The six-piece folk rock band from Tampa beat out other finalists Lions After Dark, from Clearwater, Airsickness, from Palmetto, and Stonegrey, from Land O' Lakes, to claim the grand prize worth more than $4,000 in future gigs, studio time and cash.

For the finals, the bands performed two original songs and one cover song by an '80s hair band. Dropin Pickup performed “You Give Love a Bad Name” by Bon Jovi, along with original songs “Poseidon” and “Alexander Supertramp.”
