Jay's Band Notes about the Jesters

The Jesters - Covers Cup Winners 2015

And the Covers Cup winners are: The Jesters!

The other finalists were Blind Love (previous winner), ZZ Topless and Audiorage. Great fun and competition was close. In the end the final band brought the house down.

I think it was the Jesters' soulful rendition of "Too Hard to Handle" that took them over the top.

The Jesters will be featured on our Bank of the West Stage, Saturday, September 19th 10:30am -noon. Come down and cheer these guys on. And a big thank you to Redhouse Studio who donates the proceeds from the month long contest to Lafayette Partners in Education.
