A St. Leon band is hoping community members can help them win a nationwide contest.

A St. Leon band is asking for community support.

The four members of My Brothers Keeper teamed up with local singer Brittany Gillstrap, 21, and entered Safe Auto’s Do the Jingle Competition.

Contestants re-create or re-invent the famous Safe Auto Jingle. All video submissions are featured on the Safe Auto website.

The band is currently in third place in the nationwide contest. If the band wins, they will receive $5,000 and a chance to appear in a future advertising campaign.

My Brother’s Keeper is a bluegrass/ progressive acoustic band consisting of brothers Benjamin, 22, Titus, 19, and Joshua Luckhaupt, 24, all of St. Leon. The fourth member of the band is Wyatt Murray, 18, of Brookville.

“Music is something that I have been having fun with and now something I would like to do full time,” Benjamin Luckhaupt said. “I know other members of the band would like to as well, so hopefully in five years, music can be a full time opportunity.”

Winning the Safe Auto Competition would allow the band to gain more financial flexibility and national exposure, which could lead them one step closer to their dream.

Anyone who wants to vote for the Brittany and the Brothers can visit the Safe Auto website.
