Sailor Jerry grab second spot at Rock the House in parliament

After making the final of ‘Rock the House’ the Sailor Jerry’s were pipped at the post by another Essex Band ‘Angry and the Bear’.

The competition saw 60 Members of Parliament sponsor an unsigned local band to enter the competition to win a variety of prizes including the opportunity to perform at the House of Commons.

Thurrock MP Jackie Doyle-Price said, “For a band that has only been together for 8 months, the Sailor Jerry’s have done fantastically well and impressed a lot of people.  I am really pleased for them.  They were pipped at the post by Colchester based band, proving that Essex has got talent.”

The Band won a prize package which includes the design of a band logo and a video master class.

Jackie said, “This is a great band with great style and great enthusiasm.  I am sure they will go on from strength to strength.”
