While the weather in northern Ohio began to cool down, things were starting to warm up for local top 40 band Blu Pi. The band, led by the young entrepreneur Jai Latimore reached new heights late November of 2016 when he was contacted by multi grammy winner CeeLo Green. "I still can't believe it, he was just browsing through YouTube and came across our cover of his hit single entitled Crazy and he decided to send us a message via YouTube, it was wild". Those are the words of the artist Jai as we sat down with him to discuss the performance that got him and his band Blu Pi to 3rd place position in a nationwide band completion!
Blu Pi performed a show at an outside wedding recital and left the guest wanting more. The video never was meant to draw a crowd but it was submitted on Facebook anyways and thats when CeeLo noticed it a month later. The band was in shock with the news and decided to enter the contest. Little did they knew, people from all across the USA would soon vote for this band from Akron, OH.
