New England Tech Produces The Big Break Contest Video – Airs During Idol Finale

Cardi’s Furniture and Channel 12’s “The Rhode Show” host a battle of the bands competition each year called the “Big Break Contest“. This year’s winning band, Fly Kite Canvas, received a 60 second commercial (music video) that aired on the American Idol finale on May 16, 2013. Cardi’s produced the commercial and purchased the air time.
