ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany Hip Hop Band will perform at one of the most famous music festivals in the world.
A promoter heard Unbreakable Bloodline perform recently and invited them to the South by Southwest 2016 music, film and art festival in Austin,Texas.
Members say they actually set a goal more than a year ago of making it to South by Southwest.
"It just came our way by blessing, but we've also been prepared," said Vernon Cruz, Unbreakable Bloodline member. "We worked hard and for something like this we prepared everyday for it. We travel on the weekends, we practice our craft. We worked really, really hard at it. This is something we do everyday."
Unbreakable Bloodline was named Best Hip Hop Band in Georgia last year by the Georgia Music Association.
The band leaves Tuesday for Texas where they're scheduled to perform at least two shows.
