PRESS RELEASE

CAPE MAY COUNTY RESIDENTS – DEAL OR NO DEAL


Cape May County residents (Mike Mattera, David Check & Evelyn Minecci)
recently received the honor of being named FINALIST by the Song of the Year (http://www.songoftheyear.com/ ) songwriting contest. Song of the Year is an international songwriting contest supporting VH-1’s Save the Music Foundation. The Song of the Year judges are some of the biggest names in music including many
Grammy Award winners.

Song of the Year is excited to recognize Mattera, Check and Minecci for their exceptional songwriting ability for the song DEAL OR NO DEAL. Mattera, Check
and Minecci competed against songwriters from all over the world for this honor. When asked what inspired the song Mattera commented that “We were watching the show one evening and whimsically started chanting Deal Or No Deal, and asked each other
could you imagine being on the show? Next thing we took out the guitars and started writing a melody and lyrics.”

Currently the trio are concentrating on their songwriting careers while hoping to land
a record or, publishing deal. “A record deal would be fantastic, but a chance at being
on the TV Show DEAL OR NO DEAL would be huge”.
