Garenne win Battle of the Bands

Beau Sejour rocked out on Friday 4th September as the School of Popular Music hosted the ultimate Corporate Battle of the Bands 2020.

Five bands from Butterfields, The Medical Specialists Group, Ravenscroft and Carey Olsen joined the Garenne Construction Group Team in the battle with Garenne ultimately being crowned winners.

The Garenne team of John Waterman (guitar/vocals), Dean Winsall (Saxophone), Luis Morais (Guitar), Scott Michel (Bass/Vocals) and Daz Carre (Drums) commenced their set with a rendition of Baker Street where Dean wowed with his Saxophone solo, followed by John belting out the lyrics of Still Got the Blues. Their finale was a metal rock version of the George Michael classic, “Careless Whisper”.

The evening was enhanced as students of the School also performed.

The Band will be donating their ‘winning’ charity prize pot of £1000, (and Garenne Group will be matching it with an additional £1,000), to go the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation, which is committed to supporting premature babies, children and their families by the provision of medical professionals, equipment, training and counselling along with other facilities or activities as and when required.
