Wedding band from Derby make semi finals of national competition!
Derby Wedding band ‘Dammit Jack’ were hugely proud to have been selected as one of the final seven for ITV’s ‘Sing It To Win It’ competition’. They were picked out from thousands of applicants to appear on ITV’s show ‘Good Morning Britain’.
After sending a video of themselves performing ‘I Wanna Be Your Lover’ By ‘Prince’ they received an email with news that they had been selected. They were then asked to pick a song out of a preselected list of ten, to learn and perform with just one week to perfect it! They chose the song ‘Red Red Wine’ by ‘UB40’ as it was the most familiar to them.
Just a few days after filming ITV showed clips of the auditions on the show Good Morning Britain and also on their facebook account. Not Bad for a Derby wedding band! – Please click here to see the video on Dammit Jacks FaceBook page!
