The Grand Prize:
Sons of Freud’s Wife
“Sons of Freud's Wife is a six-piece international, compelling band that was funded around its member's love for the music of Jazz Idiom, Charles Mingu's. The Sons will leave you with a full heart and a dancing soul through its In-your-face, chaotic and humorous musical attitude and appearance on stage.” During the finale they did exactly this and that is why they have won the Grand Prize.
The Jury Prize:
James Martin Band
With a mixture of original material and some classics, the James Martin Band is a high energy contemporary New Orleans Jazz/Funk Band featuring some of the New Orleans’ top next-generation talents. During the final they definitely convinced every one of these talents. The jury felt that the performance contained so much energy that after a few numbers they would have preferred more variety. That is why they were awarded the Jury Prize to help them find the right balance.
The Individual Prize:
Steven Glenn won the individual prize by convincing the audience and jury during his performance with the James Martin Band. He stood out from the band at the back of the stage and demanded everyone’s attention with an amazing solo. He will receive an Artist Support Package to help accelerate his European career!
