Tank A Copy, Please

Pictured (L-R): Pop, Lock, and Drop Hits members Jefferson Brown (Little Louder), JD Groover (SeaGayle Music), Nina Jenkins (Jody Williams Songs), Emily Witters (SeaGayle Music), and Jacee Badeaux (Big Yellow Dog).

Songplugging group Pop, Lock, and Drop Hits rented a dunk tank for their recent pitch event “Tank A Copy, Please…,” hosted in the Big Yellow Dog parking lot.

Among those stopping by to listen to the pitches were Carly Strickland, Arturo Buenahora, Keith Stegall, Jason McColl, Carly Pearce, Daniel Lee, Scott Gunter and Jake Gear. If the guests decided to take a copy of the song or put it on hold, they could make their own “pitches” and dunk one of the songpluggers from 6 feet away.

It was such a success, Pop, Lock, and Drop Hits is looking forward to making this an annual or biannual event
