Jack Pearadin and Doug Nelsen found a 1.73-carat diamond after nearly a year of searching the park's field.
With their back-lit band logo signs and smoke machine, Se7en Sharp definitely brought a level of theatricality to the showcase that hasn't been seen in a while.
Judge Sammy Williams wrote that the five-piece was the "most entertaining band I have seen yet. Vocalist brought it Scott Weiland-style, vocally and physically."
Epiphany's take: "Seamless. 'Nuff said."
The Tyrannosaurus Chicken contingent was impressed with Se7en Sharp's showmanship and musical chops, but found the set lacking in some regards. "Good showman. Tight group. Good musicians, but terrible tone. Great band, but nothing new and exciting. With that much talent, I need some originality."
