In December, Microsoft announced a contest where up-and-coming music groups could enter to win a gig playing as part of the Grammy Awards week as well as a chance to be featured in a commercial for Microsoft's Surface tablet. Microsoft will debut its new Surface Pro TV ad during the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, and it's now been confirmed that it will feature the winner of the Grammy Awards contest, the Alabama-based music group Within Reason.
The band has posted up a number of messages on its Twitter account that state that they have already filmed the commercial but no details were revealed.
Pretty awesome day today shooting for @surface commercial.thanks to the amazing crew. Everyone was super nice and fun to work with— Within Reason (@Within__Reason) February 3, 2013
The band's members did post a video of their own thanking Microsoft for their opportunity to participate in the commercial and the Grammy Awards activities.
The band was formed in late 2005 and play music that has a mix of rock, pop and blues. Within Reason have released a number of songs as well as two EPs and a full-length album, which you can purchase at their official website.
