War at the Button music contest finishes on a high
Saturday night was the conclusion of War at the Button; the result of a summer long contest featuring 36 acts with only three prizes up for grabs.
Run by Searchlight Productions, The Sound Training college and The Button Factory, War at the Button was a fantastic showcase of talented Irish musicians. As these things go, not everyone can go through, and in this case there could only be three winners.
Saturday nights finalists were Barry Jay Hughes, Loop Culture, Sub Motion, Alex Jordan & Co. and Last Second Magic. They battled it out on stage in front of a fantastic supportive audience.
Following a sensational night of music, with each artist bringing it all, the winners were announced. With prizes of sound recording up for grabs, tensions were high.
Third place went to Sub-Motion, second place was awarded to Barry Jay Hughes, with Loop-Culture securing first place. All acts will benefit from high-quality recording, and the opportunity to work with Grouse Lodge Recording Studios, Temple Lane Studios, Fergal Davis Mastering, Bandpages, Temple Lane Rehearsals and Sound Training College.
Well done to everyone involved.
