Guess who won the Sounds Like Summer Music Festival!
There was a lot of talented bands in this very competitive contest, but our lads from Donegal Town won! Well done Ronan, Duck, Johnny, and Michael, of Pavesi! :) And the grand prize includes recording a single, and making a video. That's just great, and I'm very happy for you, good work lads, next stop the World! ;)
Here's the announcement from the Festival's website:
Donegal triumph at Sounds Like Summer!
Pavesi, the Donegal band who won heat 1, beat all the odds to win the final of the Sounds Like Summer Music Festival, beating tough competition from Strabane locals, the McBeth Sisters and Rois Kelly from Castlederg.
Boy # 7 from Donegal and Sunday Wreakage from Strabane also gave great performances, however the Donegal band impressed the judges panel with not only their song writing skills but their overall performance in front of the packed Alley Theatre.
Well done to all the bands who competed in the festival and lets see if Donegal can retain the festival prize in 2009!
Here's some pics of the McBeth sisters, and at the bottom of this page there's some links to some videos.
