Buffalo digital marketing agency secures win at 'Battle of the Corporate Bands'
Buffalo-based not-for-profit Music Is Art hosted its second annual "Battle of the Corporate Bands" this past Saturday at the iconic local music venue The Town Ballroom.
A late addition, Mouse Pad of the Buffalo-based digital services agency 360 PSG, swept three awards, including grand champion.
Mouse Pad's victory earned them a spot on the main stage at Music Is Art 2017, as well as studio time.
360 PSG has partnered with Music Is Art to assist the not-for-profit in rebuilding its website to optimize the organization's web presence and produce a larger platform for the music events, programs and culture MIA offers each year.
The musical event benefited MIA (founded by Buffalo native and Goo Goo Dolls bassist Robby Takac) and Give For Greatness. It consisted of six groups formed by area businesses: 360 PSG (Mouse Pad), Curbell Inc. (Curb Appeal), Moog Inc. (Not that Moog), National Fuel (Methane), GHD (Notorious GHD) and American Coradius Int'l (Paid In Full).
The "Battle of the Corporate Bands" was designed as a team-building activity, and participating bands were made up largely of employees of each organization.
Mouse Pad featured six 360 PSG employees, which represented about 20 percent of the company's workforce. In addition to grand champion, the group captured awards for Best Original Song and Best Individual Performer (Jessica Chizuk).
"I am really proud of our team; they were up against some great bands," said 360 PSG's co-founder and president, Joel Colombo. "We are even more excited to have the opportunity to partner with Music Is Art over the next year to enhance their digital presence."
360 PSG's Mouse Pad will be practicing their set for the next Music Is Art Festival in September 2017, while working with MIA to redesign and rebuild its website.
This website, incidentally, was created and is hosted by 360 PSG.
