CHEATING DAYLIGHT FANS CHEER MALIBU WIN

Cheating Daylight fans cheer at Malibu

Ho hum, just another award for Cheating Daylight.

OK, it's not become quite that boring for the three Vacaville brothers and two Lakeport siblings. But any more of these honors and someone's going to have to add a room to put all the trophy hardware.

Latest mountain conquered for the lads: "Best New Artist" at last week's 2013 Malibu Music Festival and Awards Show at the Smothers Theatre at Pepperdine University.

On the heels of winning the 2012 Indie Artist of the Year, 2012 Rock Artist of the Year, the Malibu triumph adds more street cred to the band that started two years ago.

And there are still upcoming awards shows -- four in 2013 and early 2014 -- that are up for grabs, which makes manager Greg Bennett one happy grown-up.

Bennett, still fresh off the Malibu high, said the "Artist of the Year" honor "hopefully continues to legitimize the credibility of the band in the eyes of the music industry."

The recent honor "adds to their considerable music résumé," continued Bennett, "as the journey toward building a long and substantive career continues."

Cheating Daylight -- Jesse, Kyle and Jaden Crosson and Jacob and Connor Gill -- excelled under the pressure of the Malibu show, Bennett said.

"They really are seasoned performers and road warriors, who are used to the bright lights," Bennett said. "They have appeared on so many red carpets and performed at so many legendary venues, they were prepared for an event of this magnitude."

Bill Crosson, dad to the three Vacaville brothers, said of the event, "clearly this was a whole new level of show biz. The compliments from some famous artists was surreal to hear. The band really felt this was validation that they can hang with the big boys on any stage. They are thirsty right now

for more."

Cheating Daylight beat the Coo Coo Birds and Nightmare and the Cat for "Best Artist" accolades and deserved the top spot, Bennett said.

"They have worked hard at refining all the components that go into success at this level and their effort paid off with an exceptional performance on stage, back stage and on the red carpet," Bennett said.

Backstage, the fab five took photos with actor Dick Van Dyke, whose best work happened long before the musicians were born.

No matter.

"Another amazing icon that these five young men get to add to their collection of musical memories," Bennett said, acknowledging that "they may be too young to really appreciate the significance" of meeting veteran stars.

Next up: Opening for rocker Eddie Money at the Uptown Theatre in Napa on Nov. 22.

"We're thrilled to have Cheating Daylight making their Uptown debut," said Mindi Levine, Uptown's marketing director. " It's always a big pleasure for us to be able to showcase up-and-coming bands, with an extra bonus that they are from the area."
