction and address as well as full lineup for the Pre Show Bash.

The band will then open the main Rock Against Diabetes event on August 23rd, featuring acts such as Y&T, LA Guns, Leatherwolf, Magnetico, Richie Kotzen and Bumblefoot and his All Star band. The venue for this event has been moved, as the amount of requests for fan to ba able to take part live grew much too large for Deep Rock Drive to handle at their facility. The new venue will be announced this week, with tickets going on sale immediately following the announcement.
