We are delighted to announce that we have been crowned winners of Event and Sternberg Clark's Beat the Brief 2015 talent contest! We competed in the final at Event360 at The Roundhouse against mariachi band Beato Burrito, and were voted in first place after an audience poll.
We won our semi-final heat last week at Guanabara after successfully performing to a brief: we were challenged to develop a tailored performance for the UK launch of a fictional Brazilian biscuit brand. We performed a three song set, rounding off with a reworking of Frank Sinatra's The Coffee Song, aptly retitled The Biscuit Song (...they have an awful lot of biscuits in Brazil...)
Here we are received comments after our performance:
In the finals, we took to the stage with a set of our favourite numbers including The Andrews Sister's 'Strip Polka' and our version of Meghan Trainor's 'All About That Bass'.
Our winnings? You ask. As well as a cash prize we will be performing at the Event Awards at the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo in October! Wish us luck! X
