Local band featured in drunk driving campaign

OWOSSO — XitPoint, a rock group based in Owosso, recently was chosen from hundreds of other performers from across Michigan to appear on the 2010 Michigan Rockers CD.

Free digital music downloads are being used to raise drunk driving awareness.

“This campaign is giving XitPoint the opportunity to use their talent and time to save lives and raise awareness for drunk driving prevention,” Executive Producer Jeff Woods said.

Through Esente Music Group’s “Rockers and Hip Hop compilation series,” XitPoint — as well as 20 other Michigan area unsigned artists — have been given the chance to make a difference with their music and reach their fans with a life saving message: Never drive drunk.

The album artwork and music is free to fans, and the campaign is free to the musicians who are participating.

When people visit the page to hear the music, they will see a host of messages-designed by high school and college students-about the brutal costs of drunk driving and other prevention messages.
