If you haven’t been lucky enough to catch this radio ad featuring Mineral Point’s own Point Five, then click on the white triangle at the far left below to take a listen.
The Point Five radio spot is part of American Family’s “Dream Fearlessly” campaign. Through these ads, Point Five can now be heard all over Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, which has led to greater out-of-state sales of their latest CD, Pecatonica, named for the mighty river that flows alongside the local hills of SW Wisconsin.
While those in Mineral Point have been Point Five fans for years (see Gimme Five), it seems that the band is getting well-deserved notice outside our fair city. Two of their songs are in the Broadjam top 10 for Rural Folk music. They received this spot-on excellent review by Scout Magazine. And, they are nominated in several categories for MAMA (Madison Area Music Association) Awards. (To vote for Point Five, click here. You will be asked to donate $5, but it’s worth it, right? Just think of all the times Point Five has played in town for free.)
Congratulations Aaron, Monica, Paul, Carole, Andy and Meghan! Thank you for making us proud and for dreaming fearlessly.
